#LoveArt – Meri Huws

#LoveArt / Collections / News and Events - Posted 15-11-2017

Over the next four weeks Welsh Language Commissioner, Meri Huws will introduce her favourite art works from the Library’s collection as part of the #LoveArt Campaign.

She has chosen Gwilym Pritchard by Claudia Williams as her fourth choice.

Honesty and love

This week I have chosen an honest and loving portrait by Claudia Williams of her husband, Gwilym Pritchard.  In the portrait we see a handsome gentleman, with striking white hair sitting behind his easel.  Claudia has created many portraits of him since the early 60s and it’s interesting that there is one constant thread, which is her unequivocal love and respect for him.

Of course, Claudia is most renowned for her portraits of family or friends, mostly women, in day-to-day situations – the dining table, play ground, seaside, bedroom and more recently, hair salon.
