Alfred Wallis Artist and Mariner
Alfred Wallis Artist and Mariner
  • Description
  • Related

Here is a refreshing view of a simple man and his painting set against the background of Cornwall and the sea, worlds familiar to both men. While the author's own career as a professional painter puts him among the forerunners of contemporary artists in Cornwall, his book also reveals how much the Cornish landscape and heritage have influenced those who have followed in the footsteps of Wallis.

For anyone with a general interest in painting in Cornwall, or those who have followed the work of Alfred Wallis or Robert Jones - artists and mariners both - this book will prove to be of exceptional interest and great enjoyment.

Throughout the book Robert Jones uses his knowledge of the Cornish coast and the fishing trade to re-examine many of Wallis’ pictures, discovering how keen an eye the painter had for the details of the world around him. Here is clear evidence that the painting of ships and fishing vessels in distant locations are effectively a visual record of the artist’s own time spent at sea. From the Labrador Coast to Gibraltar, Wallis’ early years as a seaman can be traced in his painting and are here confirmed through official records, including contemporary crew lists.

ISBN 1841140724, hardback, 250x218mm, 140 pages. New Edition October 2006.
