ALFRED WALLIS AND HIS FAMILY
Born in Devonport in 1855 Alfred Wallis moved to St. Ives with his family in 1894 where after the death of his wife, he became an amateur painter. He was ‘discovered’ by Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood in the nineteen-twenties and is thought to have influenced the ‘primitive’ movement.
This book gives his family history with family trees, photographs and a map of Devonport in the late nineteen century. Information has been taken from Wallis’s letters, the books of Sven Berlin and Edwin Mullins, and the tape recordings of those who remembered him made by Dr. Roger Slack. Wallis’s letters hold pride of place and although it would be reasonable to suppose that these would give definitive information this is not necessarily the case.
