Yr olygfa hon o Lofa Six Bells, Abertyleri yn nyffryn yr Ebwy Fach yw un o weithiau mwyaf Lowry o ran maint. Bu Cymru yn destun i Lowry ddwywaith yn ei yrfa: yn ystod y 1920au, pan dreuliodd gyfnod yn y Rhyl, ac ar ddechrau'r 1960au pan anogwyd ef gan ei gyfaill a'i noddwr, Monty Bloom, i baentio cymoedd de Cymru. Magwyd Bloom yn y Rhondda, a chyneuodd yr ymweliadau hyn ddiddordeb o'r newydd yn Lowry mewn golygfeydd diwydiannol. Ysbrydolodd y cyfuniad anarferol o dirwedd arw'r Cymoedd a'r trefi poblog grw^p o baentiadau sydd ymhlith rhai o weithiau diweddaraf mwyaf ysbrydoledig yr arlunydd, er eu lleied. Mae'r rhain yn cynnwys golygfa banoramig debyg o Lynebwy, 1960, sydd yn Oriel Gelfyddyd ac Amgueddfa Herbert yn Coventry, a golygfa gyfoes o allt ger Abertyleri, sydd bellach yng nghasgliad y tate. Roedd Glofa Six Bells ddeuddeg milltir i'r gogledd o Gasnewydd, ac yma y digwyddodd trychineb lofaol waethaf y cyfnod wedi'r rhyfel yng Nghymru. Ar 28 Mehefin 1960, roedd ffrwydriad yn y pwll a chollodd 45 o bobl eu bywydau. Dyma oedd y pwll olaf i gau yn Abertyleri - bu ar waith rhwng 1898 a 1988.

Dear Sara,

I downloaded a file called "art Learning resource - historic art collections", the Lowry painting is mentioned on pages 5 and 6 in the "insight gallery" section.
We want to work on industrialization and coal mining, that's why we've decided to work on three paintings. We've chosen "the steelworks, Cardiff at night" by Walden, "a Welsh collier" by Walters and Lowry.
I've got two questions (sorry to ask them here but I sent two e-mails and haven't received any answers so far):
- Can you tell me if the paintings by Walden and Walters will be in the galleries on May 22nd?
- Do you know a painting that could "replace" Six Bells, Abertillery? I'm looking for something "easy" (at first glance) for teenagers, more naive than the other two?
Thank you for your answers.

Dear Anne-Claude,

I'm afraid that the image is no longer on display. Apologies for the misleading information on the information pack. So that I can update the pack, would you please mind telling me which resource you downloaded?

I've just printed your teaching material as I'm planning a visit with my school on May 22nd and this painting is supposed to be in the insight gallery. Can you tell me if we can see it on that particular date or will it be on loan? Thanks for your answer.

Dear Gill,
The Museum doese not own Lowry's Six Bells and it is still in artist’s copyright so we do not have the authority to issue a print. You could contact our Image Licensing Officer who may be able to obtain permission from the copyright holder to supply a print.

This painting is very important to our community. Why can't we get a print of it?
