The Jack B Yeats ‘Painting and Memory’ Exhibition, in the National Gallery of Ireland is a must see exhibition for everyone with any interest in Yeats and his work.
This is a unique chance to see 85 of his paintings many on loan from private collections and overseas galleries and museums, and follow his development and change as an artist. It is hard to believe that he created some of his finest and most innovative work, 594 paintings between the age of seventy and eighty years of age.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of his birth and Donal Maguire and Brendan Rooney have curated an outstanding testament to his creativity and genius, love of life and painting.
As I wondered around this world class exhibition I felt that I got an extraordinary sense of the man and the joy he got from his work as an artist.I found it very moving and can’t wait to visit the exhibition again.
The Exhibition runs until 6th February 2022 but all visits must be pre-booked. Children under 18 years of age go free. Do not miss this chance to see such a memorable collection of work by Ireland’s finest artist.
