A History of Irish Art 1

This lecture will look at the creation of images of social elites and working people, as well as the subordination of the picturesque in terms of the assertion of property rights and entitlements. It will also examine the philosophical theories of George Berkeley and Edmund Burke, as reflected in paintings of the period.

Tickets can be reserved for the whole series or for each lecture individually.
