The legend of the Irish mythological hero Cúchulainn was to occupy stages of le Brocquy's career in various forms, from ink illustrations, tapestries and as in the present work, watercolour. In line with le Brocquy's treatment of the human figure in other works, he has an ethereal presence. Emerging from the white paper, with collage skilfully used to represent his shield, Cúchulainn's transient nature subtly examines the mythology itself.
