Decorative plasterwork in Georgian Ireland and Britain: styles and practices of design and making
Dr. Conor Lucey, a specialist in Decorative interior in Europe 1660 - 1830 will discuss Decorative Plasterwork in Georgian Ireland and Britain and its influence in American decorative plasterwork. He will explore the relationship between style, material, and technique and the importance of ornament in the early modern interior.
Dr. Lucey will draw from examples of Ireland’s most important 18th-century master stucco craftsmen including Robert West. West’s one-time residence at Twenty Dominic Street in Dublin’s northside is one of the best examples of the period (see photo) It has been restored, and can still be visited today.
