Lecture by Dr Éimear O’Connor: John Millington Synge: Art and the Rest

In the late 1890s, John Millington Synge took his camera to the Aran Islands to photograph the people and their traditional way of life. This is a fully illustrated talk revealing the nature and extent of Synge’s photographs, and their subsequent use by the painter, and by painter Jack B. Yeats. Synge’s love of the Aran Islands, and its influence on Irish artists Harry Clarke and Seán Keating, will also be discussed in the context of both the cultural and the nationalist revolution that took place at the time. Dr Éimear O’Connor HRHA is an art historian, curator, lecturer, visual arts adviser, and management consultant to the arts sector.

Sponsored by Tom and Peggy McManus.
