Visual Politics examines the development of Irish subject matter in painting from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century. A close examination of individual paintings and works of art by both Irish and non-Irish artists defines the structure of the book which is a closely argued series of thematically-based chapters, exploring how Ireland has been represented visually. The focus is on the interaction of art and politics. Well known artists such as James Barry and David Wilkie feature, but more in the context of how they referred to Ireland in their work than in terms of an overall assessment of their oeuvre.
