Born in Llangefni in Anglesey, Williams studied at the Slade. During his youth he thoroughly explored the mountains of North Wales, later recalling: 'When I became a painter I knew the other side of those mountains I was painting'. A Royal Academician, he is Wales's most distinguished living landscape painter. This view is south-east from the pass of Aberglaslyn near Beddgelert towards the Moelwyn mountains near Ffestiniog in Gwynedd.
