The Breadline 1916

The Breadline 1916This painting is an interpretation of the aftermath of the Easter Rising, an insurrection staged in Dublin during Easter Week of 1916 with the aims of ending British rule in Ireland. The masterly composition and the clever grouping of the figures make this a significant study of somewhat the quaint characters that peopled the streets of Dublin during the rebellion.
