" Max Wildman is a painter who certainly knows his Alfred Wallis. His paintings are deceptively simple, and at their best are often small aphorisms of the original works of this unique St Ives artist. Once again, Alfred Wallis is made affordable! "

Alfred Wallis of St Ives - The painting career of Alfred Wallis
In 1890 at the age of 35, Alfred Wallis moved to St Ives where he set up a business as a marine stores dealer. From about 1912, after the business closed, he worked for the next ten years or so as an odd job man for a local antiques dealer. When his wife, Susan died in 1922, he found himself alone, and so took up painting “for company”.

It was inevitable that after a long-held interest in all forms of primitive and naive art, Max Wildman would eventually be drawn to the works of Alfred Wallis.
Indeed this was to happen one winter’s day during a visit to Jim Ede’s house at Kettles Yard in Cambridge. Viewing Alfred Wallis’ unique style at first hand and up-close had a riveting effect, and so began an enduring fascination for the life and work of this, the most enigmatic of St Ives characters.
