Alfred & Ben

This piece was inspired by a recent visit to the Ingelby Gallery in Edinburgh who a few weeks back had a show of works by Alfred Wallis, Forrest Bess and Frank Walter. I've been a big fan of Wallis' naive paintings of boats and harbours for a couple of years now but going to the show was the first time I'd seen this famous photograph of Ben Nicholson talking to Alfred, most probably about getting him to come to London.
