This section features articles on sculpture and sculpture in Dublin. Currently, we have Professor Paula Murphy’s ‘Looking at Public Sculpture in Dublin’, which provides an overview of sculpture in the city and includes many illustrations of important works. Over the weeks ahead, in partnership with the Royal Irish Academy, Sculpture Dublin will publish a series of essays and artists’ biographies from Sculpture 1600-2000, Volume 3 in the RIA’s 5-volume publication, Art and Architecture of Ireland (Yale, 2014).
