Louis le Brocquy ‘Allegory & Legend’

Friday 16th June 2006 - Sunday 24th September 2006

Louis le Brocquy, who was born in Dublin in 1916, is regarded as Ireland’s most important living artist and one of the country’s great painters of the 20th century. His painting of the heads of great literary and artistic figures such as W.B. Yeats, Samuel Beckett, James Joyce, Pablo Picasso, William Shakespeare, Federico Garcia Lorca and Seamus Heaney are recognized the world over as being a distinctively powerful and significant part of the canon of 20th century art. Equally, his reflections on historical themes, mythical stories and folk rituals express deeply felt reactions to our past, with contemporary eyes.

This year, 2006, marks le Brocquy’s 90th year. To celebrate this event, The Hunt Museum, in collaboration with Pierre le Brocquy, is curating a major exhibition of his works.
