Wallis, Alfred – Lighthouse with Trawler and Fish

Oil on board. This print contains many of the aspects for which Wallis is now famous: a lighthouse, a fishing boat, the hint of a pier and – central in importance – the fish. Wallis gave disproportionate sizes to the things in his paintings he found most interesting. Here the fish are most important. Wallis once remarked to a critic writing about his paintings that when he worked as a fisherman on the luggers sailing from Mounts Bay, ‘each boat of the fleet had a soul, a beautiful soul shaped like a fish’. (Albert Rowe, The Boy and the Painter, Studio International, 1968; p29)
