About the Artist

Jack Butler Yeats 1871–1957

Irish painter Jack B. Yeats was born in London and grew up in Sligo with his maternal grandparents before returning to London in 1887 to live with his parents. He briefly attended the Government School of Design and the Westminster School of Art and went onto work as an illustrator for sporting periodicals and newspapers. A visit to the West of Ireland in 1898 inspired his first solo exhibition 'Sketches of Life in the West of Ireland'. It would remain his theme for much of his artistic career.
