Biography   Gerard Dillon

Gerard Dillon (1916-1971)

A landscape artist and figure painter, the Irish artist Gerard Dillon was born in Belfast the youngest of eight children.  He left school at 14 and for seven years worked as a painter and decorator, mostly in London.  From an early age he was interested in art, cinema, and theatre. As a result, and inspired by the paintings of Marc Chagall and Sean Keating, Dillon gave up decorating about 1936 and started out as an artist, to which end he attended some classes at the Belfast College of Art.  Dan O'Neill was a painting acquaintance at this time, as were George Campbell and Arthur Armstrong.

Dillon was also encouraged by Mainie Jellett who staged his first solo exhibition at The Country S
