A New History of Ireland, Volume VI


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the history of visual arts and society in Ireland during the period from 1850 to 1900. It explains that, in the second half of the nineteenth century, significant changes took place in the fortunes of the visual arts in Ireland. The patronage of the arts dwindled, and even the applied arts, for which the country had been renowned in the eighteenth century, ceased to flourish. In addition, many landed aristocracy chose to migrate, taking their fortunes with them, and some of the best Irish artists decided to work in England.
