Hugh Lane Exhibition – Prints of the First World War
24 September, 2014
A new exhibition, ‘Efforts & Ideals: Prints of The First World War’ is currently taking place at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Parnell Square North.
The exhibition features 66 works from 18 artists and were donated to the gallery in 1917. They depict scenes from the battle and domestic fronts. The works were commissioned by the British Government in 1917 to bolster public support for the war in the face of horrific loss of life and have never been exhibited in Ireland until now. ‘Efforts & Ideals follows the success of last year’s ‘Dublin Divided’ which marked the centenary of the Dublin Lockout and admission is free.
