William Scott | The Michael Carroll Collection | Saturday 1 April – Tuesday 4 April 2017 | Taylor Galleries

Taylor Galleries is delighted to host the viewing of The Michael Carroll Collection, an Irish Art Auction by our neighbours at 35 Kildare Street, de Vere’s Art Auctions*. View the auction catalogue online here.

When people are described as being ‘passionate about art’, more often than not, what’s meant is that they have an ‘interest in art’. However, there can be no doubt in the mind of anyone who knew Michael Carroll that his passion for art was deep and consuming. He was a voracious collector, always on the lookout for new pieces, but within the constraints of a modest budget. The walls of his and his wife Ita’s Dalkey home were hung salon style, tightly packed to accommodate the works acquired slowly over decades.
