Thomas Roberts (1748-1777) and His Patrons: A Tour of Georgian Ireland
This lecture, delivered by William Laffan, explores Roberts’s paintings of some of the most famous landscapes of Georgian Ireland, from Lucan, Slane, and Carton to the Casino at Marino, and Dawson’s Grove. He also painted more humble landscapes of small-town Ireland, of Ballyshannon, Belleek and Belturbet. Patriotism, ‘improvement’, emulation, exhibiting practices and the aesthetics of the ‘Picturesque’ are themes that will be explored to illuminate the artistic and social contexts that Roberts reflects and, on occasion, shapes.
The lecture will take place in the magnificent interior of Christ Church in Waterford, designed by Roberts’s father John.
