A Little Book of Drawings

£99.99

Product description

This small paperback booklet of drawings by Jack B. Yeats is one of a limited edition produced in 1971, which originally appeared in 'A Broadside', and which was produced to celebrate the centenary of the artist's birth.

John "Jack" Butler Yeats (29 August 1871 – 28 March 1957) was an Irish artist and Olympic medalist. W. B. Yeats was his brother. Butler's early style was that of an illustrator; he only began to work regularly in oils in 1906. His early pictures are simple lyrical depictions of landscapes and figures, predominantly from the west of Ireland—especially of his boyhood home of Sligo. Yeats's work contains elements of Romanticism.

The top edges of the pages have not been cut. The paper cover is stained, and the cover edges are a little bent but the pages are clean.
