Irish painter Dermod O’Brien, a grandson of the Irish patriot William Smith O’Brien (1803-64), painted mainly landscapes and portraits. He attended Harrow School and Cambridge University, before visiting the Continent in 1886 to study the paintings of the Old Masters at the Louvre. Later in 1887 he moved to the Antwerpen Academy of Fine Arts, and from 1891 was back at the Académie Julian in Paris. He was an academic painter, but his style loosened when he was painting familiar scenes, such as the Shannon, the Liffey, and Dublin Bay.
