Event description

Description

The Cork sculptor John Hogan was born at the turn of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and became Ireland's most distinguished Neo-classical sculptor. According to his biographer John Turpin, he was:-

"The sculptor who typified resurgent Catholic Ireland, and his early contract with the learned Bishop Murphy laid this foundation."

Many of his important sculptures in marble and plaster, are in the Crawford Gallery's collection.
