About Jack Butler Yeats

Jack Butler Yeats was born August 29, 1871 in London, England. He was the son of artist John Butler Yeats and younger brother of W.B. Yeats, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1923 for Literature. Jack Yeats began his career as an illustrator for magazines such as Boy’s Own Paper, drew comic strips for Comic Cuts and wrote articles for Punch. Around 1920, his style moved towards expressionism and symbolism further from illustration. As an artist, Yeats believed that he must be a part of the land and life he paints, articulating a modern Dublin, partly by depicting Irish subjects in light of universal themes such as loneliness, man plight and life after death.

Yeats early paintings portrayed simplicity of line and color, his later works portrayed more of a vigorous treatment with thick layers of paint. Yeats often experimented on the application of paint, fascinated by the expressive power of color. He became the most important Irish artist in the 20th century.  Since his death in 1957, his work has been exhibited throughout the world and studied by many.
