The Blue Ship - Alfred Wallis - Framed Print - 12"H x 16"W

Alfred Wallis was a Cornish fisherman and artist.

Following his wife's death in 1922, Wallis took up painting. He was self-taught, and never had an art lesson.

His paintings are an excellent example of naïve art; perspective is ignored and an object's scale is often based on its relative importance in the scene, giving many of his paintings a map-like quality. Wallis painted seascapes from memory, in large part because the world of sail he knew was being replaced by steamships.
