About this event

Join us at the Embassy from 7th October to view ‘The Art of Negotiation: John Lavery’s Anglo-Irish Treaty Portraits’, a selection of paintings by renowned portrait-painter, Sir John Lavery.

In October 1921, Arthur Griffith and Michael Collins led a delegation to London to begin negotiations with Prime Minister David Lloyd George and the British Government, talks that would result in the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty two months later. ‘The Art of Negotiation’ tells the story of this key moment in the history of these islands.

The exhibition centres around Sir John Lavery's portraits of 14 major Irish and British political figures who were involved in the talks, including Arthur Griffith, David Lloyd George, Michael Collins, and Winston Churchill, as well as other influential figures from the time such as Éamon de Valera and Lady Lavery.

‘The Art of Negotiation’ will be on display in the Embassy from 7th October to 7th November, with paintings on loan from Dublin's Hugh Lane Gallery, the National Gallery of Ireland, and - courtesy of President Higgins - Áras an Uachtaráin.
