  • 🖌️ Celebrating Christopher Williams Birthday 🖌️

🖼️ Family on Barmouth Island 🖼️

Christopher Williams enjoyed taking his family on holiday to North Wales, especially in the Barmouth area, which gave him plenty of opportunities to paint coastal scenes as well as the impressive mountainous landscapes. 

This painting, ‘Family at Barmouth Island’, shows a more informal and colourful style than the official portrait paintings which Christopher Williams was famous for at the time. The painting can now be found in the Glynn Vivian Art Centre in Swansea.
