Courting Favour & The Court of Criminal Appeal
with Sinéad McCoole
In her illustrated lecture Courting Favour & The Court of Criminal Appeal Sinéad McCoole will reflect on the life of the Irish born artist Sir John Lavery (1856-1941) who painted High Treasonl and his evolution from orphan to wealthy society painter. She will explore the reasons he painted this work at the height of his fame, which was neither a formal commission nor a piece of iconography commemorating an Irish martyr.
Sinéad McCoole is a historian, curator and author who is on the Government's Expert Advisory's Group on the Decade of Centenaries. She is currently Curatorial Advisor Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.
