'Thomas Roberts (1748-1777)'. (Exhibition Poster)

Thomas Roberts (1748-1777)
28th March - 28th June 2009.

Rooms 6-10, Beit Wing.

This was the first exhibition of Roberts’s work since 1978 and gave visitors an opportunity to view some of the recently discovered additions to the artist’s oeuvre and a chance to reunite the celebrated set of four views of Carton, dispersed for almost a generation. This exhibition represented an opportunity to showcase Roberts’s exceptional ability as a supreme technician with subjects ranging from topographical views of some of Ireland’s most celebrated and picturesque locations, to idealised landscapes, dramatic storm scenes and sets of views of some of Ireland’s finest demesnes.
