in Dublin, until 16 January 2005. On the 100th anniversary of the Abbey, Ireland's national theatre, the National Gallery of Ireland has brought together an enticing selection of portraits and busts associated with the Abbey to mark the occasion. In 1899, Lady Augusta Gregory, WB Yeats and others established the Irish Literary Theatre which eventually became known as the Abbey Theatre in 1904. During its inaugural season, its foyer was graced with portraits by John Butler Yeats and since then the Theatre's collection has grown into an important body of work representing over 60 portraits of well-known personalities from the theatre. These depict members of the company, actors, writers, those involved in production as well as patrons, and provide a fascinating glimpse at the heart of 20th century Irish culture.
Address At the National Gallery (Milltown Wing, Room 20), Merrion Square West, Dublin 2. Admission free. More info: +353-16615133. Email: email@example.com
