Talk by Arthur Giardelli
'Writers on modern art speak of an international Style practised in San Francisco, Paris, Tokyo, and Milan. It is said in praise of Welsh painters that it is this style that we find in their work rather than "some spurious Welshness." For my part I relish the Chinese element in Zao Wou-ki, the Spanish in Tapies, and the Welshness of Ceri Richards.'
