Collins, Patrick (1910 - 1994)
Irish artist Patrick Collins smoking a cigarette in his studio in Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin, in April 1984. This still was taken during the filming of the RTÉ Television documentary 'Patrick Collins - A View On Painting', first broadcast on 3 April 1985. It was produced by Seán Ó Mórdha. A still from this shoot was used to illustrate an RTÉ Guide article on the programme published on 29 March 1985.
Born in County Sligo, Collins exhibited widely both nationally and internationally throughout his life. He received the Guggenheim Award in 1958 and was elected a Saoi to Aosdána, the publicly funded body for the honouring of Ireland's writers and artists, in 1987.
