Kyffin Williams by Nick Sinclair( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kyffin Williams is the central figure in contemporary Welsh painting and this book examines the full range of his work from the mid-1940s to the present day." "From the outset of his career, Kyffin Williams took both the landscape and the people of North Wales as his subjects, and he has 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 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 interprets the world around him."--BOOK JACKET
