Ekphrasis: Writing & Art
Renaissance to Romanticism (2022/23)
Renaissance to Romanticism
Renaissance to Romanticism draws together many of the finest pre-1900 Irish, British and European paintings in the Ulster Museum collection. Spanning the 1500s to the late 1800s the works have, for the first time, been arranged regardless of geographical borders.

Our Ekphrasis Project has been featured in the Impact Magazine of Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. The collaboration took place in the 2021 Ekphrasis Project when none of the students at home or abroad had access to the gallery space. The short film showcasing the works is still available to view in our collection on QFT Player.
Hear all about it from our former Fulbright scholar, Professor Jenny Browne, and some of the participating students.
