Bram Stoker-Chrisopher Lee-Nosferatu-Aidan Hickey

This 2012 portrait of Bram Stoker by Dublin artist,

Aidan Hickey, was painted for the 134th Annual Exhibition of the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club and appears here by the kindness of Mr. Hickey and the Club, to mark the 2012 Centennial of Bram Stoker's death.

Bram Stoker shared a lifelong interest in the arts with his siblings and was one of the founding members of the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club. The history of the club, more about the 2012 exhibition and portraits by Mr. Hickey of Irish writers Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde, and Colm Toibin can be found at

The portrait hangs at the Dublin Writer's Museum on

Parnell Square.
