The Life and Work of Harry Jones Thaddeus, 1859-1929
Harry Jones Thaddeus received his artistic training in Cork, London and Paris before embarking on a remarkable career that took him all over the world and introduced him to some of the most significant figures of the age. Though based for most of his life in England, he also spent significant periods in Wales, France, Italy, Germany, Morocco, Egypt, Australia and the United States, earning his living chiefly as a portrait painter among the upper echelons of society. His sitters included Franz Liszt, William Gladstone, Michael Davitt and two popes. He also produced landscapes, literary and religious pictures, and was responsible for what is arguably the most dramatic image of the Land War in Ireland in the late 19th century (which was heavily influenced by Irish-Americans). This is the first detailed study of Thaddeus, an accomplished and distinguished artist and an extraordinary character.
