SIR KYFFIN WILLIAMS RA oil on canvas - head and shoulders portrait of an eight year old Argentine child, entitled verso `Norma Lopez`, and dated 1986, signed with initials, 60 x 59cms¦Auctioneer`s Note: Norma Lopez of Trevelin in Patagonia is possibly Sir Kyffin`s most iconic sitters. His sketched portrait of her became a hugely popular print and is symbolic of his 1968/69 trip to Y Wladfa (the Welsh colony). Norma, who was about 8 years old, loved to tease the artist and enjoyed sitting for her portrait and Sir Kyffin painted and sketched her on paper multiple times. An oil painting of Norma Lopez has never to our knowledge, been at auction prior to this (see `Portraits` by Sir Kyffin Williams, Gomer Press)¦Provenance: private collection Hertfordshire
