As we celebrate this landmark exhibition we are delighted to host an exclusive preview for our valued Members.
Life above Everything, Lucian Freud and Jack B. Yeats examine the interconnections between renowned artist Lucian Freud and Jack B. Yeats; one of the most important figures in Irish art. This exhibition marks and excavates the affinities and interconnections between these two artists.
Irish painter Jack Butler Yeats was born in London and grew up in Sligo. He attended the Government School of Design and the Westminster School of Art. Yeats was elected a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1916. His painting ‘The Liffey Swim’ won a silver medal at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris. The broad fluid brushstrokes of that work mark the beginning of his expressive and experimental style. Yeats's work is held in numerous national collections including IMMA, the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Crawford Art Gallery.View Artist
