SPOTLIGHT: THURLOE CONOLLY

Spotlight Picture:Thurloe Conolly, Painting XVIII, 1952. Painting XVIII typifies the shift that occurred in Thurloe Conolly’s art in the immediate post-war era. From as early as 1946 he had been moving towards a newer more formal style of geometric abstraction. He had been a founding member of the short lived but influential Dublin based White Stag Group, a collection of like-minded artists and musicians including the British emigres Neville Johnson and Stephen Gilbert. The White Stag Group was responsible for bringing much needed modernisation to the Irish art scene of the inter-war period. SEE MORE
