Henry lived on Achill Island, Co. Mayo, for several years, sensitively recording its inhabitants and terrain. Here, five fishermen drag their boat towards the incoming tide. The work was created shortly after his arrival on Achill, when he focused on the harsh realities of the islanders' existence. The currach was ideally suited to their needs; being made of wickerwork and hide, it was lightweight, capable of negotiating both shallow waters and rough seas, and did not require a harbour.
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.
