Artist: Rory Breslin (b.1963) Title: Michael Collins (2016) Signature: signed, numbered 2/3 & dated 2016 Medium: bronze on polished granite base - number 2 from an edition of 3 Size: 74 x 65 x 45cm (29 x 25 x 18in) Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist Private Collection More info: Click to read more about this lot Michael Collins bust is based on the interpretation of two images of him (photograph's illustrated). The first is believed to have been taken not long before the Treaty negotiations where his countenance is determined, his gaze fixed and his hair near tousled. The second from a Pathé news reel possibly taken in Richmond Barracks in full uniform. By combining elements of the images; the aura of resolve and tenacity, the uniform and subtly adjusting some aspects of the presentation....bowing the head slightly in thought, unbuttoning the uniform, the bronze depicts a Collins resolute yet perhaps reflective. Deep in thought, he emanates the presence of a man with many things to contemplate and difficult decisions to make. Rory Breslin, March 2016
