Themes in Irish Art 1



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 individualised summarised histories but rather considering how aspects of Irish visual history are connected and have evolved over time. Lectures will include the identification of key works from 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 cognisant of its place within a broader European perspective.

Lecturer: Dr Angela Griffith and academic staff from the department of History of Art and Architecture.
