Symphonic Irish Spring Sunrise over Lissycasey, County Clare, Ireland.

A symphony of pastel colors — crimsons, oranges, blues, yellows and greens — band together to welcome a peaceful and vibrant Spring morning over the Irish countryside of County Clare near Lissycasey in this impressionist treatment of my original image.

This spectacular smorgasbord of colors accompanied by a chorus of birds spawned a sunny Spring day in the Irish countryside.

Irish art has proven to be a very strong investment over the years, with pieces selling at auction for as much as $142 million!

The most expensive painting by an Irish artist was “Three Studies of Lucian Freud” by Francis Bacon (1909-1992), auctioned in 2013 by Christie’s, New York, for $142 million. Bacon also had a number of other multimillion dollar paintings.

William Orpen (1878-1931) was Ireland’s top portrait artist — his top selling work was auctioned in 2001 by Sothebys, London, for £1.98 million pounds.

Jack Butler Yeats (1871-1957), younger brother of poet William Butler Yeats, painted a number pieces that have sold for millions. Yeats was considered one of Ireland’s top painters of the country’s life and culture, with his distinctive expressionist style. “The Whistle of a Jacket”  sold at auction by Christie’s, London, for £1.4 million pounds in 2001.

John Lavery (1856-1941) has been dubbed Ireland’s leading impressionist painter, with his top selling painting, “The Bridge at Grez,” going for as much as £1.3 million pounds in 1998.

As you can see, Ireland’s rich soil and fresh air has fueled the creativity of more than poets and musicians!
