Louis le Brocquy, Children in a Wood I, 1988, oil on canvas, 114 x 146 cm. Loan, the artist.

RIP one of the most inspiring Irish Artists of all time.

Le Brocquy was widely acclaimed for his evocative “Portrait Heads” of literary figures and fellow artists, which include William Butler YeatsJames Joyce, and his friends Samuel BeckettFrancis Bacon and Seamus Heaney, in recent years le Brocquy’s early “Tinker” subjects and Grey period “Family” paintings, have attracted attention on the international marketplace placing le Brocquy within a very select group of British and Irish artists whose works have commanded prices in excess of £1 million during their lifetimes that include Lucian FreudDavid HockneyFrank Auerbach, and Francis Bacon.[4]

The artist’s work is represented in numerous public collections from the Guggenheim, New York to the Tate Modern, London. In Ireland, he is honoured as the first and only living painter to be included during his lifetime in the Permanent Irish Collection of the National Gallery of Ireland.[5] Louis le Brocquy died on the 25th April 2012 and is survived by his wife Anne Madden Le Brocquy and his two sons, Pierre and Alexis.
