The Voyages of Alfred Wallis

The Voyages of Alfred Wallis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alfred Wallis, a fisherman, began to paint in the 1920s - strange, brilliant pictures of ships and the sea. In 1928 he was discovered by Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood and for the rest of his life, attacked by periods of madness, he painted furiously. In Matisse's War, Peter Everett explored the psyche of one of the most celebrated painters of our age. Here he performs a similar feat for an artist who knew no fame in his lifetime but whose paintings have found vast popularity since his death.
