Kyffin Williams is the culmination of four years of research at two centres for Kyffin Williams’s art, the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, and Oriel Mon, Anglesey. Dr. Qing Chao Ma’s illuminating new study incorporates Kyffin Williams’s full range; his inspirational landscapes and seascapes in oil, his delicate watercolours, his distinctive lino cuts, and his mesmeric portraits.
With her particular expertise, Dr Ma also draws comparisons between the work of Williams and Chinese art, linking him to other artistic traditions and establishing his rightful place in the worldwide art community. Combined with a rigorous biographical account on the life which informed the work and a rich variety of illustrations, Kyffin Williams is an invaluable contribution to the study and appreciation of one of Wales’s foremost artists.
Dr Qing Chao Ma is a professional artist and former art lecturer at the Xi'an Academy of Fine Art, China.
