Evan Walters Moments of Vision

Evan Walters (1893-1951) is perhaps the great hidden secret of Welsh painting in the twentieth century, an outstanding artist known for a wide variety of subjects- landscapes, portraits ranging from miners to politicians- painted in an even wider variety of styles, including his distinctive 'double vision' work.

Moments of Vision  presents for the first time, a generous selection of colour reproductions of his paintings, accompanied by a biographical note. However, the bulk of the book is taken up by a host of responses to Walters' work by leading artists and writers including Shani Rhys James, Iwan Bala, Jan Morris, Tim Davies, Mary Lloyd Jones, Twm Morys, Rowan Williams, Dannie Abse, Wynn Thomas, Nigel Jenkins, Prys Morgan, Peter Stead, Karen Ingham, Aneurin Jones, Glenys Cour, Trevor Fishlock, Jon Gower, John Barnie, Mel Gooding and Peter Finch. The result peels away the layers from both his respondents, and becomes a fascinating commentary on creativity and inspiration.
