Portrait commission for the National Museum of Wales Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Cymru

September 21, 2021

In 2018 I was commissioned to paint a portrait of the out going President of Amgueddfa
Genedlaethol Cymru National Museum Wales, Elisabeth Elias.

The first female President of the Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Cymru National Museum Wales. The portrait presents Elisabeth in a behind the scenes view of Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd National
Museum Cardiff, where the portrait is set. Elizabeth poses in the conservation studio with easels either side of her displaying two other portraits- one of Lady Countess Rhondda and the other of Agatha Christie by Oskar Kokoschka. In the centenary of the suffragette movement it seemed a fitting setting to portray Elisabeth.

It was wonderful opportunity to meet and paint Elisabeth, and a real honour to have the final portrait displayed in Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Cymru National Museum Wales collection. Diolch yn fawr iawn Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Cymru!
