Three oil paintings by the late Welsh artist Sir Kyffin Williams are to be auctioned later this month, with each estimated to fetch in the region of £30,000.
The Welsh Sale auction, which will be held by Colwyn Bay auctioneers Rogers Jones & Co on 30 April, will feature many works by prominent Welsh artists including Will Roberts, David Griffiths, William Selwyn, John Elwyn, Ceri Richards, Iwan Bala and Mary Lloyd Jones among others.
One of the oil paintings by Sir Kyffin to be auctioned is a depiction of cottages at Cesarea in Caernarfonshire, with an estimate value of £28,000-35,000.
The painting has up until recently been in Devon, where it was displayed for 30 years by its previous owner Thomas Charles Hudson CBE at his farm in Mortonhampstead, Dartmoor. The painting was originally purchased from the Thackeray Gallery in London - where Sir Kyffin exhibited his work regularly from 1968.
