Abstract

The backdrop to the formation of the Museum's world-famous art collection. A beautiful exploration of how two fascinating sisters used immense wealth created by the Industrial Revolution in Wales, deep religious conscience and 'things of beauty' to transform the cultural life of Wales. Accompanies the major centenary exhibition at National Museum Cardiff. Cefndir casgliad celf byd-enwog Amgueddfa Cymru. Hanes chwiorydd Gregynog yn defnyddio'r cyfoeth a grëwyd gan y Chwyldro Diwydiannol yng Nghymru a'u cydwybod crefyddol i drawsnewid bywyd diwylliannol Cymru. Mae'r llyfr yn cyd-fynd â'r arddangosfa bwysig sy'n dathlu canmlwyddiant yr Amgueddfa yn Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd.
