Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane has the foremost collection of modern and contemporary art in Ireland and is believed to be among the first galleries of modern art in the world. The Gallery is also significant for its association with the Nobel laureate W.B. Yeats. The Gallery's prodigious collection which includes works by Renoir, Monet, John Lavery, Walter Osborne, Roderic O'Conor, Mary Swanzy, Norah McGuinness, Seán Scully and Francis Bacon, spans an enormously fruitful period in modern and contemporary art and these lectures will offer opportunities for exploring insightful perspectives on landscape, figuration, portraiture and abstraction.

The lectures will discuss the Gallery's magnificent stained glass artworks by Harry Clarke; the Francis Bacon studio; sculpture by artists including Edgar Degas, John Kindness and others; socially engaged and political art; Irish artists abroad; women artists in the Hugh Lane's collection as well as an opportunity for viewing Impressionist masterpieces in the Gallery spaces.

The course will be delivered by Jessica O'Donnell, Head of Education and Community Outreach at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and experienced and knowledgeable art historians from the Hugh Lane's lecturers: Jessica Fahy, Anne Cormican and Sarah Dunne-O'Connell.
