Tribute paid to artist Andrew Vicari

A Port Talbot-born artist, who painted some of the world's most famous people and was once Britain's 18th richest person, has died, aged 84.

Andrew Vicari became known as "the king of painters and painter of kings" after being commissioned to paint heads of state and Arabic royalty.

He had a fortune of £92m and owned properties in Cannes and Monte Carlo.

Mr Vicari died at Swansea' Morriston Hospital on Monday after a period of ill health.

Here, his nephew Julian Vaccari pays tribute to him.
