Cadwai rhieni Alfred Janes siop ffrwythau a blodau yn Abertawe, a bu'n hyfforddi yn yr Ysgol Gelf yno ac yn Ysgolion yr Academi Frenhinol. Roedd yn gyfaill i Dylan Thomas, ac yn un o'r cylch oedd yn mynychu'r Kardomah Café, Abertawe. Peintiwyd y darlun hwn yn Ffordd Coleherne ym 1934 ac fe'i prynwyd gan yr amgueddfa yn ystod y flwyddyn ganlynol. Yn ystod y cyfnod hwn defnyddiai Janes y dechneg o wneud toriad llinellol yn arwynebedd y llun gyda chyllell boced i roi mwy o ffurfioldeb i'r peintiad, a gwneud yr wyneb yn fwy amlwg.

Hello,
After 12 years of long research I am just putting the finishing touches to a very large illustrated book titled "The Road to Glenlough" detailing the history of this isolated yet monumental valley in south - west Donegal. The Welsh poet spent a summer in that splendid isolation in the summer of 1935 and three chapters in the book detail his association with Glenlough.
Just before he left for Ireland, artist and flatmate Freed Janes did a celebrated portrait of the poet which is now in your collection. For obvious reasons I would love to have a copy of the painting for my book and permission to use it. I would of course pay a fee if it was reasonable but given that the book will have a print run of less than 1000 and have many hundreds of images, I hope we can work something out as it is an image that I would love to use.
Regards
Christy
