Kyffin Williams RA (b.1918) was a central figure in contemporary Welsh painting and this book, the first monograph to be published on the artist, examines the full range of his work from the mid-1940s to 2004. From the outset of his career, Kyffin Williams took both landscape and the people of North Wales as his subjects, and remained faithful to them for almost sixty years. He has realised, through his oil paintings, his watercolours and his drawings, the spirit of a mountainous landscape and its inhabitants that now forms the cornerstone upon which we understand and visualise the essence of North Wales. Including an authoritative introductory essay by Ian Jeffrey, one of Britain’s leading art historians, the book also profiles ten sites in North Wales where the artist has worked throughout his career. The inclusion of a range of location photographs by Nicholas Sinclair helps to explain both Williams’ inspiration and how he interpreted the world around him. Kyffin Williams encapsulates all aspects of one of Wales’ most famous artist and is consequently an invaluable resource for both scholars and art collectors.
