1 - 31 January 2010. The National Gallery of Ireland presents its famous 'Vaughan Collection' of watercolours by JMW Turner (1775-1851).

To compliment these works, the gallery is displaying 17th, 18th and 19th century silhouettes and miniatures painted in watercolour and enamel by artists such as John Comerford, Richard Crosse and William Grimaldi. Free admission.
