Description: signed and dated lower right; signed and titled on reverse
Frederick O' Neill Gallagher was an Irish landscape painter, who spent much of his life painting in France in the district of Corbeil, a small town on the Seine, south of Paris.
He was fascinated by the French Post-Impressionist School of Painters and his work is reminiscent of Monet. Gallagher used a constrained palette of muted blues, greys, pinks and greens to convey the hazy summer morning light, in his paintings of the Seine.
While living in France he sent work back to England and Ireland for exhibition in London and Dublin.
He exhibited at the New English Art Club in 1910, and works are known dated 1903 to 1915. An example of his work, A View On The Seine 1915 is in The Ulster Museum.
Although his birth date is not recorded it is believed he died circa 1937.
