American-Irish sculptor Andrew O’Connor, Jr. worked mainly in marble and stone to produce monumental portraits and figures. He was the son of classical sculptor Andrew O’Connor, Sr. (1846-1924), who taught his son the basic concepts of the art. Andrew O’Connor, Jr. developed a vigorous and realistic style of sculpture. He began his studies in America with apprenticeships to William Ordway Partridge (1861-1930) and Daniel Chester French (1850-1931), before setting sail for Europe. One of his first European influences was the painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), whose works O’Connor saw during a stay in England between 1894 and 1897.

Andrew O’Connor, Jr. later settled in Paris with his wife Jessie and their four sons Hector, Owen, [Roderic] and [Patrick] who were also noted artists and sculptors. There he became influenced by the work of Auguste Rodin, whom he befriended. In the 1930s the family moved to Dublin, Ireland.
