          Presented by Ben Nicholson 1966

          The house in this painting is of a curious shape and is featured in other paintings by Alfred Wallis. The house is always depicted from the same angle, but the rest of St. Ives is arranged around it depending entirely on what he wanted to emphasise. In this picture the house in question is the largest feature.

          Artist details

          Born in 1855 Alfred Wallis was an English fisherman, scrap merchant and painter. Claiming to have gone to sea at the age of nine, Wallis was involved in deep-sea fishing and had sailed as far as Newfoundland, Canada. In 1890 he moved to St Ives where he became a marine scrap merchant. He retired in 1912 and when his wife died in 1922 he took up painting to keep himself company.
