‘Kyffin Williams: the artist as Time-Lord’

The arts writer and critic Rian Evans knew Kyffin Williams well, and she has written extensively about him. In a new book, Kyffin Williams : The Light and the Dark, published to mark the artist’s centenary, Rian examines the way in which Kyffin’s passionate commitment to painting was matched by his vibrant interest in Welsh history and heritage. In this illustrated lecture, Rian Evans will look at how his insatiable curiosity about past and present - European and Welsh - fed into the art which was to achieve iconic status.
