A Visit to the Kyffin Williams Exhibition
‘Behind the Frame’
 
at the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth




The National Library of Wales had a long and fruitful relationship with the late Sir Kyffin Williams KBE, RA, RCA  who  is widely regarded as one of the defining artists of the 20th century, especially in his native Wales. To mark the 100th anniversary of his birth, the National Library has brought together a comprehensive collection of Kyffin’s works including iconic impasto landscapes, dynamic portraiture and his preparatory drawings and sketchbooks.

This important exhibition is to date the largest and most comprehensive collection of Kyffin’s compositions. The exhibition takes place in the prestigious Gregynog Gallery and contains paintings, previously unseen, from private collections. The visit will include a presentation in the DRWM multi-media auditorium and a guided tour of the exhibition.

The National Library of Wales is the national legal depository with stores of literary treasures from Britain and Ireland and this visit will also provide an opportunity to explore some of these.
