In the West of Ireland Art Print
Typical of Henry's style at the time, In the West of Ireland focuses on the landscape and skies of Connemara. The absence of people or of any sort of habitation brings a monumentality to the scene. Almost certainly a composite view made from sketches, the painting is a 'set-piece', a virtuoso performance in which the artist has set down irrevocably his view of the West in the terms which, like Constable's Suffolk or Cézanne's Provence, have become iconic.
