28 March - 28 June 2009. Waterford-born artist Thomas Roberts (1748-1777) is rated amongst the finest Irish landscape painters of the eighteenth century. Visitors to the National Gallery are offered the chance to see 50 examples of his exceptionally detailed paintings in the first major exhibition of his work in over 30 years. Specialising in capturing the now familiar pastoral scenes of Dublin's surrounding countryside as well topographical views of Ulster, Roberts was a truly gifted technician and master painter. He trained at the Dublin Society Schools and painted for most of his life in Ireland. Admission to the exhibition is free.
