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 naà ¯ve 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.
