Description: Tralee: Churchill House Press for the National Gallery of Ireland, 2009. 32cm., hadcover, 416pp., 329 illus., most in color. Exhibition catalogue. Publisher's summary: Although Thomas Roberts (1748-1777) is justly regarded as the finest Irish landscape painter of the eighteenth century, he is still little appreciated outside specialist circles. This important new publication aims to make his work more widely known and to explore the richness of his landscape art. Roberts died at the age of just 28, having fled Ireland for Portugal to seek respite from the consumption that haunted his last days. This detailed study publishes many previously unknown works by Roberts, greatly increasing his recognised oeuvre, but it also examines the world of his patrons, who included many of the leading figures of eighteenth-century Ireland.
