Jim Ede called Wallis the primitive of the 20th century', authentically 'naive without being sophisticated'. That is such an interesting concept - naive and unsophisticated. The opposite in fiction would presumably be The Young Visiters, which is naive but very sophisticated (even for a nine-year-old). Most of the Wallis paintings are undated and don't have titles, although Jim Ede gave titles to many of them.
