Jack Yeats (1871-1957) stands a a major figure in Irish 20th-century art. An isolated artist throughout his life, Yeats dominated soley through the talent, magic and inventiveness of his painting. His vision and his standing, as well as the many critical judgments during the 40 years since his death have provoked controversies which the author confronts. In this biography Bruce Arnold tells the full story of the artist's life and analyzes his prodigious output. This included not only some 1000 paintings and vast numbers of illustrations, comic cartoons, drawings and watercolours, but also seven novels and nine plays. Based on research among primary sources, this illustrated book describes the life of the son of the portrait painter John Butler Yeats and the younger brother of the poet William Butler Yeats. It provides a portrait of the complex and enigmantic artist whose reputation and artistic vision have become increasingly admired in the years since his death.
