Emer’s Week

2nd December, 2018

Frederic William Burton’s painting The Meeting on the Turret Stairs is so delicate that you can only visit it at the National Gallery of Ireland for two hours a week. A tweet by the gallery last week (@NGIreland) explained that, despite the painting’s vibrant hues, it’s actually a watercolour. You can view it in Room 20 on Thursdays between 5.30pm and 6.30pm and Sundays from 2pm to 3pm.
