From his earliest forays into oil painting, Yeats was unusually reliant on memory and retrospection. Memories of childhood in Sligo inspired many of his works, and particular motifs – music and horses prominent among them – recur in his paintings. In a selection of oil paintings spanning more than 40 years, view places and people Yeats remembered, his observations of humanity, and reflections on life and loss in his later years.
