Brian Dennington

Born in Somerset, Brian trained in fine art in London and afterwards worked free-lance as an illustrator. With the advent of the Apple computer, when illustration as an art form almost ceased to exist, he decided to concentrate on portrait painting and painting for exhibition.

He has exhibited at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and whilst living in Ireland was invited artist at the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Carlow Eigse and at one time was resident artist during the Irish general election campaign. Over the years I have held a number of solo exhibitions, and work in private collections is as follows:

• Leinster House, (The Dáil) Dublin
• Warner Brothers, U.S.A.
• Office Public Works, Dublin
• Ruairi Quinn, T.D.Minister of Education, Irish Republic
• Trinity College, London
• Lady Evelyn Barbirolli
• Canadian Prime Minister
• Christy Moore
• Dermot Desmond, Irish Republic
• Judge Michael Rich Q.C.
• Mr & Mrs Lonnegan, Concorde, New Hampshire

After moving from Ireland to live in France he placed less emphasis on portraiture, and concentrated almost entirely on figure work, and gradually there became a considerable demand for his nudes and figure studies. He has now returned to my roots, live in Devon, and regularly show and sell my work in the UK and Ireland.
