Biography from Whyte's:
Phelan Gibb was born in Northumberland, England in 1870, son of the artist Thomas Henry Gibb.  He studied in Newcastle, Edinburgh, Paris, Antwerp and Munich. 

Gibb spent twenty-five years in Paris at the turn of the twentieth century painting and there befriended a number of historically important artists, such as Henri Matisse, André Derain and others connected with the Fauve School in France.

Gibb was particularly proud of his mother's Irish parentage, hence his use of the name "Phelan".  He exhibited in Dublin twice, once in 1913 when his one man show, organised by Count Casimir Markievicz and Oliver St. John Gogarty, was closed by the police and his pictures were confiscated (and only returned to him in 1933). His second visit was to paint a commissioned portrait of the dancer Jacqueline Robinson, friend of Staggists Mainie Jellett, Kenneth Hall and Basil Rákóczi, to whom she was romantically linked. Bruce Arnold describes a work by Gibb, titled Paysage and painted in Collioure in the South of France in 1906, as 'the only Fauve work by an Irish artist.(1) '

Gibb exhibited in the Salon d'Automne in 1909 and was invited alongside Jack Butler Yeats to exhibit at the Armory Show in New York in 1913.(2)  From the 1930s onwards London art dealer Lucy Wertheim provided Gibb with the necessary financial resources to continue painting in his studio in London and later in his studio in Buckinghamshire.  Gibb also exhibited with the White Stag Group in London.Gibb died of a heart attack in Buckinghamshire in 1948.

Examples of his work can be found in permanent collection of the Tate Gallery in London and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  In 2011, the Peppercanister Gallery in Dublin held a solo show of his work.
