Gwen John : letters and notebooks ; selected from the Gwen John papers at the National Library of Wales by Gwen John( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The artist Gwen John (1876-1939), known for her intense figure studies, portraits and interiors, was one of the most enigmatic and intriguing figures in the history of twentieth century art. This first publication of an extensive selection of unabridged letters, alongside extracts from her notebooks, sheds new light on her life, her career and her artistic development." "After training at the Slade and at Whistler's Academy in Paris, John settled in Paris in 1905, where she modelled for Rodin, subsequently becoming his lover. In 1915 she converted to Catholicism, withdrawing to the suburban village of Meudon, where she remained until her death. The letters she sent to friends and the notebooks in which she explored her artistic ideas and recorded visual impressions, often combining notes and sketches on the same page, were an important medium of expression for her. While never intended for publication, these writings, drawn from the artist's personal archives at the National Library of Wales, reveal the witty, passionate and intensely committed artistic intelligence that lay behind her work. Essential reading for all those interested in the life of this extraordinary artist and in the creative process itself. Book jacket."--Jacket

The Tempus history of Wales, 25,000 B.C.--A.D. 2000( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a beautifully illustrated, narrative history of Wales from prehistory to the present day. A small country with a great history, a highly distinguished team of historians deliver a concise and comprehensive illustrated account of the land and its people. We are taken from the story of the formation of the land and its earliest archaeological record to the development of modern Wales as a vibrant, 21st-century country. Emerging from the mists of prehistory, the dramatic impact of the conquest and settlement of the Romans is assessed. Distinct kingdoms and dynasties grew from the debris of Roman Britain, and the story of their attempts to build a nation against the backdrop of civil disunity and outside aggression is traced. Anglo-Saxons, Irish, Vikings and Normans fought with, and lived alongside, the Welsh. The Norman Conquest created further divisions in Wales between the new marcher lords and the surviving native princes, divisions not ended even by the Edwardian Conquest (1282-1284). For centuries resistance and revolt against English rule continued under leaders such as Owain Glyn Dwr during the 15th century. Gradual assimilation with England paved the way for the Acts of Union, but the history of Wales retained its own distinctive patterns. The country and its people played key roles in the great events of English and European history, whilst the impact of the Reformation, printing and wider education ensured the development and growth of a unique culture characterized by Puritanism, Romanticism, radicalism and revolt. Wales was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, towns like Merthyr Tydfil driving the engine of the British Empire. The cultural and social divide between modern, industrialized Wales and the traditional agricultural areas was intensified, and the pressures led to a great Diaspora to areas as far afield as the USA, Australia and Patagonia. Modern Wales with its National Assembly and place in Europe continues its historical role; a small, proud nation able to impress on a wider stage. - Back cover

"Bewnans Ke is a previously unknown Middle Cornish play. The play focuses on a dispute between St Kea, patron of Kea parish in Cornwall, and Teudar, a local tyrant. In addition, a long section relates to King Arthur, Queen Guinevere's adultery with Arthur's nephew Modred, and Arthur's battle with Modred." "The play is an important contribution both to the lexicon and the literature of Middle Cornish. It also provides fascinating new evidence for the cult of St Kea."--Jacket
