Eamonn O’Doherty: Linoblock Trees 1976

850.00

O’Doherty is primarily known as a sculptor in Ireland – and is well known for his Crann an Ór (Tree of Gold) commission for the Dame Street Plaza for the Central Bank of Ireland.

In fact the tree became part of the logo for the Central Bank of Ireland. These three trees were made in a tiny edition many years earlier. They contain the vibrant palette that O’Doherty often used in his fine art hand made prints. Many of these were made to raise funds for the studio in the 1960s and 1970s.
