Notes: Bloomsday Re-enacted The original watercolor painting is my interpretation of the first recorded re-enactment of Bloomsday on 16th June 1954, when five men got together in Dublin to attempt to trace the steps of some of the characters in Ulysses, on 16th June 1904, from James Joyce's novel. The five were Anthony Cronin, writer; Paddy Kavanagh, poet; John Ryan, author and publican; Brian O'Nolan, (aka Myles Na gCopalleen/ Flann O'Brien), comic author and satirist and a dentist named Joyce. These paintings are based on a photograph of them taken on Sandymount strand. They were unable to complete the full pilgrimage. This painting is now offered as a giclee print edition of 25, hand signed and numbered by the Artist, sent rolled and ready for framing.
