This exhibition of work by Alfred Wallis (1855-1942), Forrest Bess (1911-1977), and Frank Walter (1926-2009) presents three unique and uncompromising figures from the story of 20th century art. Each worked in isolation, outside the conformity of their respective societies: in Cornwall in the 1920’s; Texas in the ‘50’s and Antigua in the ‘70's, but only two of the three (Wallis reluctantly and Bess enthusiastically) have been absorbed into the written and recorded histories of the last hundred years. The work of the third, Frank Walter, is being presented here for the first time.
A number of Frank Walter paintings from the exhibition are available for sale. For details of available works, please contact the Gallery.
