The lecture on 24th September transported us to the National Gallery in Dublin. After ensuring that we appreciate the attractions of the city of Dublin, Dr Maureen Park introduced us to the permanent collections in the gallery. There are paintings by European masters, including Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Monet as well as paintings by Irish painters maybe less well known to us. She skilfully interwove stories about the paintings and linked them to paintings in our own collections. The lecture was much appreciated and we look forward to hearing her again.
