About this title

Synopsis:

Hogarth records a critical moment in England's ceramic revolution.

From Booklist:

The greatest name in modern Irish literature is also the greatest name in modern Irish painting. The poet's father, John Butler Yeats (1839^-1922), was a master portraitist crucially influenced by Whistler, and his mature work is tonally gorgeous as well as psychologically acute. The poet's brother Jack Butler Yeats (1871^-1957) was a great landscapist whose work became ever more expressionist in treatment. The lion's share of brilliant colorplates here presents the work of these two. But all the senior Yeats' children were artistically trained, and the poet and his sisters Susan Mary (Lily) and Elizabeth Corbet (Lolly) are each represented by one colorplate and one black-and-white figure. This family album, so to speak, concludes with two works by the poet's daughter Anne. Pyle, who has published extensively on Jack Butler Yeats, gracefully combines biography and art commentary in his introduction and generous annotations to the colorplates, and he includes a chronology extending from John Butler's birth to Anne's 1995 retrospective exhibition. No Irish-tinged library should be without this handsome book. Ray Olson
