The Paintings of Ivor John Powell

The vision of a border Welshman

Descriptive catalogue - summary list

The descriptive catalogue presented here comprises a total of 65 works. A small number of Ivor’s pictures were not available for inclusion here. Compositions known to have been completed by him include the following:

A small study of Winifred’s parental home, which was one of his first paintings,
One or more seascapes, of the Needles and Isle of Wight, which resulted from his New Forest holidays,
A picture with the title Three Horses, exhibited in 1973,
A picture with the title Birds, Winter Scene, and another, The Sunflower, exhibited in 1976, (In the same exhibition he also showed Horse in Field and Canal Bank, the title of which suggests that it was a canal study additional to those in the National Library collection.),
A third hunting scene owned by a European collector.

Since Ivor kept no record of his paintings or their destinations, it is possible that there are other compositions but, given his normal rate of production, they are not likely to be large in number.
