Frank Mckelvey

A Painter in His Time

By S.B. Kennedy

Recent years have seen considerable growth of interest in the development of Irish art in the early years of the twentieth century. One of the most notable features of the inter-war period in particular was the evolution of what is often referred to as the 'Irish School of Landscape Painting'. Frank McKelvey, along with Paul Henry,J.H. Craig and Charles Lamb, was of the artists who created this school. This book includes a detailed discussion of McKelvey's life and career both as a landscape and a portrait painter and examines his work in the wider context of Irish art in his time. It also includes numerous illustrations of his work as well as lists of his major exhibitions and works in public collections.
