Provenance: Purchased directly from the Artist several years ago. About the Artist: Ted Jones Artist was born in Dublin in 1952. Apart from early instruction from his father, Ted was a completely self-taught painter. He was encouraged to draw from a very early age and has nurtured and developed his immense talent into a style, which is unmistakably Ted Jones. His unique style probably owes a lot to the fact that he never attended Art College, left to his own devices his style evolved without influence, save the work of the great painters he admired so much, Klimt Rosetti, Carrivagio Ted Jones spent his early years serving in the army. The discipline of which has stood to him considering the time-consuming nature of his work. Painting firstly in monochrome tones to ensure the light and shade are correct, his figures are painted nude so that they are anatomically correct, only then are the colours clothing and textures built up in layers. Despite painting almost daily at the peak of his powers he produced less than 20 paintings a year. He also spent a brief time, as a pathologist’s assistant in Trinity College Dublin, where he attained a substantial insight into anatomy. He led a colourful and varied life, spending time in France and England, however most of his life was spent in the country of his birth, principally in Dublin and the latter years in Killarney where his superb Dublin wit and interaction with the locals indelibly etched him into the history of the town. In 1998, demand for his work led to the publication of the first of a series of Signed Limited Edition Prints which have been hugely successful with over 20 titles published since its inception. In fact, demand has been so strong that many of the editions are completely sold out – some of these prints are now changing hands for 10 times their original price. His first (and only) one-man exhibition in Killarney in 2005 sold out completely in a matter of hours, hitting the headlines in many Irish newspapers. 2006 saw the publication, by Killarney Art Gallery, of “A Life, Wrapped up” a signed limited-edition book on his life and work. Ted Jones emotionally charged portraits of emigrants, his pub scenes depicting a sadly now vanishing era of Irish pub life and his sensitive and beautiful nudes are the treasured possessions of private collectors, investment houses and business institutions the world over.
