Description:
SIR KYFFIN WILLIAMS, KBE, RA (1918-2006) FARM, GARN FADRYN Signed twice with initials, wash and brushpoint en grisaille 35.5 x 54.5cm. Provenance: Cardiff, The Albany Gallery, July 1998, no.32 (where purchased by the vendor) * A handwritten letter from the artist to the vendor's late husband, dated 13.8.98, accompanies the lot. In it, Williams writes that \`Garn Fadryn is the highest of the hills of Llegu and the small village below it takes its name from it. I never found out the name of the farm I drew...it was on the southern slopes looking down to Cardigan Bay.\` Williams adds some reminiscences about Vivian Pitchforth and Edward Bawden and ends with this mild regret: \`Yes, I fear all my animals are self-portraits showing the same neurotic apprehension that I suffer from.\` ++ Good condition

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
SIR KYFFIN WILLIAMS RA early period inkwash - Gerlan chapel near Bethesda, Gwynedd with the village, telegraph poles and Pen-yr-Ole-Wen beyond, signed with initials, 46 x 55cms Provenance: to accompany the painting a typical handwritten letter being a lovely example of Sir Kyffin's irreverent humour, on Pwllfanogl' headed paper; the letter confirms the location of the composition and that the chapel at the time of writing was 'ruined', Sir Kyffin goes on to say 'There is a bench outside the chapel with 'Llandudno Junction' on it, put there presumably during the war to confuse the Germans. I write 'is' but i fear it should be 'was' as someone has nicked it. Maybe in the next war, it will find itself in front of a chapel in Tonypandy...' The vendor purchased the painting from Howard Roberts Gallery in circa 1969
