Alfred Wallis - Artist and Mariner

Fascinating glimpses into the life and work of Alfred Wallis.

Biopic 1973 22 mins


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'.
