A pocket-size volume presenting a selection of over 30 paintings by the Haverfordwest born artist Gwen John (1876-1939) and two portraits of her by her brother, Augustus John (1878-1961), including notes on each drawing and a biographical summary.

The work of Gwen has recently been re-evaluated and become increasingly popular, where previously her work was over-shadowed by her more famous and longer living Brother. A beautiful, selection of that gives a flavour of a woman whose life was as intriguing as her art.
