Early Morning, Connemara Canvas Print
For over 50 years MacGonigal painted the towns, villages and landscapes of the west of Ireland. In this picture he conveys the rugged, panoramic landscape and rocky coastline of Connemara, with Mannin Bay in the distance. In his later paintings, such as this example, MacGonigal's style became fluid and spontaneous. While the calm sky is smoothly painted, the terrain is rendered in rapid, energetic style, and the whitewashed cottages, rocks, reflections on the bay and outline of the coast sparkle with the texture of oil paint.
National Gallery of Ireland Canvas Prints almost feel like having the real painting on your wall. Printed on Hahnemühle Leonardo Canvas using ultra chrome HDR pigment inks, our canvas prints come rolled in a protective tube with the paintings information.
In order to preserve the image and prevent unnecessary fading, the canvas should not be exposed to direct sunlight and its harmful UV rays.
