28 July - 2 December. Ireland's National Gallery offers an insight into a little-known but important aspect of the career of celebrated Irish oil painter Jack B. Yeats.
On show are 63 of the artist's secret illustrations for the satirical British magazine Punch, which published them under his pseudonym W. Bird. Between 1910 and 1948, the weekly publication featured over 500 imaginative and humorous illustrations by Yeats.
The exhibition also displays a variety of documents from Yeats’s personal library and an array of original and published illustrations and cartoons by other Irish artists of that era.
