The Hugh Lane Gallery Dublin has an exceptional history centred around the ground-breaking vision of Sir Hugh Lane. Hugh Lane held the first exhibition of Irish Art in 1904 in London and continued to innovate by endowing the Gallery with a unique and exceptional collection of modern art, including the first impressionist paintings in any public collection across Britain and Ireland. Sir Hugh Lane presented the collection to Dublin Corporation (now Dublin City Council) in 1908.

Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane, houses a superb collection of modern and contemporary Irish and international art.
