Great Irish Artists introduces fifteen of Ireland's most interesting painters and reproduces a selection of their work. It includes the undeniably great artists such as Jack B Yeats, while also presenting those names not so widely recognised, such as Norah McGuinness and Colin Middleton, as well as popular painters such as Sean Keating, Paul Henry and Sir William Orpen. Presented chronologically from Sir John Lavery to Louis le Brocquy, each artist is introduced with a concise biography, followed by a discussion of the individual works. Written in a clear, easy-to-read style and accompanied by over sixty colour reproductions, these illuminating short essays encourage the viewer to look at some of the finest Irish art alongside the ideas and aims of those who created it. Straightforward and inspiring, this beautiful book presents an invaluable introduction to a visual tradition that deserves to be better known.
