Kyffin Williams RA (1918-2006) was a key figure in contemporary Welsh painting. Throughout his career the landscape and people of North Wales continued to provide the inspiration for his work. This beautifully produced monograph features rarely-seen works chosen by the artist from private collections. In his authoritative introductory essay, Ian Jeffrey - one of Britain's leading art historians - gives the reader an insightful view into Williams's world. New photography by Nicholas Sinclair offers a glimpse into the artist's studio - revealing his working methods - while his essay explores the artistic influences on this important Welsh artist.
