Eveline An Irish Heroine

A Portrait of Eveline An Irish Heroine by John McDonald


This portrait of Eveline An Irish Heroine is an original oil painting by Scottish artist John McDonald, who created the acclaimed portrait Butterfly Cry.

This is a beautiful, gracious statement piece, a large, original painting telling the story of Eveline who came from Dublin to Derby as a young woman.

The painting depicts Eveline with piercing eyes which are both beautiful and haunting, and strongly calls to mind the look of an elder with dementia, Eveline is seeing ‘something other or beyond’

This painting is a highly original portrait painted in only black, white and greys, with the iconic fur coat worn like a costume, and a subtle background which may be read as a garden, as wall paper, or as part of Eveline’s ‘other’ reality.

The Original painting is available for sale.
