Quick overview Coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the birth of one of Ireland’s most important artists, this exhibition explores the role of memory in Jack B. Yeats’ life and work. From his earliest forays into oil painting, Yeats was unusually reliant on memory and retrospection. Memories of childhood in Sligo inspired many of his works, and particular motifs – music and horses prominent among them – recur in his paintings.
