This third display from the Kettle’s Yard collection brings together paintings by Alfred Wallis and Christopher Wood that are inspired by the sea and shore. Following the artists’ first meeting in St Ives in 1928, Wallis and Wood continued to capture innovatively their experiences of the sea. Their paintings also depict the flavour of life in port towns.

The display includes seventeen extraordinary paintings by Cornish artist and mariner Alfred Wallis, who painted from memory using the materials around him, recalling his days at sea.
