Dublin City Gallery: The Hugh Lane
19.5 x 24.5 cm
A compelling and illuminating guide to one of Ireland’s foremost collections of modern and contemporary art, this book provides engaging commentaries on 120 of the most notable works in the gallery’s collection. Masterpieces by such Impressionist and Barbizon painters as Puvis de Chavannes, Manet, Monet, Degas and Renoir are explored alongside works by their Irish counterparts Walter Osborne and John Lavery, and by the English Victorian painters Burne-Jones and Millais. Special attention is also given to the gallery’s unique collection of twentieth-century Irish art, including pieces by Jack B. Yeats and Sean Keating, and to post-war European art.
