John Butler Yeats
1839-1922
SELF-PORTRAIT

Catalogue Note

The present work dates to the end of John Butler Yeats' life when he was living in New York - the drama and activity of his previous life in London and Dublin seemingly a lifetime away. It relates to the commission he received to paint a self-portrait (lot 64) from his patron in the United States, John Quinn, which spurred a number of pencil studies such as the present.
