This display presented a unique opportunity to view the ten exquisitely coloured and highly imaginative illustrations by Harry Clarke which were gifted in 2008  to the National Gallery of Ireland. These intricately detailed illustrations, all in pristine condition, were executed for Hans Andersen's 'Fairy Tales', published in 1916 by Harrap's of London.

The exhibition was extended to 20 September 2009.
