...nationalism that characterized much of early 20th-century Irish art, especially after independence and throughout the mid-century. This nationalism was more generally expressed through a kind of Celtic revivalism and a neo-Hiberno-Romanesque style that typified the work of Irish artists in the substantial number of large churches and religious buildings commissioned on into the 1950s, best seen in the figurative work of stone-carvers such as Albert Power and Seamus Murphy. Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, a generation of Irish painters such as...
