Celf drwy lygad craff. An Art-Accustomed Eye: John Gibbs and art appreciation in Wales 1945-1996

£14.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition. The front cover shows slight marks and the bottom of the spine has been twisted and has a slight tear of the top plastic. Inside all the pages are clean, tight and unmarked. The book displays high quality photographs of paintings, drawings, statues as well as photographs. 
Collecting and promoting art was at the heart of John Gibb's life although his friends and colleagues knew little of the extent of his activities, and the wider art world knew even less. He and his wife Sheila challenged our concept of collecting, acquiring works for public and educational institutions as well as for their own family, including the youngest children. This book reveals for the first time how they created one of the first confident collections of contemporary Welsh art, and demonstrated the value of modern art in the Christian faith. The collections they created include works by Ceri Richards, Lucian Freud and Paul Nash, all acquired to help us appreciate the power of art.

Oxfam Books & Music Beeston

The Beeston books and music shop is situated near to Nottingham University, close to the city of Nottingham. There is a train station nearby. We offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, academic books, and rare or collectable items. There is a wide variety of music, including sheet music and a good selection of high quality classical, rock and pop vinyl. The volunteer team is a diverse mix from the local community, and University. We are currently recruiting for a quality control volunteer. We always welcome good quality, saleable donations which can be delivered to our rear entrance.
