Following studies at the Slade and a teaching post as Senior Art Master at Highgate School, Kyffin Williams returned to his native north Wales and settled in a house on Anglesey overlooking the Menai Straits. Here he immersed himself in the local community and painted the landscape and its people with ever increasing success. He was generous in his support of other artists and, as a senior Royal Academician, was awarded an OBE for services to the Arts.
Farmer in the Wood is a powerful example of his work with rich impasto, broadly applied by palette knife and loaded brush.
