Discover a decade of new acquisitions – many on display for the first time – in New Perspectives. The Gallery holds Ireland’s national collection of art, a collection that is constantly growing and evolving through the addition of new works. These acquisitions augment and enrich the collection for the nation.
New Perspectives includes newly acquired Irish art, Western art, portraiture, works on paper, and archival material, featuring artists from Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) to Alice Neel (1900-1984), and Ilya Bolotowsky (1907–1981) to Mandy O’Neill (b.1968).
Works by Geraldine O'Neill (b 1971) and Diana Copperwhite (1969) are also included in the New Perspectives.
