A Welsh Late 20th Century Landscape Painting 'Tan Y Castell' by Wilf Roberts.

With a rich impasto and organic colour palette you can see Wilf Roberts takes great inspiration from Sir Kyffin Williams – a fellow Welsh landscape painter. The cottages provide a fabulous focal point for the painting, bring the piece alive.

Wilf Roberts was born in 1941 on the Isle of Anglesey. In his early years he was raised in the idyllic setting of Mynydd Bodafon, a setting to which he returned after thirteen years of working as a teacher of art in Croydon. During the 1960s and 70s in London, he exhibited extensively and successfully whilst studying part-time at Croydon Art College. In 1973, Roberts returned to Anglesey and continued to paint. His inspiration comes from the stark and rocky landscape near his home.
