For the first time, a selection of thirty paintings that once belonged to Chester Beatty will be on display in the Chester Beatty Library. The paintings are among some ninety works presented by Beatty to the Irish nation in 1950, shortly after his move to Ireland from London. Over the following years, he gifted a total of almost 400 paintings, drawings, miniatures and sculptures, which today form part of the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Ireland.
