Artists / Photographers

This section of the website offers a glimpse into the lives of a selection of notable artists, engravers and photographers, whose portraits are represented in the Library’s Collections.

Artists and photographers described in this section include:

  • Ebenezer Morgan (1820-1906), one of the most well-established of the earliest photographers in Aberystwyth
  • Mervyn Levy (1914-1996), Swansea-born artist, writer and teacher, whose drawings of the poet Dylan Thomas can be found in the Portrait Collection
  • and William Roos (1808-1878), a popular portrait painter and mezzotint engraver, who produced portraits of notable Welsh men and women from the nineteenth century.

Each biographical piece is accompanied by a portrait from the Library’s Collection, completed by the artist in question. The collection as a whole will be available to search via the library catalogue in the near future.
