Themes in Irish Art I



This course presents a thematic introduction to Irish art, architecture and design in its broader international context. Subjects will be connected across periods and styles – the focus not on presenting summarised histories but rather considering how aspects of Irish visual history are connected and have evolved over time.

Lectures will include identifying key works in Irish art and architecture, addressing fine, applied and popular artforms. Throughout the course, Irish visual history will be discussed within its artistic, social and cultural contexts and will be cognizant of its place within a broader European perspective.

This course is led by Dr. Angela Griffith and other academic staff from the department of History of Art and Architecture at Trinity.
