Alfred Wallis - Artist and Mariner 1973

23 mins United Kingdom Director. Christopher Mason

This film celebrates the life and work of one of Cornwall's best-loved artists, Alfred Wallis (1855-1942). We're invited to look afresh at his paintings in light of the land and seascapes that inspired him. Reminiscences by friends and relatives are the focus rather than appraisal of his work by an authoritative art critic - aptly enough for an artist who worked outside the 'establishment'.
