Nick Miller: Portrait of Dónal Lunny

A portrait of Dónal Lunny, one of Ireland’s legendary musicians and composers, was today unveiled (Friday, 17th April, 2015), in the National Gallery of Ireland. The portrait was specially commissioned by the National Gallery of Ireland as part of the
inaugural Hennessy Portrait Prize. The artist, Nick Miller, winner of the Hennessy Portrait Prize in 2014, painted the portrait, ‘Dónal Lunny, Playing’, over a number of sittings in his Sligo studio.

Sean Rainbird, Director of the National Gallery of Ireland, said:
“Dónal Lunny is one of the most celebrated Irish musicians and music producers of his generation. His portrait by Nick Miller, winning artist of the Hennessy Portrait Prize in 2014, is a very welcome addition to the National Portrait Collection and we are delighted to display this new commission for the enjoyment of our visitors. Our thanks to Hennessy for their generosity and continued support.”
