Professor Fintan Cullen had an exciting day on 3rd April presenting his new publication to the President of Ireland and then a few hours later the book was launched by an Irish Government Minister.
Ireland on Show. Art, Union, and Nationhood (Ashgate, 2012; 978-1-4094-3109-1) analyses the impact of the display of art as a significant political and cultural feature in the make-up of nineteenth-century Ireland and also discusses how Ireland was viewed beyond its own shores, in particular in Great Britain and in the USA. This study moves beyond museums, to address the range of art institutions in Irish cities that displayed art and highlights the tension between unionist and nationalist viewpoints. Fintan Cullen uses the display of art to investigate the complexities of Irish cultural life before the founding of the Irish Free State in the 1920s.
