Upon leaving the National Gallery in Dublin during Easter week 1916, its registrar James Stephens was struck by 'the rumour of death and war' that gripped the air: one hundred years on, the National Gallery will evaluate these seismic historical events in its principal contribution to Ireland's Decade of Centenaries in both a powerful new exhibition and stunning book, 'Creating History: Stories of Ireland and Art'. The National Gallery's exhibition comprises 54 paintings spanning the 17th century to the 1930s, depicting or inspired by episodes in Irish history from the arrival of St Patrick to the establishment of the Free State. Jan Wyck, James Wheatley, John Lavery, Sean Keating, William Orpen and Jack B. Yeats are some of the major artists represented--their masterworks are lavishly reproduced to stunning effect alongside essays from today's leading art critics. Tom Dunne, Ruth Kenny, Ró:isí:n Kennedy and Roy Foster are some of the exemplary contributors to feature, delivering fascinating assessments that situate the Easter Rising and Ireland's claim to independence through the historical significance and artistic value of Ireland's major artistic works. While the exhibition will run from 8 October 2016 to 17 January 2017, 'Creating History: Stories of Ireland and Art' is set to be the National Gallery's enduring tribute to the events of 1916, and will constitute a lasting legacy.
