Raised in Belfast, the renowned Irish artist Gerard Dillon was largely self-taught, leaving school at fourteen to work as a painter and decorator and moved to London in 1934. He exhibited in London, Dublin and Northern Ireland during his lifetime. The artist Manie Jellett opened his first solo exhibition in Dublin in 1942. The West of Ireland, especially Connemara, played an important role in Dillon’s work. In 1958 he represented Ireland in the Guggenheim International Show, NY, and Great Britain in the Pittsburg International Exhibition. After his death in 1971 major retrospective of his work took place in the Ulster Museum and Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin (1972). Dillon frequently worked in oils, but also ventured into other mediums such as ink and wash.
