    ROMANTIC EARLY STYLE YEATS AT DE VERES

    Sunday, March 24th, 2019

    Tralee shows Jack B. Yeats in the last and most romantic phase of his early style.  The 1924 work comes up at de Veres evening sale of Irish art at the Royal College of Physicians on Kildare St., Dublin at 6 pm on March 26 with an estimate of 150,000-200,000. Against a background of post sunset fading light it shows an old man gazing reflectively at the water with young people passing by. It can be read as a comment on the past and the future. Emigration had been halted since 1914 by the First World War and the war in Ireland which followed. In 1924 cheap fares to America saw a flood of young people leaving the country. The painting was previously owned both by Sean Lemass and Charles Haughey.
