Celebrated Irish artist Louis Le Brocquy has passed away aged 95.
The painter died at his home in Dublin, Ireland on Wednesday (25Apr12) after a long battle with ill health.
Self-taught, Le Brocquy came to prominence thanks to his acclaimed portraits of literary figures W.B. Yeats, James Joyce and his friends Samuel Beckett, Francis Bacon and Seamus Heaney.
U2 frontman Bono commissioned Le Brocquy to paint his portrait in 1990.
His work was exhibited across the world, in museums including the Tate Modern in London and the Guggenheim in New York. He was the only living artist to see his work included in the Permanent Irish Collection of the National Gallery of Ireland.
Le Brocquy is survived by his wife and two sons.
