The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife: Conserving a National Treasure

In October 2010 the National Gallery of Ireland embarked on an ambitious programme to conserve The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife by Daniel Maclise (1806-1870)- one of Ireland's best-known paintings. This book tells the story of this endeavor, which took three years and involved researchers across Europe working with the Gallery's Conservation Department. This project addressed and resolved a series of unique and monumental challenges presented by the painting, resulting in successfully preserving the cultural value of this significant work for future generations.

Jack B Yeats : Painting and Memory

Coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the birth of one of Ireland’s most important artists, this exhibition explores the role of memory in Jack B. Yeats’ life and work. From his earliest forays into oil painting, Yeats was unusually reliant on memory and retrospection. Memories of childhood in Sligo inspired many of his works, and particular motifs – music and horses prominent among them – recur in his paintings.
