National Art Gallery Trip

Sixth Year Art Students visited the newly refurbished National Gallery in Dublin, accompanied by Art teacher Mr Padraig MacCraith, the group was  given a guided tour of two exhibitions. The first exhibition presented an opportunity to look afresh at the work of Frederic William Burton (1816-1900) and to reflect on his lifetime achievement as a Victorian watercolour artist. Irish born Burton settled in London where he encountered the Pre-Raphaelite circle that influenced his taste and his art, as echoed in his highly finished watercolour, ‘Hellelil and Hildebrand, the Meeting on the Turret Stairs’ (1864).
The second exhibition of 40 prints and drawings by the German artist Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) was an opportunity for the students to discover this important artist who created almost 300 prints, around 20 sculptures and some 1450 drawings during her long career and is regarded as being among the foremost printmakers of the 20th century. The works in the exhibition, specially selected by the Gallery from the superb collection at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, allows visitors to reflect on the effects of war, in particular the grief left in its wake.
