Over the centuries, the leading painters of Europe have been drawn repeatedly to Venezia--Venice. The Welsh artist Kyffin Williams was one of them.
More familiar with the sea off the coast of Anglesey and the mountains of Eryri, he was overwhelmed by the "opulence and sumptuousness and elegance" of the city, by the magnificent pearly light and the ever present water.
`Drawn to the Light` leads us away from the landscapes of Anglesey, the home of Sir Kyffin, to those of Venice. In both of these very different worlds Kyffin was fascinated by reflected light on water.
