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.
Dr Kathryn Milligan is the author of Painting Dublin: Visualising A Changing City 1886-1949. She has guest lectured at galleries around Ireland, including the National Gallery of Ireland, the Hugh Lane Gallery, Limerick City Art Gallery and the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork.
Teatime Talks is a series of talks inspired by the history, people and surroundings of 14 Henrietta Street. Do you have a memory of Dublin’s tenements or know someone who does? Whatever your connection, we would like to hear from you.
