JOHN CYRLAS WILLIAMS - 'A BRIEF FLOWERING'

John Cyrlas Williams (1902-1965) was once described as one of Wales’ most promising young painters. Recently 150 lost paintings by Williams were discovered in a Porthcawl attic. 

In a landmark show, art historian Peter Lord and KSG artist Peter Rossiter curate a selection of these paintings in the Chate Room, KSG.

“These paintings are very, very good and they make up a fascinating piece of art history,” says Lord.

The Show runs until 30th August.
