Despite being born in England, C. Ivor Williams (1908 – 1982) is regarded as a Welsh artist.

In later years he devoted much of his time working on large religious subjects: The Healing of the Sick of the Palsy (1951–4) , The Leaping Beggar (1960–61), The Raising of Lazarus (1967–9) and The Return of the Prodigal Son.

For a detailed commentary on The Healing of the Sick of the Palsy, see Robert Meyrick at The University of Aberystwyth website

Some people may recognise the painting from when it was exhibited at St Martin in the Fields in London.
