Tegwen Morris, National Director of Merched y Wawr takes part in our #LoveArt Campaign. She has chosen Lady Megan Lloyd George by Henry Lamb, 1952 as her second choice.
Paintings of women are rare compared to paintings of men. This painting is lovely, with Dame Megan Lloyd George sitting relaxed and dignified on a comfortable chair. She has a lovely blue dress and a beautiful broach which reminds me of one of the Merched y Wawr “Ategolion at y Galon” collections. It’s astonishing to think that Megan Lloyd George died in 1966, a year before Merched y Wawr was established, I can imagine that she would of been a member had she lived longer.
