Hugh Lane Gallery

information about ireland  Dublin - Ireland, Dublin

Hugh Lane Gallery is housed in the former town house of the Earl of Charlemont. The Gallery's collection consists of contemporary art works from 19th cent to the present. It includes sculptures of Rodin and Degas, works by Courbet, Monet and Manet and numerous works of Irish artists.

Hugh Lane was an art dealer and set up his own gallery. He bequeathed his pictures to the National Gallery in London. Later on he added a rider to his will in which he said that some of his paintings should remain in Ireland. The rider was never witnessed and the tussle began.

After his death in 1915 (he was on board the Lusitania when it was torpedoed by a German submarine) his collection was divided between London and Dublin. 39 of his paintings are now in Dublin, 8 are in London and one goes backwards and forwards between London and Dublin.

The permanent collection includes a reconstruction of Francis Bacon's London studio, complete with the painter's personal belongings.
