Gilroy was an artist and illustrator, born in Whitley Bay, the son of the painter John William Gilroy whose work is also included in the Collection. He attended Armstrong College (now part of Newcastle University) until his studies were interrupted by the First World War, in which he served with the Royal Field Artillery. After the war, he gained a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, achieving his diploma in 1920. He exhibited his paintings widely, and was a noted portrait painter, being a particular favourite of the Royal Family. Retrospective exhibitions of his work were staged in London in 1985, the year of his death, and at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle in 1998 to celebrate his centenary. He was an associate of the Royal College of Art, a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and received an honorary MA from Newcastle University.
