Evening - Ink on Paper
Jack B Yeats was born at 23 Fitzroy Road, Regents
Park, London, on August 29th,
1871. He was the youngest son of the Irish portraitist John Butler
Yeats and the brother of the Nobel Prize winning poet William Butler Yeats. Yeats was well known for painting Irish landscapes aswell as
horses and travelling players. While his
early paintings and drawings used quite simple line and colour, his later
paintings became very vigorous and he became quite experimental, thickly
applying paint and often abandoning the brush altogether. Yeats also had an interest in the theatre and literature, he
designed sets for the Abbey Theatre and three of his own plays were also
produced there. Yeats was elected a member of the Royal Hibernian
Academy in 1916. He died in Dublin in 1957.
