The Artist - Robert Evans-Hughes 1961

10 mins Wales

A fellow inhabitant of Rhyl films the artist Robert Evans-Hughes starting work in his studio early one morning and smoking a pipe when he takes a break. Robert [Bob] was born in Llanrwst but emigrated to Australia when young. Seriously injured whilst serving with the Australian army in WWI, he turned to art, studying in Rome and London before returning to Wales and settling in Rhyl where he founded several artists groups and became president of Denbighshire Art Society.

National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales preserves and celebrates the sound and moving image heritage of Wales, making it accessible to a wide range of users for enjoyment and learning. Its film collection reflects every aspect of the nation’s social, cultural and working life across the 20th century, giving a fascinating insight into Welsh filmmaking, both amateur and professional
