Taylor Galleries

Opened by John Taylor in 1978 following the closure of the renowned Dawson Gallery, Taylor Galleries was - until its recent closure - one of the most important art venues in Dublin. It used to specialize in contemporary drawing, Irish painting, Irish sculpture, prints and ceramics, featuring works by many of the great 20th century Irish artists. John Taylor maintained several close working relationships with several Irish artists, including the late Louis Le Brocquy, who exhibited on twenty-one occasions at Dawson and Taylor Galleries since 1962 including the historic exhibitions "The Táin portfolios" (1969); "Studies Towards an Image of WB Yeats" (1975); and "Procession" (2003).

Other visual artists who used to feature regularly at the Gallery included:
Brian Ballard, Tom Carr, Peter Collis, Gary Devon, Michael Dunn, George Gillespie, Charles McAuley, Frank McKelvey, Gladys Maccabe, Louise Mansfield, Cecil Maguire, Sean McSweeny, Colin Midddleton, Dan O'Neill, Markey Robinson, Dennis Orme Shaw, Joop Smits, Mary Swanzy, Charles Tyrrell, JB Vallely, Maurice C Wilks, and Robin Wylie.
