This enigmatic portrait depicts Daniel O’Neill’s partner Maureen (the couple never married but Maureen changed her name to O'Neill by deed in the 1960s when they moved to London). Although O'Neill received no academic training, the painting echoes Old Master portraiture in the precise, focused pose, the low, receding landscape and air of stillness. His career as a whole forms a unique reflection on the themes of birth, death and love, imbued with a strong sense of mystery.
