DUBLIN, IRELAND.- The National Gallery of Ireland will present Treasures from the North: Irish paintings from the Ulster Museum, on view from March 14 to September 16, 2007. The Ulster Museum is closed for major refurbishment work until 2009, presenting an opportunity for the National Gallery to host an exhibition focusing on 60 masterpieces from their rich Irish collection. This will feature major figures of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries such as George Barret, Nathaniel Hone and William Ashford; some of Ireland's most distinguished twentieth century artists including Sir John Lavery, Paul Henry and Jack B. Yeats; as well as a number of Ulster painters represented by William Conor, John Luke, Charles Lamb and Frank McKelvey. The selection concludes with works by more modern artists such as Basil Blackshaw, Patrick Scott and TP Flanagan. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the show.
