Teatime Talks

Where: Online via Zoom

Art Historian Kathryn Milligan will examine depictions of inner-city Dublin from Flora Mitchell’s book Vanishing Dublin (1966).

Mitchell’s book captured a changing city, and showed streets like Henrietta Street in a time of transition. Born in the United States, and remembered in particular for her mid-20th-century paintings of old Dublin architecture, Mitchell studied art at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art and exhibited work in the Royal Hibernian Academy.
