How to paint the most impressive impressionist painting in the world
With her wide eyes, her piercing gaze and the way she stares into the distance, a young woman from Ireland is known as the “impressionist of the moment”.
She is known in art circles for her work on impressionism paintings.
She is the artist who made the impressionist movement a huge global phenomenon, becoming the most important artist of her generation and the first to become a member of the Hall of Fame of the British Society of Painters and Sculptors.
But Ms McBride’s legacy is not limited to her paintings.
In a time of unprecedented globalisation, the artist is now a global figure and an important influence on art-world debates.
She has been described as the first female artist in the field and one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, as well as a key figure in the globalisation of art and the development of modern science.
She was born in the village of Monaghan, Co Meath, on February 10, 1908.
She became a student at the Éire school in Belfast, where she learnt about the art form.
She moved to London, where her paintings were first exhibited in 1913 and became one of its most acclaimed artists.
Her work became so influential that the American art critic Thomas Guggenheim wrote: “Her art is inextricably linked with the idea of what art is and what the world looks like”.
She was given the Royal Art Medal by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1935.
In 1939, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by the US President Franklin D Roosevelt.
In her late 50s, she retired from the Royal Academy of Art in New York.
After her death in 1973, the paintings were exhibited at the Tate Gallery in London and the Tate Modern in London.
After that, she became a permanent resident of Dublin and the Irish Embassy in Washington, DC.
She had a lifelong fascination with the work of her contemporaries.
She studied painting at the University of Chicago.
She worked as an art director at the National Gallery in Dublin, as a consultant to the Royal Commission on the Preservation of Art and the Art of the World and as a freelance artist.
Her first painting was on a canvas at the Royal Court Palace in London, in 1921, and she later travelled the world to participate in the Royal Painters Exhibition at the Vatican.
The last painting was at the Museum of Modern Art in St Louis in 1976.
She died in London on January 12, 2007.
