Victor Richardson was born in Belfast in 1952 and moved to Cork in 1974 and his pen and ink drawings are similar to those of Gladys Leach.
Gladys Leach is one of Ireland’s best known artists. Now retired from producing new work, Gladys is still in good health and celebrated her 93rd birthday in March 2010. She has been drawing and painting images of her much loved city of Cork since she was a young girl. Her images are a wonderful record of many of Cork's famous and not-so-famous buildings and landscapes. One might even say they are a part of our Cork heritage. Her work has also involved Dublin, Kerry and many other parts of Ireland.
Gladys began her career making slides for the Savoy Cinema, where she worked for a time. There, she painted words to songs onto glass and they were projected onto a large screen. A man called Fred Bridgeman played the organ which rose up out of the floor and the audience would sing along.
Gladys trained in Cork's school of art and set up a graphics business on Patrick Street, where she produced artwork for businesses of all shapes and sizes. While there, she designed the world-famous "Cork Dry Gin" label. She produced Christmas cards which were very popular and were distributed worldwide. During this time, she also managed to raise seven children. Sell out exhibitions were testimony to her work and commissions were always in demand.
Her work is highly
collectible and these Cork Scenes were painted
in 1974 making them part of this wonderful vintage collection. Each scene is
now from a by-gone era of Irish life and is still a timeless piece of art.
