The lecture on the 24th September transported us to the National Gallery of Dublin. After ensuring that we appreciated 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.
