William Crozier's work has stood the test of time as being some of the best ever created by an Irish artist. Judge for yourself at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
William Crozier was a Scottish-born, Irish artist whose work saw him appreciated on a European scale.
Crozier was nothing if not urbane, settling in London, Dublin and Paris at one time or another. His work - figurative, bright and abstract, saw him aligned with European artists, and their appreciation was proven when he was awarded the Premio Lissone in Milan in 1958.
IMMA is looking to the landscapes that Crozier created during the autumn of his career, when he was resident in his beloved West Cork, and contrasting them with his early work which was inspired by the existentialism movement in the shadow of the recently-ceased world war.
William Crozier passed away in 2011, but IMMA is ensuring that his memory doesn’t fade with the years by renewing the public’s interest in his work with this comprehensive exhibition.
