After one of the busiest auction seasons in years, Adam’s is pausing for summer and its St Stephen’s Green saleroom is hosting the traditional loan show – now in its 15th year. “Irish Women Artists 1870-1970” features more than 100 works – painting and sculpture – on view in the non-selling exhibition. They have been loaned from private collections – north and south of the border – and the free event gives the public access to works that cannot normally be viewed.

All the most famous Irish women artists are represented – including Sarah Purser, Mildred Anne Butler, Rose Barton, Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone, Norah Mc Guinness, Letitia Hamilton, Grace Henry, Lady Glenavy and Estella Solomons – alongside many lesser known or long-forgotten artists.

The excellent catalogue is likely to become a collector’s item and is indispensable to anyone with an interest in the history of women in Irish art.
