Louis le Brocquy and His Masters: Early Heroes Later Homage opened recently at the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, to mark le Brocquy’s 90th birthday.

17th February, 2007

The exhibition is divided into two pivotal periods: Early Heroes (1939-45) explores the Masters from Japanese and western European art who inspired le Brocquy to become a painter.

The other, Later Homage (20052006), comprises recent work by le Brocquy – such as Southern Window (above), which was greatly influenced by Edouard Manet. In this section the artist acknowledges a life-long admiration for artists such as Manet, Velazquez and Cezanne.
