Anne Madden, b.1932

Quadripartie Mountain Sequence Red1967

Many of the ‘poured’ works Madden created in the 1960s are diptychs, triptychs or other multi-panel formats. The titles of the works, as in this one, refer to landscape but rather than copying from nature, Madden seems to explore how it was formed, outlining the capricious nature of geological formations, and considering the effect of light, time and experience on them.

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 work, abstract at first glance, but generally with a figurative element, regularly 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. She is a member of Aosdána.
