Ffotograff o Jonah Jones mewn llyfr newydd ac ar Archif Celf Cymru arlein

Gwelir ffotograff cyfarwydd o Jonah Jones mewn llyfr newydd hynod o luniau gan Bernard Mitchell a gyhoeddwyd gan Parthian Press. Tynnwyd y ddelwedd ym 1997 yn swyddfa Cartŵn Cymru yn Llandaf. Teitl y llyfr yw Pieces of a Jigsaw: Portraits of Artists and Writers in Wales.

Ceir ffotograff arall gan Mitchell o Jonah gyda’i gorfiliast Leah a dynnwyd yn ystod yr un eisteddiad ar dudalen 244 o’r bywgraffiad Jonah Jones: An Artist’s Life (Peter Jones. Seren Books, 2011).

Dyma ddyfyniad o Archif Celf Cymru ar wefan Bernard Mitchell (bernardmitchell.co.uk/welsh-arts-archive/), ble lwythwyd y ffotograffau:

The Welsh Arts Archive is an ongoing project by photographer Bernard Mitchell to record a comprehensive list of notable characters within the Arts community in Wales.

In the past the documentation of the artists of Wales has been sadly neglected. This group of portraits is part of a much larger collection of photographs of the artists of Wales. The Welsh Arts Archive began in 1966 with a series of portraits of the Swansea friends of Dylan Thomas, including the artists Ceri Richards and Alfred Janes, the poet Vernon Watkins and the composer Daniel Jones

Since 1990 I have added many artists who have since passed away, including Will Roberts, Josef Herman, John Petts, Ivor Roberts Jones, John Elwyn, David Tinker and Ernest Zobole. The work continues with the artists working today.
