More than three hundred entries provide biographical information on Irish painters of the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; all are based on original research, much of it undertaken in hitherto unexplored archives. There are also nearly forty thematic essays considering relevant stylistic and contextual subjects (such as 'collecting'). The book contains hundreds of fine colour illustrations and much information not available anywhere else.

The Art and Architecture of Ireland volumes, published for the Royal Irish Academy and the Paul Mellon Centre, are an authoritative and fully illustrated account of the art and architecture of Ireland from the early Middle Ages to the end of the twentieth-century.
