Description

Campbell, a painter of portraits, still-lifes, religious subjects and figure compositions, was born in Dublin and lived there all his life. Although not a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy, he exhibited there 1929-71. A shy, retiring figure who deserves greater recognition, he was overshadowed during his lifetime by his better-known brother, the sculptor Lawrence Campbell. This landscape, a highly stylized composition in pale, unnaturalistic tones, is an important addition to the Museum's holdings by Campbell. being a hitherto unrepresented aspect of his work.
