Join us for this online talk about the Anne Yeats Collection, highlights of which is currently on display in our exhibition, Anne Yeats: The Everyday Fantastic.

In 2002, following the death of his sister the painter and stage designer Anne Butler Yeats (1919–2001), Michael Yeats gifted her extensive collection of sketches, etchings and paintings to National Gallery of Ireland. This generous donation which features theatre designs and drawings of various locations across Ireland, are the basis of the exhibition Anne Yeats: The Everyday Fantastic. This month, Donna Rose, Fellow, ESB Centre for the Study of Irish Art at the National Gallery of Ireland will discuss a selection of key works and the importance this collection.

The Tuesday Talk and Tea series is an informal discussion about an aspect of the collection or an exhibition. It involves a short illustrated talk followed by a discussion with the audience.
