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.
