Paintings of Wales
Bovil House, Machen (12)
South Wales


6 Jan 2018 - This painting has shown up in Mississippi, USA. A lady out there bought it in an antique shop some years ago and decided to research 'R G Roberts' and there I was in her search. we'll see how this plays out - with the intention of bringing it back. Well done to her.
End of update

Bovil House was the home of Sir Alfred Nicholas C.B.E. - founder of South Wales Switchgear in Pontllanfraith. I produced this painting in 1979, soon afterwards it was demolished. The painting was bought by Sir alfred and I hope it has been kept by his family.
This painting came about through the Bargoed and district art Society spending an evening sketching in the grounds of the house. On completion, the painting was bought for Sir Alfred Nicholas who later sent me a thank you letter. He invited me down to Bovil house one afternoon to talk about it and I mentioned that I had a 5 year apprenticeship (1967-1972) with South Wales Switchgear of which he was founder. We had a good chat on that subject - pleasant memories.

Here is the letter I received from Sir Alfred Nicholas - owner of Bovil House.
