From 1929, Yeats lived in Fitzwilliam Square in the centre of Georgian Dublin. This picture, painted in a heavy impasto, depicts city streets bustling with people. At the centre, a lone man smoking a cigarette stands out between rows of red buildings. It has been suggested that this figure represents Yeats. The idea of the urban artist as a detached observer or flâneur was one that developed in art and literature during the nineteenth century. It later found particular appeal with Expressionist artists in the early twentieth century.
