Includes essays by Angela Bourke, John T. Koch, Margaret MacCurtain, et al. An exhibition of Irish paintings spanning a century, with essays exploring the subject matter, artists, and historical-cultural context. From the Foreword: “The century of Irish art represented…encompasses the stylistic diversity and range of subject matter that preoccupied Irish painters from the latter part of the Victorian period, through the evolution of modern Irish art in the first half of the twentieth century. The nineteenth century genre scenes included in this exhibition reveal the penchant of the age for stylized views of peasant life whilst the equestrian scenes attest to the enduring Irish passion for racing.”
