This famous English painter created a masterpiece in 1908 of one of the congregation of the chapel at the time, Sian Owen, an old lady who is wearing the Welsh national costume in the painting. Today, visitors can view the painting in the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight on the Wirral in England.
