Irish Art of the Seventies draws on existing works in the Museum’s Collection and new acquisitions from the PJ Carroll Collection. The exhibition includes 35 recently-acquired works from the PJ Carroll Collection, one of the formative influences in the development of the visual arts in Ireland, the PJ Carroll Collection is widely regarded as a pre-eminent collection of Irish art of the 1960s and ‘70s, providing vital support for many leading artists at a time when general interest in the visual arts was still quite limited. The exhibition focuses on important historic works from the 1970s by artists such as Felim Egan, Robert Ballagh, Gerda Frömel, Maria Simonds-Gooding, Michael Warren, Patrick Scott, Tony O’Malley and Michael Coleman.
The exhibition will be shown at the Crawford Gallery, Cork in 2007.
