Roderic O’Conor and the Moderns: Between Paris and Pont-Aven 

National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin

NOW CLOSED

The first in over 30 years to explore all of the media in which the Irish artist Roderic O’Conor worked, this exhibition assembles key paintings, drawings and etchings from the years O’Conor spent in Paris and Brittany, when he became a central member of the Pont-Aven school. It contains some 60 works, by O’Conor and by his Pont-Aven contemporaries, exploring how the school developed the style that would become known as Post-Impressionism, as well as the links that were forged between O’Conor and artists like Paul Gauguin, Maurice Denis, Émile Bernard and Vincent van Gogh, among others. Find out more about the Roderic O’Conor exhibition from the National Gallery of Ireland’s website.
