Bealtaine: A Virtual Tour Of The Hugh Lane Gallery

Blanchardstown Library

This virtual tour of the Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery, led by Dr Maebh O'Regan, starts in the reception hall and briefly discusses the wonderful Georgian architecture. The tour will look at Hugh Lane as a collector and will visit work by the wonderful Irish stained-glass maker Harry Clarke, as well as artists including Manet, Degas, Monet, Renoir, and Morisot. Dr O'Regan will speak about the Irish artists who studied in Parish during the time of the Impressionists, as well as some English-trained, native artists. Then it's off to visit Francis Bacon's studio before the final stop at the Sean Scully gallery. Afterwards, there will be time for an audience discussion. Booking is required.
