11 June - 20 September 2009. The Cubist-inspired works of Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone and May Guinness feature in the second part of The Collection Revealed series. As artists they are considered to be the main exponents of Irish modernism. Mainie Jellett's 'Decoration' (1923) was among the first abstract paintings ever shown in Ireland. Evie Hone was celebrated for her stained glass and came from a famous Irish artistic family. May Guinness was older than Jellett and Hone and had a great effect on both artists. Their paintings will be shown alongside works by Albert Gleizes and Andre Lhote, both influential Cubist painters with whom the Irish artists studied in Paris. The exhibition is curated by Jessica O'Donnell and admission is free.

Tues-Thurs: 10.00
