George Bernard Shaw
Declan O' Connor
Artist in oils
Declan O'Connor from Co.Tipperary, has enjoyed
considerable success after beginning to paint relatively late
in life (1990).
Beginning, first of all, with portaiture depicting
the Irish Writers ? Yeats, Joyce, Beckett and Shaw and then
turning his attention to the 1916 signatories in 1992 which
were subsequently purchased personally by Michael Smurfit. From
then he has turned to landscapes and horses (especially horse
fairs), his style becoming more fluid and Jack B Yeats? like.
He has returned to portaiture occasionally, most notably a C.J.Haughey
portrait, which was publicly auctioned.
