Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300179243, Hardcover)

In five handsome, deeply researched volumes, Art and Architecture of Ireland provides an authoritative and fully illustrated account of the art and architecture of Ireland from the early Middle Ages to the end of the 20th century. Each volume has its own expert editor or editorial team and covers a specific area or chronological period. More than 250 scholars from around the world, who represent a broad range of disciplines, contribute texts that range from thematic and general essays to articles on techniques and historical developments, biographical entries, bibliographies, lists of artists, and comprehensive indexes. Historical documentation combines with the best of current scholarship to make this the most comprehensive and ambitious undertaking of its kind. The volumes explore all aspects of Irish art and architecture—from high crosses to installation art, from Georgian houses to illuminated manuscripts, from watercolors and sculptures to photographs, oil paintings, video art, and tapestries. This monumental work provides new insight into every facet of the strength, depth, and variety of Ireland’s artistic and architectural heritage.
