Crawford Art Gallery in Cork


Crawford Art Gallery, a National Cultural Institution and regional art museum for Munster, is dedicated to the visual arts, both historic and contemporary. Located in the heart of Cork City, beside the Opera House, the gallery is a critical part of Ireland’s cultural and tourism infrastructure, welcoming over 200,000 visitors a year.


The gallery’s permanent collection comprises almost 4,000 works, ranging from eighteenth-century Irish and European paintings and sculptures, through to contemporary video installations. At the heart of the collection is a collection of Greek and Roman sculpture casts, brought to Cork in 1818 from the Vatican Museum in Rome.


The collection is particularly strong in Irish art of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
