Northern Irish sculptor F.E. McWilliam attended the Belfast College of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art, London. At first influenced by primitive art, McWilliam’s figurative sculpture in a range of media became increasingly surrealist from the late 1930s. McWilliam exhibited extensively and completed many public commissions from the 1950s. He also taught sculpture at Chelsea School of Art and the Slade School. His work is represented in major public collections, including MoMA and Tate.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, in line with current government restrictions, IMMA’s galleries will close from 24 December until further notice. All tickets purchased for Paula Rego, Obedience and Defiance exhibition will be refunded over the next two weeks. We appreciate your patience during this time.
