  • Christy Brown was brilliantly played by Daniel Day-Lewis in the Oscar-winning film My Left Foot. But the complexities of his life, together with his struggle to be understood - and taken seriously - have only recently come to light. Those complexities were explored in a superb exhibition at the Little Museum of Dublin in 2015. The exhibition later travelled to New York where it went on view at the American Irish Historical Society on 5th Avenue from 11 to 24 November.The exhibitions were hugely popular with lovers of literature, history and Irish culture and explored the struggles of Brown as a child, and the way his family inspired him to create remarkable paintings, a classic memoir, four novels and four collections of poetry - all with his left foot. The majority of the works by Christy Brown in this sale were included in these shows. All works (lots 155-167) come from of a single owner collection and were acquired directly from the artist. This unique collection offers both collectors of Brown's oeuvre and art aficionados an opportunity to acquire rare and desirable visual records from the life of this inspirational figure.
