Irish Artists Abroad

The significance of Britain and France as major sources of patronage and culture, drew many artists from Ireland where there were limited opportunities. During the nineteenth century, France was recognised as a major hub of artistic development, and many artists travelled there during the course of the century.   As mentioned elsewhere, these artists introduced into their imagery new ideas relating to theme, colour, and method of expression, in order to express the new ideas that presaged Modernism.
