About this title


Dust jacket notes: "Contrary to the widely held belief that the art of stucco decoration in Ireland was mainly the work of foreigners, this sensitive and scholarly study proves the existence in Dublin of several generations of skilled artificers who had practised their craft from an early date. This first authoritative and richly illustrated publication, covering the elegance of Rococo plasterwork in Dublin, must remain unique. C. P. Curran has lived a lifetime with this subject. Added to the fascination of his detailed analysis, his memory recreates much of an art, falling rapidly to beetle and bulldozer." Hardcover, 7.75 x 10 inches, 124 pages, 177 illustrations (4 in colour), Bibliography, Index, Appendices listing contemporary plasterers.
