In this final part of his exploration of Welsh art in the 20th century, Kim Howells turns to the 1960s when the old rules of art were thrown out of the window. Ifor Davies was at the forefront of this revolution, attaching explosives to his paintings before blowing them up. Terry Setch was another artist who criticised consumer society - his large paintings inspired by the shoreline near Penarth were an early warning of our reliance on oil. Welsh identity and nationhood was another theme and is seen in different ways in the art of Iwan Bala and Tim Davies. Mary Lloyd Jones, Shani Rhys James and Sue Williams all made original, compelling work, proving that Welsh art is the equal of any in the world.
