Samuel Forde: Visions of Tragedy

Samuel Forde: Visions of Tragedy
CORK  •  Crawford Art Gallery  •  Ongoing
This exhiibition focuses on Samuel Forde (1805-28) as an early student of the Cork School of Art and a product of the wider visual arts culture of the later Georgian period. Central to the exhibition is an in-depth analysis of Forde’s unfinished masterpiece, Fall of the Rebel Angels (1828), in conjunction with his preparatory sketches and excerpts from his diary. It also considers the influence of artists, writers, and material from the School itself to deconstruct Forde’s works and contextualise his creative and intellectual significance.
