Joseph Higgins (1885-1925)

By comparison with the fame achieved by other artists like John Foley, John Hogan, Patrick MacDowell, John Hughes, Oliver Sheppard, Andrew O'Connor, Albert Power, Rosamund Praeger and Jerome Connor, in the visual arts of Ireland, the career of the sculptor Joseph Higgins was received in silence.

Born in Ballincollig Cork, Higgins was a night student at the Crawford School of Art and learned modelling and wood carving from his father.  In 1924, he won the Bronze Medal for sculpture at the Tailteann Games.

Higgins cast sculptures in bronze and also carved in wood and marble.  Sadly, his work remained almost unknown during his lifetime and has only been shown in any quantity quite recently, thanks to the efforts of his son-in-law, the great Cork sculptor, Seamus Murphy.
