Painting from the heart

This is my review of Alfred Wallis (British Artists Series) by Matthew Gale.

A very attractively produced book about the fisherman who caught the attention of professional artists with the almost childishly simple but evocative paintings and drawings which captured a sense of being at sea with a striking use of colour and line to give a sense of movement. The text provides an engaging portrayal of his life, and the selection of works helps one to understand his appeal.
