Forty-eight examples of stonework, metalwork, handwork, and painting celebrate the extraordinary breadth and beauty of the Irish artistic tradition that spans thousands of years. From massive stone burial structures and High Crosses embedded in the Irish landscape to Bronze Age metalwork and the resplendent Early Christian manuscript, The Book of Kells- from the landscape paintings of George Barret and James Roberts to the rural scenes of Paul Henry and Nathaniel Hone the Younger- from the narrative brush of Jack B. Yeats and the haunting images of Lady Elizabeth Butler and Patrick Hennessy, the myth, romance, and history of Ireland are well represented in these examples. There are also the pioneering works of such women artists as Susannah Drury, Sarah Purser, Mainie Jellett, and Rita Duffy, among others. A general introduction and essays accompanying each of the works provide a historical overview and commentary. Color and black-and-white plates. 9 1/4 x 12 1/4.
