The catalogue written by Kevin V. Mulligan, to accompany the Irish Georgian Society exhibition 'Vain Transitory Splendours': The Irish Country House and the Art of John Nankivell at City Assembly House, 5 September to 28 October 2018.

Kevin's words – at once poetic, elegiac, and polemical – combine so perfectly with John’s haunting drawings that I confidently predict that this book will become a classic of Irish country house literature’.
From the Foreword by Sir David Davies
