STAN JONES WATERCOLOURS


Monday 11 May 2020 - Saturday 23 May 2020

A Retrospective Exhibition of the work of Welsh Watercolour Artist Stan Jones

Stanley Owen Jones (1930–2012) was a Welsh watercolour artist who was inspired by the natural world and in particular by references to nature in Dylan Thomas’ poetry; he often painted images of plant life, and the sun.
A number sketches and paintings (76 in total) were acquired in 2014 by the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, known as the Bequest Collection. The curator of the National Library of Wales, Lona Mason, said about this collection:
“The National Library of Wales collects art of notable importance created by artists who have contributed significantly to art in Wales: it was therefore important that the Library acquired works by Stan Jones, not only are the works preserved for future generations, they are also available for people to explore and enjoy.”
