This is the first full-colour introduction to Irish painting. It brings together a carefully selected, stimulating and stunning display of paintings and details, creating at once an important picture book and a useful history of Irish painting.
Dr Brian P. Kennedy's selection and his essays on the sixty-five painters included reflect his contention that Irish talent has been as evident in the visual arts as it has been in the world of literature.
Using over one hundred images from private and public collections, his survey results in a comprehensive history revealing the major developments in Irish painting between 1640 and 1953.
The extensive bibliography provides in itself a much-needed resource for anyone interested in Irish painting.
