Lougher from Penclawdd

MORRIS, Sir Cedric (1889 - 1982)

Lougher from Penclawdd

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 60 x 73 cm

Acquired: 2008; assistance from the Derek Williams Trust

Accession Number: NMW A 29356

The semi-rural fringes of Swansea in the foreground of the painting contrast starkly with the chimneys and smoke of industrial Wales in the background.  It is a generalised depiction of the Llanelli shoreline from Penclacwydd.  Loughor, in the title, is in fact not visible in the painting.  Cedric Morris was born in Sketty, Swansea and would have known the surrounding landscape well.
