Just a 10-minute walk from St. Stephen’s Green is the National Gallery of Ireland, home to some of the finest works of art the country has to offer. Masterpieces from the Collection is a special presentation of some of the finest works in the Gallery’s collection, now open in the Beit Wing and Millennium Wing (rooms 1 – 10). It includes a stunning selection of paintings from the European collection, from the early Renaissance through to the mid-twentieth century. Highlights of the Irish collection map the development of Irish art from the eighteenth century onwards and include key works by Hugh Douglas Hamilton, James Barry, William Orpen and John Lavery.
These displays also feature a selection of works from the extensive Prints & Drawings collection. Given the nature of the collection of works on paper, this display will be changed every few months to allow regular visitors to enjoy more of this collection.
A number of paintings by Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957) are also on view as part of the Masterpieces exhibition, and will be rotated on a regular basis to allow visitors more access to this extensive collection.
