Inspired by Yeats

The exhibition “Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen,” curated by the Hamilton Gallery in Sligo, was launched at the Irish Consulate in New York on last Wednesday evening. It features 129 art works, each of which takes its title from a line in or is otherwise a reflection on W. B. Yeats’s poem “Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen.” Alison Watkins, with her husband Mark Cavanagh, represented her sister, Irish-based artist Lorna Watkins, whose oil on canvass work “leave the mother, murdered at her door” can be seen on the lower left side of the panel.
