PROVENANCE: Gifted by the artist to Jonah Jones, 1950s Thence by family descent
Best known for his work as a sculptor and a designer of stained glass, Jonah Jones and Williams were both part of a small and closely knit group of artists and poets working in North Wales after the war, taking the dramatic surroundings as their inspiration, with others including John Petts and Brenda Chamberlain. The present lot formed part of a trade between Williams and Judith Maro Jones, wife of Jonah, which saw the work picked from a selection of paintings from the artist's London studio and exchanged for a hand woven rug.
