Is this true:

He is the first and only living artist to be included in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Ireland.

Yes it is. Also he is cuurently 2005, one of only 4 artist from the British isles who during their life-time have fetched more than one million pounds for a picture. The others are/were, Hockney, Bacon and Freud. Geoff

The "Work In Collections" section needs to be expanded. Wikipedia seems to live up to the name "Encyclopedia" as far as science and technology entries are concerned but lags behind traditional Encyclopediae when it comes to the arts.

Is there anything anywhere re the supposedly prestigious "Premio Acquisito Internationale"? I tried to wikify & figured, heck if it is prestigious it deserves an article - lo & behold, 800 ghits, do it again -Brocquy, and no ghits at all; which would indicate that this prize is considered prestigious only amongst those who discuss Brocquy. I am not casting nasturtiums here - but could someone validate the prestigious nature of this award?Bridesmill 15:27, 2 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I found this: "In June 1956 le Brocquy represented Ireland, with the sculptor Hilary Heron, at the Venice Biennale. Among the works shown was A Family. It was awarded the Nestlé-endowed Premio Aquisitato", see CIRCA Art Magazine, and "The picture was sent for exhibition at the 1956 Venice Biennale, where it was awarded the prize, Premio Acquisito Internationale, and purchased by the Nestlé Corporation for their headquarters in Milan where it hung until 2001", see 2 . So perhaps, not such a prestigious prize... --Myrabella 22:40, 30 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Quite. Thanks for that digging; some interesting stuff in the article you found which is worth weaving into this article...Bridesmill 23:05, 30 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Is it possible to upload the images in Wikimedia Commons ? So I could use them in the article in French (and in other languages :-) Thanks a lot, --Myrabella 23:26, 1 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
