In 1998 Norman Teeling was commissioned by An Post to produce 10 large oil paintings depicting the 1916 rising timeline at the GPO.
These 10 works were hung on the walls of the public office for 7 years until their removal in 2005. Much to the dismay of Dubliners and historians such as Pat Liddy, the paintings have never been reinstated.
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Through perseverance and dedication to the cause, Dermot O'Grady of The Green Gallery had arranged for all 10 paintings to take pride of place in a stunning 1916 Exhibition on the Top Floor. St. Stephens Green Ctr Dublin 2 during April 2016. Opened by none other than Pat Liddy himself, the paintings had found an important rebirth and were made available to be enjoyed by everyone once again.
They are now back in the basement of the G.P.O. If anyone is interesting in discussing the purchase of all 10 paintings please contact Dermot on 085-1988441
PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE
This suite of 10 paintings have now become available to the art market with permission of the artist, in Giclée print format.
