The Hugh Lane Gallery Dublin


The Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin


The Hugh Lane Gallery is the oldest gallery of modern and contemporary art in Dublin. The original collection was donated by Sir Hugh Lane in 1908 to the city of Dublin and the collection has grown ever since.


The Hugh Lane Gallery exhibits great collections of paintings, sculptures and drawings of modern art, including the first impressionist paintings in any public collection across Britain and Ireland. The Gallery also acquired Francis Bacon’s studio and archive.
