||George Bernard Shaw An Anniversary Tribute|
UNTIL DECEMBER 2006
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of playwright, George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950), whose bequest to the Gallery in 1950 has made him the institution's most generous financial benefactor. This in-focus show, presented in the form of a series of documentary panels and portraits, examines Shaw's relationship to the Gallery from an early age, his work as a music critic and his support of the Hugh Lane pictures.
An accompanying illustrated brochure is available from the Gallery Shop.
Tea with George Bernard Shaw: the Gallery will celebrate Shaw's
150th birthday with a special after-noon event on Wednesday 26th
July, from 2pm-3.30pm.
