In 1988 approximately 1,200 Old Master prints were donated to the Royal Hospital Kilmainham (now IMMA) by Clare Madden. The collection includes works by Dürer, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Goya and many other innovative European printmakers from the Renaissance onwards. Following the death of Clare Madden in October 1998 the collection was augmented by the addition of a large collection of books containing prints by the English printmaker Thomas Bewick and his family bringing the total range of printed images to 2,000. Related items in this bequest include unusual versions of the prints on silk and one of Bewick’s printing blocks.
