Exclusively designed Max Wildman Greetings Card Pack
Exclusively designed for Compton Verney are these Alfred Wallis inspired greeting cards using images produced by artist Max Wildman.
It was inevitable that after a long-held interest in all forms of primitive and naïve art, Max Wildman would eventually be drawn to the works of Alfred Wallis.
Indeed this was to happen one winter’s day during a visit to Jim Ede’s house at Kettles Yard in Cambridge. Viewing Alfred Wallis’ unique style at first hand and up-close had a riveting effect, and so began an enduring fascination for the life and work of this, the most enigmatic of St Ives characters.
Research into Alfred Wallis’ life, how he came to St. Ives and how he was discovered, served only to intensify that initial interest in his paintings. A period of keen study was made of the methods, techniques and materials used by Alfred Wallis – followed by a number of experiments (conducted out of sheer curiosity!) painting seascapes and ships using only those same materials and paints that Wallis himself would have used.
Authentic looking original paintings created in mixed media on old torn card in traditional Alfred Wallis style.
