Arguably Ireland's most famous painter, a man of peace and a committed nationalist, Jack B. Yeats was deeply affected by the violence that accompanied Ireland's long struggle for freedom. The author traces the artist's life and work, from his colourful family background through his early days as a line illustrator, to the later years when his highly original style and extravagant use of colour earned him comparisons with Titian and Giorgone. This book, richly illustrated with some of the finest examples of his work, underlines the fact that Jack B. Yeats is not only a great Irish painter but one of the major figures in 20th century European art. A magnificent book. N.B. This is a lavish, high quality production. Each copy is individually boxed for posting or for secure transport. An ideal gift or memento.
