Summary "...The Irish: A Treasury of Art and Literature, is a lavishly illustrated overview of Irish culture. It reveals the breadth of the Irish experience through selected texts and images that mark momentous developments in art, religion, politics, and everyday life...The more than 200 illustrations provide an historical perspective of the many facets of Irish art, from the magnificent metalwork of ancient times, embodied in gold jewelry, book shrines, and religious artifacts such as the Ardagh Chalice; to the thriving contemporary crafts of silver, crystal, fabric, and stained glass. Paintings from many periods depict the mysterious island beauty that is the creative wellspring for Irish artists and writers."--Dust jacket.
