ALFRED WALLIS : REDISCOVERED

24 Oct 2020–24 Jan 2021

Overview

Alfred Wallis' (1855-1942) expressive drawings and paintings capture the immediacy of his direct experiences of the sea. Wallis lived in Cornwall throughout his life, working on deep sea fishing boats and then as a marine scrap merchant. Three sketchbooks made in his final year (1941) are the catalyst for this exhibition. They are filled with drawings and paintings in varying styles.
