[edit] Information

Huw Stephens explores Wales' cultural history.

[edit] Chapter 1:

Huw begins on Anglesey where he steps inside a prehistoric burial chamber to witness Welsh art in its earliest form. He also views an exquisite example of Bronze Age artistry in the shape of a gold cape, found by chance in a field in north Wales and now one of the prize exhibits in the British Museum.

[edit] Chapter 2:

Huw explores how, from the 18th-century, the dramatic landscape of Wales captivated artists like Richard Wilson and JMW Turner, who painted it in ways that changed the course of art history. Huw also discovers the work of Penry Williams, a Merthyr Tydfil artist who was commissioned to paint his home town's vast Cyfarthfa ironworks.

[edit] Chapter 3:

Huw Stephens reveals how, as the 20th century dawned, artists found radical new ways to depict Wales, pushing themselves to extremes and redefining what art could be. His venture takes him to the National Museum Wales in Cardiff, Bardsey Island off the Llyn Peninsula, Colwyn Bay and Swansea.
