‘The Hamilton Sisters - their Homes in Paintings and Photos’ Lecture by Stephen Odlum

About this Event

The Hamiltons, whose family had originally come from Scotland, were brought up in Hamwood, their ancestral home, just outside Dunboyne, Co. Meath. The fifth generation to live there was a family of 10 children, six girls and four boys. Of the six girls only one was to marry, and the remaining five, that included the artists Eva (1876- 1960) and Letitia (1878-1964) Hamilton were to live and work together for much of their lives. This presentation charts the journey through the seven different houses they lived in during a period of intense political, social and economic change in Ireland, from the end of British rule to the establishment of a newly independent Saorstat and beyond. Following a career in the food industry, Stephen Odlum embarked on a programme of further education in fine art. Following a series of courses through IPAV on fine and decorative arts, he completed a M.A. in Design History and Material Culture in N.C.A.D in 2013. He also graduated with a MPhil. in the History of Irish Art from Trinity College, Dublin in 2018, writing his dissertation on the life and works of Letitia Hamilton. He has recently published a book on the family, entitled – Eva, Letitia and The Hamilton Sisters – Class, Gender and Art
