About the Artist

Anne Madden b.1932

Irish artist Anne Madden spent her first years in Chile. Her family moved to Europe when she was four and lived in Ireland and London. She attended the Chelsea School of Arts and Crafts. In 1958 she married the Irish painter Louis le Brocquy. Madden’s semi-abstract work carries references to her Irish background as well as reflecting on life and death. She has exhibited widely, including a significant retrospective at IMMA in 2007 and a solo exhibition in 2023. She is a member of Aosdána.
