The Whitethorn Gallery
Inspired by the William Butler Yeats Poem ‘The Wild Swans at Coole’ – Lady Gregory’s Estate in Sligo where Yeats spent a great deal of time.
He and lady Gregory were lifelong friends and collaborators, and together with others founded the Abbey Theatre.
Coole Park was transformed into a place where the most important figures of the Irish Literary Revival of the early 20th Century would congregate, returning to it time and time again to talk, plan and derive inspiration.
This Sculpture, depicting Yeats with the Wild Swans flying above his head, is hand welded bronze, patinated, and set on a Granite Plinth
