National Gallery of Ireland hosts an exhibition of little seen Roderic O'Conor prints.
Forty rare prints of works by the acclaimed Irish artist will go on display. Born in Roscommon Roderic O'Conor was best known for his use of colour in painting but also experimented with etching. As only a small number of proofs were created from O'Conor's etchings the prints going on show at the National Gallery are exceptionally rare.
