Seán Keating In Focus

Thursday 25th June 2009 - Sunday 4th October 2009

Seán Keating was born in Limerick in 1889 and was a popular and important, if controversial figure as an artist, teacher, writer and broadcaster in twentieth-century Ireland. His career spanned seventy years and while he was celebrated for his paintings of the Irish political situation between 1916 and 1924, iconic images of the Shannon Scheme and his representation of the people of the Aran Islands, this work is but a part of his oeuvre.

The exhibition will examine many of the most popular and several of the more obscure aspects of the artist’s career from 1907 to 1977 using iconic images alongside unfamiliar and previously unknown paintings and drawings.

The exhibition will include 33 works, as well as items from the private family papers. Works are mainly borrowed from leading private collections. Included in the exhibition are works that have never before been exhibited in public.
