A unique opportunity for all lovers of Archaeology, Geology, History, Botany, Antiquities and Art. The Crawford Art Gallery invites you to Stones, Slabs and Seascapes: George Victor du Noyer’s Images of Ireland
George Victor du Noyer was then employed by the newly-formed Geological Survey of Ireland. George Victor travelled by foot around Ireland in particular the south-east corner of Ireland documenting Irish geological features and societies. He also followed the railway tracks that were being built at the time and much more.
In celebration of Du Noyer’s extraordinary achievements, and to commemorate the bi-centenary of his birth, the Crawford Art Gallery will host a major survey exhibition, featuring over one hundred and fifty watercolours and drawings and watercolours of landscapes and coastlines, particularly of Antrim, Wexford, Waterford, Cork and Kerry, while in the Botanic Gardens, are exquisite watercolours of Irish apple varieties, roses and other botanical specimens. Opening in November 2017 and continuing until the end of February, 2018, the exhibition will be curated by Peter Murray, former Director of the Crawford Art Gallery, in collaboration with Petra Coffey and the Geological Survey of Ireland, Stones, Slabs and Seascapes: George Du Noyer’s Images of Ireland will feature loans from the collections of the Royal Irish Academy, the National Museum of Ireland, the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, the Geological Survey Ireland, and the National Archives. A full colour catalogue to accompany the exhibition will feature articles by Peter Murray, Siobhan Fitzpatrick, Peter Harbison, Petra Coffey, and Nigel Monaghan.
