Auction: December 2021
20 x 24 ins., (51 x 61 cms.) Water Colour, Signed lower right. Basil Rakoczi was one of the most interesting people to have painted in Ireland. He was a founder member of the White Stag Group with his friend Kenneth Hall when as a pacifist he moved to Ireland to escape the war. He did a great deal to help bring more modern art to many Irish painters of the time. We are delighted to be selling this painting, it is really one of his best.
