Gerard Byrne 'Forever Green II' triptych

 

Having travelled the world as one of leading exponents of modern impressionist painting Gerard has returned repeatedly over the last thirty years to the National Botanical Gardens in Dublin, a location close to his heart and home and where as a young wide-eyed painter he perfected his mastery.

Gerard continues to find inspiration painting amongst the diversity and abundance of the world famous Gardens. Many of his spectacular and celebrated paintings not only convey the vibrancy and lushness of the flora they feature dramatic renderings of the iconic wrought iron architecture of the great Georgian Palm Houses.
