Rhedeg i Ffwrdd gyda'r Torrwr Gwallt [Running Away with the Hairdresser]

SINNOTT, Kevin (1947 - )

Bwrw Bant gyda'r Fenyw Trin Gwallt

Dyddiad: 1995

Cyfrwng: olew ar gynfas

Maint: 160.0 x 216.0 cm

Derbyniwyd: 1996; Prynwyd; gyda chefnogaeth Cronfa Knapping

Rhif Derbynoli: NMW A 3993

Ganed yr arlunydd yng Nghymru a bu'n astudio yng Nghaerdydd, Caerloyw a Llundain cyn dod yn ôl i fyw ym Mhen-y-bont ar Ogwr. Mae ei luniau'n ymwneud â'r cof, emosiwn a phrofiad yn hytrach nag â digwyddiadau penodol. I ddechrau, gwnaeth lun tywyllach, hanner hyd, o ddyn ar ei ben ei hun, a'r thema waelodol oedd 'gadael eich gorffennol ar ôl'. Mewn gwrthgyferbyniad â'r syniad hwn, sy'n 'ddifrifol, neu hyd yn oed yn rhodresgar', mae'r arlunydd o'r farn fod Rhedeg i Ffwrdd gyda'r Torrwr Gwallt yn cyfleu teimlad o 'ymgollwng am eiliad i fod yn anghyfrifol... amheuaeth aeddfed o syniadau mawreddog ieuenctid'.

Perhaps twenty years ago I visited the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff and saw this painting.
I have been back there nine times to see it again and it has not been on display.
Of all the paintings in the collection, surely this must be the nations favourite, and yet it is not displayed .....
I am at a loss to imagine why this is the case?
Please let me know when I might see it again.
Many thanks

Running away with the hairdresser is my favourite painting but in all the years I've been going to the museum I've never seen it.When can I see it?

Hi there Glenys,

Thanks for your comment - I often ask this question too! Maybe the mystery is part of what makes the painting so special.

Best,

I love this painting. Bought a copy from the Cardiff Museum a few years ago. One thing which is on my mind is "Who is the Hairdresser, the man or the woman ?"

Visited with my brother in law for the Diane Arbus exhibition. Found him sitting in front of this painting. Had no idea he was terminally ill at the time. So glad we were able to share that with him.

With all the exquisite art in the National Museum of Wales this stopped me in my tracks and my 17 year old son! Thank you. Beautiful.
