The Sculptors is the fourth of a series of six lectures on public sculpture in Dublin. The lecture was streamed online on 30 April 2021.
This lecture, which was filmed in the City Hall, introduces some of the major sculptors who worked in Dublin in the nineteenth century and their practice. The contrast between the career of a local sculptor (Thomas Farrell) and an absentee (John Henry Foley) is explored.
The lecturer, Paula Murphy, is a specialist in the history and theory of sculpture and has published widely on Irish sculpture. A UCD emeritus professor, she is a member of the Steering Group of Sculpture Dublin.
