Volume II


Volume II: Painters and Painting, 1600-1900

Volume II will include approximately 600 biographical entries of Irish painters. New research for the volume will include unexplored archival sources, contemporary newspapers and recently available electronic material. There will be an overall introductory essay and topics such as patronage, the art market and art institutions in Dublin, Cork and Belfast, as well as stylistic developments, will also be examined in thematic essays. The essays will not be exclusively about Irish Painters as ‘Visiting Artists to Ireland’ during this period, ‘Printmakers’, as well as ‘Frames and Frame makers’ will also be covered.
