Jonah Jones

Just opened at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff is an exhibition of work by Jonah Jones.  Details can be found here. There's an interesting little piece on the BBC website, here. I'm slightly baffled by the Museum not approaching me or my sisters for examples of his work (I think we have five or six between us, most of which featured in a big retrospective in Mold some years ago).  Still, there is certainly plenty of other work to look at.  If you want to know more about the relationship between my father and Jonah, you might find something in my preface to Jonah's 'Gregynog Journals', which you can find on the right hand side of this here blog.  Peter Jones, Jonah's son, has written an excellent biography of his father, published by Seren earlier this year.  Details here.
