Daniel O'Neill: Romanticism and Friendships

To mark the centenary of the Northern Ireland artist Daniel O’Neill’s birth, the OPW are presenting a retrospective of his work at the Farmleigh Gallery opening in May 2020. The exhibition is being curated by art historian Karen Reihill with the majority of the works being borrowed from private collections, many unseen in public in over 50 years, as well as paintings from the collections of IMMA, University of Limerick and the Ulster Museum.

This exhibition will be Daniel O’Neill’s first retrospective since 1952 which was held at the Belfast Museum and Art Gallery (Ulster Museum) which then recorded a record attendance for the time. It is hoped that this exhibition will be an opportunity for the public to reexamine the life and work of this artist, who was highly regarded by the critics in the post war years and whose works were in popular demand until his death in 1974.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive catalogue detailing the life of Daniel O’Neill and that of his other innovative friends that make up the Belfast Boys,Gerard Dillon and George Campbell amongst other artist friends Colin Middleton, Arthur Armstrong, Nano Reid and Nevill Johnson all of whose work will also feature in the exhibition. It is hoped this exhibition will lead to a reassessment of Daniel O’Neill’s place in the history of Irish art.

The Farmleigh Gallery is one of Dublin's hidden gems located in a corner of the Phoenix Park on The Farmleigh House Estate. Admission and car parking are free. Open daily Tuesday - Sunday 10:00 - 17:00 but closed for lunch 13:00 - 14:00.

‘Daniel O’Neill : Romanticism and Friendships’ opens on 10th May and runs until 24th July 2020. At The Gallery, Farmleigh House, White’s Road, Phoenix Park, Dublin 15. Admission is free.
