About the Artists Database

The NIVAL Artists Database has been compiled in order to improve public access to the Library's extensive information files on 20th century and contemporary Irish artists.  These files contain exhibition catalogues, newspaper cuttings and ephemera on over 3,500 artists born or based in Ireland.

The Artists Database is a reference resource providing basic biographical and work details on each artist abstracted from the information contained in the hard copy files held in the Library.  It is important to realise that the records are a summary of the information held in each artist's file.  A visit to NIVAL is recommended to researchers seeking a comprehensive view of the actual files.

Although we have endeavoured to ensure the information is correct, it is inevitable, given the diverse sources of information, that some inaccuracies may occur.  Changes and updates are made on an ongoing basis and the Library welcomes suggestions, criticism, and donations of relevant material.

Born in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, Jeremy Henderson, an Irish painter of Scottish decent, dedicated his life to the creation and realisation of his art and its meaning, reflecting life's panorama, be that of his home town of Lisbellaw and Ireland's troubles, or his unique journey through life, its loves and inspirations and the perspectives presented to him, destined to become a painter of influence.
