This exhibition will take place in the National Gallery of Ireland. The museum is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year and in this occasion the museum asked some Irish writers to get inspired by the collection of the gallery.
The museum asked 56 Irish writers to find inspiration in the paitings and explore and explain their feelings about art through the selected art work. The exhibition Lines of Vision: Irish Writers on Art is an illustrated anthology of the new stories, essays and poems. The Irish writers were asked to choose a picture from the collection to explore about love, dreams, family, loss, privacy, places and memory. The exhibition will presents all the paintings chosen by the 56 Irish artists and the most famous European painters and their art works such as Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet and Bonnard and some of the best Irish painters as well such as James Arthur O’Connor, Paul Henry, Jack B. Yeats, Mary Swanzy and Gerard Dillon. The Lines of Vision: Irish Writers on Art will be seen in Dublin at National Gallery of Ireland.
