Born in Dublin in 1916, Louis le Brocquy's paternal grandfather came to Ireland from Belgium. His mother was a well-known figure in Dublin's artistic life and, encouraged by her, Louis left the family business to become a painter. In 1947 le Brocquy established himself in London as a self-taught artist of considerable originality. In 1958 he married the young Irish painter, Anne Madden, the author of this book. They live and work in France and Ireland. Widely known for his interiorized head images of Yeats, Joyce, Beckett, Bacon and other great artists, his brilliant series of brush drawings illustrating Thomas Kinsella's translation of "The Tain" is perhaps the work for which he is most popularly celebrated.
