The introductory essay, while providing a brief background to the artists development, concerns itself primarily with the paintings that influenced Kyffin Williams. This is no mere assumption, but is backed by Williams own words, and if that were not enough, one has only to look at the works concerned and one can instantly identify the influence. There is a brief concluding essay entitled Defining Horizons which considers the boundaries that define Williams work. The book concludes with a Further Reading list and a short Index.
The main section of the book, pages 31 to 125, is devoted to William's work. There are about 95 of the artist's works reproduced here, all in colour, along with a further dozen or more photographic portraits of Williams, or reproductions of the work of other artists who influenced him. The quality of the illustrations is very good, often revealing the texture of the palette knife. The range of the works included is broad, and includes many sketches a well as finished paintings, and a lino cut.
This is a well produced book which provides a good overview of the artist and his work.
