Reception follows the talk
Peter Murray has diligently acquired recent Irish art for the Crawford. He is author of Three Centuries of Irish Art, a book highlighting over 100 works from the Crawford art collection. He is co-editor of Vol. V. of the recently published Yale University Press Art and Architecture, a major multi-volume publication that documents Irish art history from medieval times onward.
The Crawford’s holdings in 18th and 19th century art closely parallel The Art Institute of Chicago’s exhibition, which opens on March 17, Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690-1840. The View of Cork from Audley Place by John Butts, circa 1750, from the Crawford’s Collection is such an example.
