imageThis book is filled with images from Oriel Ynys Môn's own collection.

As well as recording the beauty that still remains, the images also provide a valuable record of aspects of Anglesey life that have vanished in recent years.

To Kyffin they were essential reference material for the oil paintings he made back in the studio. To the public, they afford the pleasure of viewing Anglesey afresh through the eyes of a distinguished artist. In addition to the drawings are a number of oil paintings, some of them considered to be amongst his very best work.

This book is for sale in the Jac Do Shop - price £7.95
