This special display by the distinguished Irish artist Louis le Brocquy is being shown to celebrate the artist’s 90th year. It presents seven emblematic works selected by Pierre le Brocquy. The works represent the artist’s Grey Period and also his Presence, Procession and Human Image series and together constitute an excellent representation of his lifelong concerns and achievements as an artist.
