Ireland's Painters, 1600-1940


This illustrated survey of the history of Irish painting encompasses the entire span from the Middle Ages to the mid-20th century. The volume includes both well-known and virtually unknown artists, Irish artists who worked abroad as well as in Ireland, and major foreign artists who came to Ireland and worked there for extended periods. Among the more than 350 works reproduced in colour are many paintings from notable private collections which have not been exhibited to the public. Drawing on the combined experience of leading Irish art authorities Anne Crookshank and the Knight of Glin, the book presents a roll call of important Irish painters, from the talented Garret Morphy of the Restoration period to William Scott and Louis LeBrocquy of our own time.
