Among his most important works are the mosaic floors of the three vestibules and half-way landing of the entrance hall at the National Gallery, London, carried out between 1928 and 1952.(1) In Ireland he designed and executed the mosaics for the chapels of St Patrick (1948) and St Ann (1954) in Mullingar Cathedral.
