Arthur Power



Fisherman - 1979



Arthur Power (b. Guernesey, UK, 1891 and d. 1984), was a writer, art critic and a largely self-taught painter and a friend of James Joyce. He painted landscapes and occasional portraits in a cubist primitive style. A member of the RHA and the United Arts Club, he exhibited extensively in Ireland and abroad. He was also an art critic, working for New York Herald, the Irish Times and Tatler and Sketch. Power published 'Conversations with James Joyce' in 1978.


In his career as an artist Power exhibited as part of the Waterford Art Exhibition (1936), Irish Exhibition of living Art (1965, 1966), RHA (regularly from 1969 until 1983) and at Project Arts Centre (1971). Power presented a two person show at the United Arts Club, Dublin with Adrian Murray-Hayden. Retrospectives of Power’s work were held at Taylor Galleries, Dublin in 1983 and The United Arts Club in 1986.


He is represented in The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon’ s collection.
