Mary Swanzy (1882-1978) was a pioneering artist, as evidenced in the IMMA retrospective exhibition Voyages. Her level of achievement, world travel and original thinking is unmatched in Irish art. We are delighted to be joined for this event by Patrick J Murphy, a personal friend and collector of the artist. Also a pioneer, both in business through his international work with Guinness and Irish Malters, and in visual culture through his association with ROSC, The Arts Council of Ireland and as an art collector, Patrick and Mary shared a great friendship. He was a real champion of her work, and indeed the RTE Archive interview featured in the current exhibition was initiated by Patrick.

We are delighted to have this opportunity for our Members to explore these stunning works in the company of someone who has such a connection with the artist. To book your place at this event contact our Membership officer [email protected] Please note that you must be a Member to attend this event. Membership starts at €50 for the year. Join Today


About the Artist

Mary Swanzy 1882–1978

Mary Swanzy (1882-1978) is a unique Irish artist. Her level of achievement, world travel and original thinking is unmatched in Irish art, yet this is the first retrospective of her work in 50 years. She witnessed the birth of Modern art in Paris before the First World War and her work rapidly evolved through the different styles of the day, each of them interpreted and transformed by her in a highly personal way.
