I recently bought 2 pictures which I believe were painted by Ron Francis but cannot be sure.I would welcome any information regarding Mr Francis.Is He still alive does he still live in Abertillery. The 2 pictures that I believe he painted are both caricatures and were painted in water colours. I know that the title of one of his paintings was Saints and Sinners which was based on a local village scene depicting men and women gossiping. Another picture was a caricature depicting men playing rugby. Both of these paintings would most probably have been displayed in local rugby clubs or working mens clubs. I would love to hear from anybody who remembers these paintings and who could confirm that these pictures were indeed painted by Ron Francis. I also would like to know of any other paintings he might have painted.I also believe that he might have worked for the bbc as a artist/ cartoonist in the 50s and 60s.Any information would be welcome

Ron's family were neighbors of my grandparents on Bennett St. in Blaina ('60s & '70s). Ron's son, Roger, is still in the area. Happy to pass on your email if you'd like. (I'm in USA) _________________ SHK
Ron was my art teacher at Bryngwyn school. I posted on the forum about him before and learned that he had passed away some years ago.
He was by far the best teacher at the school and I learned a lot from him and as already been said he was a very nice man.
