Landscape and Environment in Irish Art with Yvonne Scott
Landscape art has a long provenance but it has never been static; over the centuries, it has reflected views on the land, from title and sovereignty, to nurture or to leisure, and from the aspirations of national identity to the questions of climate change. Landscape has held a vital place in Ireland, both in the life of the people, and in its representation in art and culture. In this talk, change over time, and its significance in the contemporary environment, are demonstrated through a representative selection of examples including the distinctive imagery of the West of Ireland and the Burren landscape. Yvonne Scott is Associate Professor at History of Art Department, School of Histories and Humanities at TCD.
