A selection of works from the RHA collection, chosen by Eithne Jordan RHA Keeper, will be showing in the Dr. Tony Ryan Gallery this February. Members of the Academy are required by statute to present the Academy with a diploma piece for the collection and over the years, along with gratefully received gifts, donations and some acquisitions, the Academy now houses a collection which is a reflection of the proud history of the Royal Hibernian Academy. Works included in the collection date as far back as Williams Ashford’s Lover’s Leap, The Dargle River, 1796 to the more recent Dorothy Cross, Girl with Whale Bone, 2019.
Friday 14 February, 1pm: RHA Collection walk through with Eithne Jordan, RHA Keeper.
