Roderick O'Connor Biography

(b Castleplunket, Co. Roscommon, Ireland 1860; d Nueil-sur-Layon, France 1940) Irish painter. Roderic O’Conor is known for his heavily Impressionist-influenced paintings. The inspiration behind O’Conor’s work is clearly drawn from Georges Seurat and his followers and more obviously from Signac, whose style O’Conor’s artwork most closely resembles. It is evident that O'Conor's first four years in France, from 1886 to 1890, were years of experimentation and discovery in which he tried different approaches to painting, inspired by the best and most progressive work that Paris had to offer. In deciding to leave the conservative and academic art climate of Dublin for Paris in 1886, the twenty six year old O'Conor could scarcely have chosen a more significant year to travel. 1886 was the year of the last Impressionist group exhibition and it was in this exhibition that Seurat first showed A Sunday afternoon on the island of la Grande Jatte. Even if he did not see the painting in this exhibition, the young and impressionable O'Conor would scarcely have been unaware of the fierce debate surrounding Seurat's painting style which many of the critics found to be too mechanical. Seurat's paintings and those of his followers became widely exhibited in Paris after 1886 so that O'Conor would have had ample opportunity to become familiar with the 'Neo-Impressionist' tendency.
