(Approx $44.80 or €33.60)
This volume contains all the paintings in oil, tempera or acrylic held at The National Library of Wales. The collection encompasses every aspect of Welsh life: famous individuals, places and historical towns. Here will be found some of Wales’s treasures, showing that this is a truly national collection. The Public Catalogue Foundation have produced 5 Welsh volumes, three regional catalogues and two dedicated to the holdings of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales and Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru / The National Library of Wales, respectively.
The Public Catalogue Foundation is a charity passionate about making art accessible to the public and educational research. Between 2003 and 2012, they digitised all 210,000 oil paintings in public ownership around the United Kingdom (80% of which are not on view), resulting in this series of affordable catalogues and an online database. They are currently working to digitise the nation’s public sculpture collection.
