Portrait of an Artist
William Roos (1808–1878), born in Amlwch, was the most productive Welsh painter of the first threequarters of the nineteenth century. He travelled extensively, painting both well-known public figures and the prosperous middle class in Wales and the Welsh communities of London and Liverpool. This exhibition, the largest ever showing of his work, follows his fascinating story as an itinerant artist and highlights his most important portraits, equestrian paintings and landscapes.
This exhibition was made possible with a grant from the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund. The National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Oriel Môn Trust.
