Mary Swanzy (1882-1978) was a pioneering figure in Irish Art who witnessed the birth of Modern Art and after 1914 exhibited at the Paris Salons alongside those artists who are now household names.
She mastered the academic style of painting at a young age and her work rapidly evolved through different styles: Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism, Symbolism and Surrealism; each of these interpreted and transformed by her in a highly personal way.
Over 70 works will be on display in this fascinating exhibition, initiated by the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and curated by Seán Kissane. The exhibition aims to reintroduce audiences to the artist’s extraordinary achievements and reinstate her as a Modern Irish Master.
