Curator Comment:
Margaret Stokes’ Early Christian architecture in Ireland, (1878) contributed significantly to Irish visual cultural studies in 19th-century Ireland. Richly illustrated with engraved topographical views, ancient archaeological sites and details of architectural construction and decoration, the volume was a reflection of a burgeoning Irish cultural awareness which demanded informed, accessible textual and illustrated sources.
Note on artwork:
These images are highly representative of many of the illustraions included in Stokes' 'Early Chrisitan Architecture in Ireland'. Care is taken to record all facets of the decorative carvings, whilst the engraver has ensured that sufficient tonal variance is created to articulate each element's three dimensional form.
