The life and work of the influential Cornish artist Alfred Wallis (1855 – 1942). Seaman, fisherman and later, dealer in 2nd hand marine goods, it was not until Wallis was in his seventies and eighties that he took up painting. The author and respected contemporary painter Robert Jones, was once a fisherman himself. His shared experience with his fellow artist and mariner Alfred Wallis has allowed him to bring new insight and factual information to the extraordinary world of this fascinating artist.
