George Collie, R.H.A., 1904 - 1975 

Portrait of a seated bishop

Signed, lower left “George Collie A.R.H.A.”

George Collie was born at Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. He studied at The Metropolitan School of Art in Dublin. He painted genre scenes but is perhaps best known for his formal portraits of such sitters as Eamon de Valera, Liam Cosgrave and Cardinal D’Alton. In 1929 he was painting in Paris after a brief and not totally happy experience of living in London. From 1922 to 1976 he exhibited 290 works at the R.H.A. His works can be seen at The National Gallery of Ireland and The Ulster Museum, Belfast.
