The Last of the Tide

The Last of the Tide

Eileen Hogan will be exhibiting as part of the “The Last of the Tide” group exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace on Saturday, 6 June 2015 to Wednesday, 17 June 2015.

“This exhibition showcases 12 portraits of veterans of D-Day, inspired and commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales following his attendance at the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy last year. The portraits pay tribute to some of the extraordinary men that played a role in the Allied invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944. The largest amphibious invasion in history, the D-Day landings involved some 7,700 ships and 12,000 aircraft and led to the liberation of German-occupied France. The 12 veterans are shown wearing their medals and in some instances their regimental berets.  All of them served in regiments with which The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have a formal  affiliation. Unique and poignant, the portraits have been created by twelve different artists, among them Jonathan Yeo, James Lloyd, Ishbel Myerscough and Stuart Pearson Wright. The exhibition was curated by artist Catherine Goodman, Artistic Director at The Royal Drawing School and will be touring to The Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh in January 2016. Admission is free. Tickets are available from the Gallery, on the day only. ” – From hwww.royalcollection.org.uk/exhibitions/the-last-of-the-tide blurb

Reviews of “‘Of Green Leaf, Bird, and Flower’: Artists’ Books and the Natural World”

“Hogan is a marvelous painter in the tradition of the best British followers of Cézanne. One thinks of the soft, dry touch of Gwen John, the careful observation of nature by William Coldstream, and the precision of Euan Uglow, applied to a deeply felt experience of a landscape created by a conceptual artist who was in his own way the equal of Andy Warhol or Joseph Beuys. ” – ANDREW RAFTERY
