“While the Gallery is temporarily closed, we have brought a selection of works from the exhibition Drawn from Nature: Irish Botanical Art online. We look forward to welcoming you to see the full extent of the exhibition, in the Gallery, when it reopens on 20 July. The exhibition will continue until 30 August 2020.
Drawn from Nature celebrates three centuries of Irish botanical art. The exhibition includes drawings, watercolours, prints, and illustrated publications dating from the 1700s to the modern day. The backgrounds, motivations, and methods of the artists exhibited are diverse. Yet all are connected by a shared desire to observe, record, and advance our knowledge of the natural world…”
