Thomas Jones, Pencerrig 1743 – 1803

Thomas Jones was born in Trefonnen, Llandrindod Wells, Radnorshire.
Thomas Jones was a pupil of the renowned Richard Wilson, Machynlleth and was a prominent commentator in the art world. He painted in Italy. In 1954 his oil paintings of Radnorshire appeared on the art market. I love his paintings and sketches e.g rocket pools near Pen Cerrig, Carnedde mountains, paintings of cattle, fields and trees.
I am particularly interested in his work as I lived for a while in Llandrindod Wells and saw the views he painted as I wandered his hometown, Radnorshire.
Italy and Radnorshire
Thomas Jones worked and lived in beautiful places. In his work you’ll feel tranquility and silence – you’ll be amazed with his work. And the colours of his paintings? There is no better contrast between the linen walls of the Napoli buildings and the green fields and trees of Pencerrig estate, Radnorshire.
