2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of W.B. Yeats. In 2014, Hamilton Gallery approached over 100 of Ireland’s leading and emerging contemporary artists with an invitation to create a 20x20cm canvas inspired by the work of the poet and his work. Accordingly Impressions and Portraits of W.B. Yeats exhibition is a prescient comprehensive artistic response to the work of one of our literary giants in the 75 years since his death. Through the works contributed the vibrant legacy and resonance Yeats evinces at the cutting edge of contemporary Irish culture, has been captured.
Impressions and Portraits of W.B. Yeats is a fascinating insight into how the work of a great radical artist can influence and inform the undercurrents of subsequent generations.
