Biography  
Kitty O'Brien


Kitty Wilmer O'Brien was a well-known and respected exhibitor in Dublin art circles for over fifty years. She entered the RHA schools in 1926 and distinguished herself there by winning prizes for drawing and painting. In 1933 she won the coveted Taylor Scholarship, which enabled her to go to London to study at the Slade. Three years later she married surgeon Dr Brendan O'Brien, son of her former mentor, Dermod O'Brien PRHA. After a period spent abroad they settled in Dublin, at 65 Fitzwilliam Square, from where she submitted works to the Society of Dublin Painters, the RHA and the WCSI, of which she was President from 1962 to 1981.
