This lecture will focus on the exhibitions of Old Masters, held in Dublin from 1814 until 1832 where many paintings from private collections were on display. These exhibitions were organised by the Royal Irish Institution which was formed in 1813 and surviving catalogues reveal a fascinating view of the extensive range of artworks on view to the public in Dublin during the late Georgian period.
