Pierrot / John Molloy

John Kelly

b. 1925 - d. 1995
Oil on canvas

In 'Pierrot/John Molloy', Kelly's friend and neighbour, John Molloy, poses for this realistic portrait. The pathos of the Pierrot in his hauntingly beautiful sad eyes and outstretched, poignant hands elevate this work from a mundane likeness. The Pierrot signifies the universally tragic figure with which all humans can identify.
