Revolutionary States: Home Rule & Modern Ireland

24 May - 21 October. 100 years ago an act passed by the British parliament made provision for self-government in Ireland, within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

However due to the outbreak of world war one, and subsequent developments in Ireland, the Third Home Rule bill was never implemented. The Hugh Lane commemorates the bill's centenary with an exhibition exploring its political and cultural impact.

Taking visitors on a visual journey of this turbulent era of Irish history, the exhibition features over 70 paintings, sculptures and drawings from the collection of the Hugh Lane and from the Ulster Museum.

Included in the show are many of the country's best-known portrait painters such as William Orpen, John Lavery, Sarah Purser and Sarah Cecilia Harrison, while the landscape artists include Jack B. Yeats, Grace Henry, Seán Keating and Paul Henry.


Tue-Thur 10.00-18.00. Fri-Sat 10.00-17.00. Sun 11.00-17.00
