The National Gallery of Ireland, in Dublin, houses the national collection of Irish art and European master paintings. This summer, the National Gallery of Ireland presents an exhibition highlighting the intimate observations of the Impressionists and their circle. Impressionist Interiors features over 45 wonderful paintings and drawings by Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cassatt, Gauguin, Vuillard and Morisot from both the Gallery's collection and important European and US collections. As well as exhibiting key works from the 1870s and 1880s (Edgar Degas' "Sulking" and "Portraits in a Cotton Office (New Orleans)"; Edouard Manet's "Interior at Arcachon"; Mary Cassatt's "Lydia at a Tapestry Frame"; Paul Gauguin's "The Little Dreamer", the exhibition shows how artists such as Edouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard carried on the Impressionist legacy of 'intimisme' into the twentieth century.
