During the First World War Conor was commissioned by the British government to complete portraits of soldiers and munitions workers. Working primarily in watercolour and wax crayon, his predominant subjects were the working classes in Ulster. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy, London, and the Royal Hibernian Academy which he joined in 1946. His work is represented in major public collections.View Artist
