More Irish Art than you could shake a stick at!

With the weather promised settled until well into next week there’s no excuse not to get out there and visit some of the Great Irish Art on show. Kicking off with The People’s Art on Stephen’s Green www.peoplesart.eu this Friday/Saturday & Sunday; Merrion Square Art  www.merrionart.com on Sunday,  and the Dublin Painting & Sketching Club Annual Exhibition runs at the Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown County Hall in Dun Laoghaire from the 8th-21st May.

For those of you who prefer to view your art from the couch, there’s always my new site which is growing in leaps and bounds. I have been so busy adding to it that I’ve completely lost track of how many artists are now listed. The scarcity of information on each artist is gradually being rectified – it’s purely a matter of getting time to collate the hundreds of pages of research that I’ve already accumulated while continuing to gather more information. With some living artists it’s like pulling teeth. Check out the latest additions below.

Cash in the Attic at James Adams “At Home” Sale

A painting carrying an estimate of just €500 to €800 sold in James Adam’s salerooms yesterday (9th April) for €120,000.

Jesus Wearing the Crown of Thorns‘ a 19th century oil on copper panel, measuring 13″ x 9.5″ contained in an ornate carved and gilded frame. slipped beneath the auctioneer’s radar, but with the availability of online viewing and bidding it caught the attention of overseas buyers. That it has gone abroad is of no great loss to Ireland, and the vendors and auctioneers are laughing all the way to the bank! That is unless it appears at Sotheby’s or Christie’s with a seven-figure price tag.
