Gwilym Prichard

Born in Llanystumdwy, near Criccieth, in 1931, Gwilym Prichard became one of Wales’ most fondly admired and respected artists. His dramatic and colourful landscape paintings of North Wales and the Pembrokeshire coastline, often painted using a palette-knife, are reminiscent of his great friend, the late Sir Kyffin Williams’, work. Indeed, Gwilym has often been described, with more than a hint of truth, as ‘Kyffin with colour’. Whether he was painting Cader Idris bathed in sunlight, or Tenby harbour on a summer’s evening, these glowing paintings communicated his love of the Welsh landscape with vision and integrity
