About this event

An illustrated talk by Dr. Kathryn Milligan on depictions of Dublin City from the late 18th to mid 19th century.

Although a well-established subject in the history of art, depictions of the city or urban environment have long been overlooked in Ireland in favour of the rural and pastoral. Drawing on her publication, ‘Painting Dublin, 1886 – 1949: Visualising a Changing City’, in this lecture Dr Kathryn Milligan will explore the representation of Ireland’s capital city through the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, looking, for example, at works by Rose Barton, Walter Osborne, Harry Kernoff, and Jack B. Yeats.
