I have an oil painting by Roland but can find very little biographical info about him. This one is an Irish scene, people dancing on the roadside, oil on canvas, 19.5 x 23 inches. Can you tell me anything about him?

Answer
Hello Jeremy,

Where have you looked?  Any book on Irish artists has information on him.  If you are only looking online you will not find much for he was active long before the Internet was even dreamed of.  I suggest asking the auction house where you purchased the work, James Adam's, to see if they have anything they can email you.

Cheers,, Brent
