Are there any Francis Bacon paintings in Ireland?
I know his studio was donated after his death.
Not sure about paintings.
yeah will go at some point.

unsure how i feel about hirst though to be honest. which is probably a reasonably good reason to go and see the exhibition.

it galls me to pay money to see his work given his massive wealth. there's a chance HERSELF will get tickets though.

I'd say Louis Le Brocquy has done his chances no harm now.

It should be on IRISH painters.

We don't appreciate our artists enough at all.

There's a painting by Jack Yeats I love, but don't know what it's called.
It looks abstract, but then your eyes adjust and you can see there's a horse bolting, with a house fire in the background.
It's massive; dominates the Yeats exhibition in the National Gallery.

Anyone know which one I'm talking about?

Maybe you were just standing too close to it.
