Two Thursdays: 21 and 28 May. During these illustrated lectures, art historian Jessica Fahy will explore artworks currently on view as part of The Lane Legacy. She will both discuss how Hugh Lane founded the Municipal Gallery of Modern Art at a pivotal time for Irish art and society, and highlight the particular role women played in the formation of the Gallery, not least through raising money and donating artworks to the collection. Fee €20, includes tea/coffee break. Booking through Eventbrite required.
