Corrections

The artist Kenneth Webb, whose latest exhibition of paintings is currently at the Kenny Gallery, Galway, was born in 1927 and not in 1917, as stated last week.

The highest price achieved at auction in Ireland for a painting by Gerard Dillon was €200,000 for Omey Island Race Day at
De Veres on June 10th, 2008, not, as stated, €85,000 for his Italian With Fowl at Adam’s in 2011.
