Louis le Brocquy

Louis le Brocquy is one of the great modern Irish painters. Born in Dublin in 1916, he is a self-taught painter whose skill and versatility has established him as a predominant figure in Irish 20th century painting.

He is well known for his paintings of literary figures and fellow artists, including W.B. Yeats, James Joyce and his friends Samuel Beckett, Francis Bacon, Seamus Heaney and Bono. My favourites were these earlier works painted between 1939-1945.
