Book Description Condition: New. On a visit to St Ives in the 1920s, the artists Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood chanced upon a reclusive, semi-literate fisherman living in poverty and spending his time, when not reading the family Bible, in painting pictures on odd scraps of board. The old man was Alfred Wallis and he became an icon of the modernist movement in Britain. This is the classic study of the life of this retired fisherman-cum-painter whose primitive depictions of boats, harbours and St Ives houses brought him recognition as one of the most original British artists of the twentieth century. Despite being the darling of the cognoscenti, Wallis died in a Penzance workhouse in 1942. Berlin's passionate plea for more sympathetic treatment of the old and infirm, published in Cyril Connolly's Horizon shortly after Wallis's death, is reproduced here for the first time.
