Arthur Giardelli

Black and white archive film recording of Arthur Giardelli and friends with commentary regarding the '56 Group; colour video (present-day) shot of 'Winter Sea' (collage) by Arthur Giardelli; and 1966 black and white footage of Giardelli collecting driftwood and talking about gaining inspiration from the European modern art movement on a visit he made to Holland when he saw the work of Mondrian.

Ceri Richards was still a huge influence, as was the Cardiff School of Art and the Rhondda group, and all over Wales artists such as Kyffin Williams, John Elwyn and Brenda Chamberlain were finding new ways of capturing their Wales.
