Patrick O’Connor was a brother of the artist, Roderic O’Connor. He lived variously in London and Dublin before settling in Palm Beach Florida, near his brother Roderic, where he died in in 1997.
Seamus Burke referred to O’Connors’ portraits as having “the fire of truth, he excels in getting the likeness, the expression or the grace of an attitude…His realism is strong and direct…”
