The physical cataloguing (i.e. the arranging and describing) of all material has now been completed, comprising Kyffin’s own works of art, his extensive collection of art by others, and his archives, including his correspondence, diaries and photographs. The descriptions will be released into the Library’s main catalogue in the near future, enabling all those interested in the artist to access the catalogue remotely whenever they like. When copyright issues have been resolved, digital images of artworks and some of the artist’s personal papers will also be available on-line, alongside the catalogue descriptions.
Working on this large and varied project has been a real privilege for all concerned and hopefully the end result will enable anyone interested in the artist, including researchers, individuals, school and college students, to gain a greater understanding of the life and work of one of Wales’s most renowned artists of the twentieth century.
The team wish to thank all those who have regularly followed the progress of the project on the blog and everybody who has commented on the posts, whether on-line or otherwise.
Future posts on Kyffin Williams
The completion of the cataloguing and digitising processes marks the end of the bequest project. As such the Kyffin Blog, which was set up to provide updates relating to various aspects of the project will cease to post information. However, this isn’t the end of the Kyffin story, and any future news or information relating to the artist, his works of art or papers will be posted on the Library’s main blog.
