The Ox Mountains form a half-circle around Sligo, the town in the North-West of Ireland, where Yeats grew up. He is the best-known Irish painter of the 20th century, himself the son of the portrait painter John Butler Yeats, and brother of the celebrated poet William Butler Yeats. As a painter he was drawn to the area's continually shifting light and shade, and the changes in quality of atmosphere, which he captured with extremely loose brushwork.
