EXHIBITION OF PICTURES AT SCHOOL OF ART
‘An interesting collection of works by the late Mr. W. A. Mulligan (1861-1919). A.R.C.A. [Associate of Royal College of Art, London] is now on view in the Sculpture Gallery of the School of Art. As Headmaster of the School for many years, he achieved distinctions as a teacher and an artist.
Many of his portraits of prominent citizens are well known and reveal a thorough and masterful spirit in painting. In landscape he exhibits the same fidelity to nature as well as conscientious attention to detail. His pictures of the mountainous districts of Cork and Kerry and Pretty Ballyshannon [County Donegal],the home of the poet [William Allingham (1824-1899)], are attractive examples of the picturesque in our own country. Several find rendering of the beauty of North Wales recall a sketching ground favoured by many celebrated artists. A few studies of Continental scenery, still life group, and an important flower study, deserve attention for their unusual excellence.’
