Artist Biographies

Louis Le Brocquy HRHA 1916 - 2012

“Louis le Brocquy, the elder statesman of Irish art…celebrations and accolades have been well-earned after more than seven decades during which this self-taught artist has come to be recognized both at home and internationally as the foremost Irish painter of the 20th century…Some measures of the appeal and stature of le Brocquy’s work is reflected in the rise and rise of the prices he achieves in the art market…He is one of the few Irish artist whose work is represented in the collections of the most prestigious international museums such as the Guggenheim in New York and the Tate in London…His own creative impulses have added uniquely and richly to Irish art” Irish Times, 4th November 2006.
