Painter; began his career as an interior designer but emerged in the late 1940s with paintings based on the Crucifixion and on Velazquez's Pope Innocent X as one of the most powerful and disturbing figures in modern art. Born like Bacon in Dublin, Gray moved to London in 1958 and painted several portraits of distinguished Irishmen.

Given by Aubrey Beese, 1975.
