Barbara Warren

Barbara Warren was born in Dublin and attended NCAD before leaving to attend for Regent Street Polytechnic. Certainly, there is unified opinion that Barbara Warren was of the school of early modern women artists who made an important contribution to Irish art. Like others in this group, Warren studied in Paris (at Atelier André L'Hote) and she remains an exemplar of her time, namely in her linear character and somber palette.

She spent time with Charles Lamb at Carraroe and this output would make up a portion of her landscapes, as well as scenes around her home in Howth and in Achill. She painted figure studies, still life and interiors also. Throughout her breadth of subject she maintains a distinctly calm vision. In a 2002 catalogue Julian Campbell said of her that "There can be few other Irish artists of the late twentieth century whose work displays such sharpness of observation, such exactness of representation, such clarity of line, such care in the placing of forms, and such thoroughness of craft."

Among her achievements Barbara Warren exhibited regularly at Taylor Galleries, became a member of Royal Hibernian Academy in 1989 and member of Aosdána in 1990.
