A major book on a leading Irish sculptor. Brian Fallon describes Imogen Stuart as ‘a Woman of Two Worlds– German by birth, upbringing and artistic training, but also Irish by adoption, involvement and sympathy’. The elder daughter of Germany’s leading art critic of the Thirties and a pupil of Otto Hitzberger, she moved to Ireland c.1950 and has been a professional artist all her working life. This book includes essays by Brian Fallon and Peter Harbison, a long interview with the artist, and a checklist of her work.
Brian Fallon, retired art critic of the Irish Times, is one of Ireland’s leading commentaries on twentieth-century Ireland.
