Ceri Richards
(b Dunvant, nr. Swansea, 6 June 1903; d London, 9 Nov. 1971). British painter, printmaker, designer, and maker of reliefs, born into a Welsh-speaking family. From 1924 he spent most of his life in London, but he remained close to his Welsh roots. His output was many-sided, and Sir John Rothenstein writes that ‘Richards's work is widely admired but there is little consensus of opinion about its essential character.
