Houses at St Ives tray

by Tate
£22.50
item code: 15872

Appealing tray created by Tate. Perfect for using in an English tea or as decoration for the kitchen.

The painting on this tray is Alfred Wallis’s ‘Houses at St Ives, Cornwall’. Wallis was an English painter, fisherman and scrap merchant who took up painting in his seventies. He regarded his paintings as an expression of his experiences and as such was unaware of linear perspective. He instead arranged the objects in terms of relative importance.

The subject and colours he uses in his paintings are strongly evocative of the Cornish landscape using ships, trees and houses in colours of dark browns, shiny blacks, fierce greys and strong Cornish green.

Despite is his now acknowledged importance to the history of art, Alfred Wallis sold his paintings for a few pence at the end of his life and died in a workhouse in 1942.

Exclusive to Tate. 29 cm x 34 cm. Made in Sweden from responsibly sourced birchwood. Dishwasher safe.
