2018 marks 100 years since the birth of John Kyffin Williams (1918 – 2006), arguably Wales’ most popular and prolific landscape painter of the twentieth century. Born in Llangefni, Williams’ career spanned more than sixty years. His personal, distinctive style focused on the rural landscape of Snowdonia, its cottages and hill farmers.

Williams had a long history with Amgueddfa Cymru, both as an artist, and as a member of its art committee for many years from the early 1960s. This display explores that relationship through artwork and archival material.
