      //Jack Butler Yeats//



      • Known as: Irish painter, stage designer, and writer
      • Born: 1871
      • Date of death: 1957



    • Jack B. Yeats was the youngest son of the Irish portrait painter John Butler Yeats; his brother was the Nobel Prize winning poet William Butler Yeats. Boyhood home was in Sligo.

      Yeats did not begin to paint in oil until he was 44 in 1915. Before this he worked in watercolour and also worked as an illustrator for the family press (later known as the Cuala Press).

      In 1913, he exhibited at the Armory Show.

      His style of work was intensely romantic; the work in the years from 1920 approached Abstract Expressionism.

      Oskar Kokoschka was a close friend.

      He was married to Cottie (Mary Cottenham White) from 1894 to her death in 1947.
