Artist Bio

Alicia Boyle RBA

Alicia Boyle (1908-1996) was born in Bangkok, Thailand but grew up in Derry, before moving to London to study. She attended the Clapham School of Art and then the Byam Shaw School of Drawing and Painting under F. Ernest Jackson. In 1938 she accepted an offer from the Greek government to be artist in residence on the island of Mykonos, travelling between there and London for a time before returning to Ireland to live and paint.
Boyle felt inspired by and dealt primarily with subjects of nature, taking artistic influence from Daumier, Millet, Rouault and the poetry of Frank O’Connor. 

She exhibited at the Royal Academy as a student (1932), Leicester and Leger Galleries (1949, 1951 and 1953), CEMA in Belfast and the Waddington Gallery in Dublin. Her work has been part of collections at the Bank of Ireland, Irish Arts Council and in public galleries in Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Derbyshire. She held a number of solo shows at Peter Jones Gallery (from 1945) and Crawford Municipal Art Gallery in Cork (1988).
