Silhouettes and Miniatures

Richard Crosse, ‘Reverend Dr Henry Barnard’

Silhouettes and Miniatures – The Mary A. McNeill Bequest
1 – 31 January 2009
Print Gallery

This year the Annual Turner exhibition was complemented by a display of seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century miniatures and silhouettes, which were bequeathed to the Gallery in 1985 by Mary A. McNeill, a notable Belfast collector and historian.  This display featured exquisite portraits by Richard Crosse, Henry Bone, and Augustin Édouart.

A brochure, written by Niamh MacNally to complement this special display was on sale in the Gallery Shop. A free lecture series took place throughout January.
