On Paper

19.07.21 - 12.02.21

The term 'work on paper' is very broad, embracing everything from oil paintings to linocut prints and scraps of paper decorated with doodles. What they all have in common is that they have been created on paper, and more often than not, celebrate this versatile material.  Seen here are watercolours, prints, collages, sketches and paintings by some of Wales' most prominent artists.  

With topics ranging from explorations of political activism, racism and refugee life alongside more traditional themes such as the human form and the natural world, this exhibition offers an insight into the diversity and richness of the works on paper within the The National Library of Wales’ collections.
