Kyffin Williams, RA, the noted Welsh landscape painter, worked with the Gregynog Press in Newtown, Wales on many occasions. He left them 6 original linocuts in his will so that they could produce an edition of prints after his death. As they were printed after his death, they were made on special handmade paper with the Gregynog device as a watermark in two corners in place of a signature. The prints are 'Venice', 'Rhosgadfan', 'Welsh Blacks', 'Villages of Carmel and Cesarea', 'The Farmer, His Dog and His Cottage' and 'Hunting the Fox'. Most of these prints have sold out and and the portfolios are impossible to find.
