About the Author:

Dr Sighle Bhreathnach-Lynch is an art historian, writer and former Curator of Irish Art at the National Gallery of Ireland (1998 2009).

Although her fascination with art began as a child, Sighle originally studied languages at UCD and later the Montessori education method. It wasn t until the age of 40 that she followed her true passion and returned to college to study for a diploma in the History of European Art as a mature student. Having won a scholarship in the diploma, Sighle studied art history at undergraduate level and went on to complete a PhD. She then became a lecturer at UCD, as well as a regular guide and speaker at the National Gallery of Ireland.

In 1998 she was appointed as the first curator dedicated exclusively to the Irish collections in the National Gallery s history. She retired 11 years later and continues to research, publish and lecture on all aspects of Irish art. She lives in Dalkey.
