The Art of a Nation:
We were pleased to present this exhibition, our first to include Irish paintings from the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is coming up for a century since the art dealer Hugh Lane presented his important exhibition of Irish art at the Guildhall in London which was certainly the first, and sadly, perhaps, the last to showcase Irish painting of all periods on such a scale.
Three Centuries of Irish Painting
Pyms Gallery presented this exhibition as a modest effort to recapture the breadth of ambition of Lane's show.
"The art of a nation is one of the ultimate facts by which its spiritual health is judged and appraised by posterity, and in many cases when all else has disappeared the clue to a whole civilisation may be traced through fragments of pottery, sculpture, or other artistic manifestations which may remain."
Please note that this is only a selection of exhibited paintings. In addition we have published a catalogue to accompany this exhibition which details all the works shown.
