The Davies' Sisters: Cardiff Collection XK12905

Course Details

Enrol Now

The Davies sisters, Gwendoline and Margaret, were the grandchildren of David Davies of Llandinam in mid-Wales, an industrialist who made his fortune through the heavy industries of mining and transport. When their father, Edward, died at a young age, they inherited a fortune, and each became a millionaire in her own right. These remarkable sisters were artistic and creative, and with the help and guidance from their governess’ brother, Hugh Blaker, they began to collect the new and exciting art works being produced in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Europe. These works became the most influential collection of Modern Art to be housed in Wales.
You will study their collection, create a virtual gallery and work through the self-paced unit tasks with tutorial guidance.
