Friday 22 September 2023 – Life and Art in Georgian Dublin

Lecturer: Tom Duncan

Dublin in the eighteenth century was the second city of the just emerging British Empire. From Dublin, the English monarch’s Viceroys, usually English noblemen, presided over a glittering court at Dublin Castle, and stood at the apex of a society renowned for its liveliness and hospitality. This world, seen at close quarters through contemporary accounts, paintings, engravings and the evidence of the buildings themselves, many of which have miraculously survived to this day, will give an insight into an unforgettable place and age.
