Drawing on her own research into Irish country furniture, combined with her expertise about paintings of Irish interiors, Claudia Kinmonth tells a richly illustrated tale of life in the Irish farmhouse. Recent research into small furnishings like wooden noggins and horn spoons, illuminates detail, and the handling of objects will be part of the talk.
* Claudia will bring various objects along for handling, during the session and the audience is also encouraged to bring objects along for discussion afterwards. Claudia will also have some copies of 'Irish Rural Interiors in Art' (Yale, 2006) available to purchase and have signed on the day.
