The Life of Alfred Wallis


This is the story of Cornish fisherman-turned-artist Alfred Wallis, whose paintings of boats from his past inspired the future of British modern art. Told from Wallis’ perspective - inspired by his crudely written letters to Jim Ede - this book takes the reader through his remarkable life; his early sailing days, his late arrival to painting, his encounters with ‘proper’ artists, his battle with mental health, and his deep concern for preserving ‘what used to be’.
