We are thrilled that Deborah has chosen to show the Symphony of the Soil at the Grainstore, don’t miss it – it will be life changing.' - Darina Allen

After Paul Henry

‘AFTER PAUL HENRY’ is a collaborative project by archaeologist and photographer Brian MacDomhnaill and painters Gentian Lulanaj and Paul McKenna.
 
Paul Henry (1876-1958) is Ireland’s most celebrated landscape painter. His depictions of the west of the country in particular have become synonymous with a romantic view of Ireland: unspoiled and traditional. Apart from the universal appeal of the images there is also a real sense of an artist engaging with a landscape and delighting in its drama, textures and hues.
