W.B. Yeats Family and Influences

W.B.Yeats 1994 Oil on canvas Louis le Brocquy


Drawn from the permanent collection of the Crawford Art Gallery, to celebrate the hundred and fiftieth of W.B. Yeats’ birth this exhibition explores the familial connections between the works of W.B. Yeats and his younger brother Jack Yeats. 

This exhibition views their shared common background and the recurrent themes which occur through both their works. It also draws from the literary influences W.B. Yeats benefited from and the political and social relationships he cultivated.
