White stag group


London artists centered around Basil Rakoczi and Kenneth Hall, the group formed in 1935 and moved to Ireland in 1939 until after World War II. In Ireland it became the vehicle for introducing modern art ideas. It was involved in the "Irish Exhibition of Living Art", and in 1944 the Group held the "Exhibition of Subjective Art". Participants referred to their philosophy as Subjectivist Art because in a variety of styles, often non-conforming with each other, it was an exploration of psychology and modernist ideas.
