Until 31 December. This ongoing exhibition sees the presentation of some of the finest works in the collection of Ireland's National Gallery, including a selection of European works from the early renaissance through to the mid-20th century.
Highlights from the Irish collection include important works by Hugh Douglas Hamilton, James Barry, William Orpen and John Lavery, all of whom left their mark on the development of Irish art from the 18th century onwards.
A selection of works from the gallery's Prints & Drawings collection are on show too, with works by artists such as Jean-Antoine Watteau, Daniel Maclise and Edgar Degas.
These delicate works on paper will be displayed for only a number of months at a time but the upside is that the range of works on show will be rotated often, meaning regular visitors can enjoy more of this collection. Paintings by Jack B. Yeats are on view in the Yeats Room.
Mon-Sat 09.30-17.30 Thurs 09.30-20.30 Sun. 12.00-17.30
