About the Artist

Cecil King 1921–1986

Self-taught Irish artist Cecil King was a successful businessman, who began to paint in his mid-30s. Initially King painted in a semi-realist style. From the late 1960s figurative elements in his work were replaced by plain fields of colour and geometric forms. King was a founding organiser of Rosc. He was the subject of a major retrospective at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in 1981, and a solo exhibition at IMMA in 2008. King’s work is held in numerous public and private collections.
