The Derek Hill Collection

February 10 – March 18

When the late Derek Hill (1916-2000) gifted his home to the Irish Nation in 1981, it came with an extensive art collection. Now opened to the public as The Glebe House and Gallery, the collections holds works by leading 20th Century Artists such as Picasso and Braque, but its real brilliance lies in its connections between people and places – between Derek Hill and his exploration of the world around him. This exhibition took up many of these strands to draw out relationships between Tory and Italy, between Ireland and Japan. It includes many of the best pictures in Derek’s collection from Irish artists such as Camille Souter and Jack Yeats and International greats like Giogrcio Morandi, Kokoshka and Katsushika Hokusai.
