Arddangosfa / Exhibition: Yr Olygfa o'r Bryn / The View from the Hill

The View from the Hill

Mae Yr Olygfa o'r Bryn yn arddangosfa o ddyfrlliwiau gan Frances Hawkins, y mae'r rhan fwyaf ohonynt yn dod o gasgliad sy'n cael ei gadw gan Amgueddfa ac Oriel Gelf Casnewydd. Roedd Hawkins yn wraig i ficer Eglwys Gwynllyw ac roedd hi'n paentio'r dirwedd leol, led-wledig a oedd mor gyfarwydd iddi yn ystod degawdau canol y bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg. Mae ei chelf yn darlunio bywyd o arwahanrwydd cymdeithasol, ac yn rhoi ymdeimlad beidio bod chysylltiad 'r newidiadau tyngedfennol yr oedd y chwyldro diwydiannol yn eu creu yn ne Cymru'r adeg honno.

The View from the Hill is an exhibition of watercolours by Frances Hawkins, the majority of which are from a collection held by Newport Museum and Art Gallery. Hawkins was the wife of the Vicar of St. Woolos, and she painted the semi-rural, local landscape that she knew so well during the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Her art depicts a life of social exclusivity, and provides a sense of detachment from the momentous changes that industrialisation was rapidly imposing on South Wales during this period.
