Join us today, Saturday 27 October at 2pm for the opening of this exhibition.
Arddangosfa wedi'i drefnu gyda'r ystâd Roger Cecil a Peter Wakelin awdur y Llyfr 'A Secret Artist' - An exhibition organised with the Roger Cecil estate and Peter Wakelin author of the book 'A Secret Artist'.
Roger Cecil (1942-2015) has been described as one of the great abstract artists of his generation, yet in his lifetime he was hardly known outside a circle of fellow painters. He was content to paint for himself, protecting his privacy and exhibiting rarely. If he did show his work, collectors rushed to acquire it. Among curators, he was a legendary figure.
At art college in the early 1960s he was a star of his generation, but he walked out on a scholarship to the Royal College of Art and returned to practise on his own in the South Wales mining village and terraced house where he grew up. He devoted himself to painting, living simply and working as a casual labourer, opencast miner and art tutor while producing work of extraordinary beauty and sophistication. After his parents’ deaths the whole house became his studio.
