Will Roberts

One of the greatest Welsh painters of the 20th century, Will Roberts has left a remarkable body of work depicting scenes reflecting domestic, pastoral and industrial life in the Principality. He was born in Ruabon, Denbighshire, in 1907, the son of a railwayman. The family moved to Neath in 1918 and Roberts never moved away apart from war service. He went to Swansea School of Art in 1928, on a scholarship as a part-time student. From that time he continued to paint and draw continuously until a few weeks before his death.
