MYSTERY & IMAGINATION
Harry Clarke Watercolours

30 November 2019–
19 January 2020

This annual exhibition follows the success of Dreaming in Blue: Harry Clarke Watercolours and invites visitors to get close to the celebrated Irish artist’s original ink drawings and watercolour studies.

Clarke’s incredibly detailed works illustrate scenes from Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination and John Keats’ beloved poem “The Eve of St Agnes”.

Presented alongside works by fellow artists Margaret Clarke, Seán Keating, and William Orpen, the exhibition will also situate Clarke within his immediate milieu. Delve into the imagination of a true artistic visionary!
