Alfred Wallis, Two Boats, 1930


In Focus: Alfred Wallis

Complementing the collection exhibition will be a single room display, profiling the work of Alfred Wallis (1855-1942). Wallis, whose work also features in the Jerwood Collection, was a key figure in 20th century British art. He was perhaps an unusual artist, having no professional training and living reclusively in St Ives during his later life. His naïve style had a profound effect and influenced a number of British artists, including Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood.

The exhibition will feature a selection of Wallis’ iconic seascapes, generously loaned by Kettle’s Yard.
