Book Description: Following the progress of the Irish painter Tony O'Malley, this work is issued in conjunction with an original work, created in mixed media in the 1970s in St. Ives, taken from a suite of fifty known as the Seal Cottage series. Tony O'Malley was born in Callan, Co. Kilkenney in 1913. He worked for many years as a clerk with the Munster and Leinster Bank but after contracting tuberculosis and long periods in Sanatoria and hospitals, he was retired from the bank and this led him in his forties to pursue a long-desired career in Cornwall where he came into contact with many of the leading figures in the community of artists there, including Patrick Heron, Peter Lanyon, Bernard Leach, Terry Frost and Bryan Wynter.
