About this event

Celebrating Ulysses is a free exhibition marking the centenary of the publication of James Joyce’s ground-breaking book, and features 34 drawings and etchings by the German artist Günter Schöllkopf. Free entry.

This free exhibition (on view until 21 August 2022) celebrates James Joyce’s Ulysses, which was published in its entirety in Paris on 2 February 1922 – the writer’s 40th birthday. 34 works by German artist Günter Schöllkopf, presented by his sister to the National Gallery of Ireland, are on display for the first time. The Stuttgart-born etcher and illustrator held a lifelong fascination with Joyce. These striking drawings and etchings from the 1960s and 70s bring to life characters and episodes from the modernist novel, offering a new context in which to see Molly and Leopold Bloom, Stephen Dedalus and Buck Mulligan.

Opening hours: Mon: 11:00–17:30 / Tues–Wed: 09:15–17:30 / Thur: 09:15–20:30 / Fri–Sat: 09:15–17:30 / Sun: 11:00–17:30.
