#LoveArt – Elin Jones

On International Women’s Day, Politician Elin Jones has chosen Bro by Mary Lloyd Jones as one of her favourite works of art for #LoveArt campaign.

Elin Jones said:

“Mary Lloyd Jones’s work for me is a statement of colour. She is a widely acclaimed artist, but rooted in her community. Her work reflects perfectly the diversity that belongs to each landscape, each Vale. Her painting Bro which is The National Library’s collection characterizes those features perfectly as her best work. In the deep and strong colours you feel the power of her subject reflected in the painting Bro. For me, Mary Lloyd Jones is one of the great artists of our nation. She is an ambassador for her art and especially therefore to those who are Welsh and who are women.”
