NEW FROM ORMEAU BOOKS
WILLY CONOR'S ATTIC and Other Places; Fifty Years of Collecting Art, by DENNISKENNEDY.
(Published May 2014)
A chance meeting with the artist William Conor in 1962, and an invitation to root
round his attic, led to the author's first ever purchase of a work of art. Over 50 years the
vagaries of a career in journalism aided in the acquisition of paintings and prints from many countries.
This book is both a catalogue of some 200 items, and the story of how they were found.
