Daniel O'Neill was known for his expressionistic style and his contribution to the development of the Irish art scene with his distinctive use of colour and form.
O'Neill's work was deeply influenced by the landscape and people of his native Ireland. He often depicted scenes from everyday life, focusing on the struggles and hardships of the Irish people. His paintings were characterized by the use of vivid colours and bold, expressive brushstrokes, which helped to convey the emotional intensity of his subjects.
The artist was also an important figure in the Irish art world, and his work helped to inspire a new generation of Irish artists. He was a member of the influential Dublin-based group, the White Stag Group, which included other important Irish artists such as Louis le Brocquy and Patrick Scott.
