Irish Art Exhibitions

On the Road to Fontainebleu
(Sir John Lavery)

Oriel Gallery

Established in 1968 by Oliver Nulty, the Oriel Gallery is the oldest independent gallery of visual art in Ireland. Indeed, Oliver Nulty largely pioneered the exhibition and promotion of many Irish artists to art collectors both in Ireland and abroad. On the walls of the Gallery premises - a large Georgian house close by the National Gallery of Ireland - art collectors can see all the great Irish portraitists, landscape, still life and figure painters, as well as the cream of Irish contemporary abstract artists. Indded, the gallery has dealt with almost all of the major Irish painters of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and has an unrivalled experience of the Irish art market.
