"The Alfred Wallis Factor by David Wilkinson is the result of meticulous research..... [T]he 'hard yards' gained by the author will assist future researchers in their relentless quest to establish artistic quality, significance and influence." - Professor Alan Livingston, CBE "David Wilkinson gives a warts-and-all word picture of the post-war art scene in St Ives, just as it was.... [He] is to be praised for producing such a vivid, diverting, informative and surely definitive account ... Generously illustrated ... and profusely furnished with notes, this is a must-have book for everyone with an interest in the story of art in St Ives in particular, and that of Cornwall in general." - Frank Ruhrmund, The Cornishman, Sep 14, 2017 "As a social history of this segment of the art colony, it is unrivalled.... If you have any interest in this period of St Ives art, it is a book that you should own." - David Tovey, The Siren, Issue No 14, October 2017
