Irish Artists, past and present

Please note that this is not intended to be a comprehensive listing of Irish artists - rather, it is a work in progress, mainly comprising some of the lesser known or more obscure but interesting artists whose work has sold through our rooms, with additions and updates occasionally made. A good deal of the information has come from two particularly useful reference works:

  • Theo Snoddy, Dictionary of Irish Artists: 20th Century, Merlin Publishing, Dublin, 2002 (second, revised edition),
  • Walter Strickland, A Dictionary of Irish Artists, Irish University Press, 1969 (2 volumes, facsimile reprint of the original 1913 edition).

Further information is available on many of the artists listed below, and Whyte's welcome any comments and/or corrections from readers. For a list of abbreviations used, please click here.
