Irish artist Mainie Jellett studied under Walter Sickert at the Westminster School of Art, London, and with André Lhote and Albert Gleizes in Paris. Jellett first exhibited her non-figurative work in Ireland in 1922. She received much criticism but continued to act as an advocate for abstraction and in 1943 was central to the establishment of the Irish Exhibition of Living Art. She is now considered a leader of Irish Modernism. Jellet's work featured in IMMA’s 2013 ‘Analysing Cubism’ exhibition.View Artist
