‘SEARCHING FOR A NEW JERUSALEM’, THE GLUCKSMAN

DATES: Now until 23rd March 2014
WHERE: The Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Cork


Searching for the New Jerusalem presents the original preparatory drawings designed by the Victorian architect William Burges (1827-1881) for Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral in Cork. Commissioned to rebuild the Cathedral in 1863, Burges would go on to design the architecture, stained glass, statuary, mosaics and furniture of the building. This exhibition demonstrates how William Burges’ drawings vividly portrayed biblical stories, offering a unique insight into his working methods. From his renditions of Genesis to the story of Cain and Abel to the betrayal and resurrection of Christ, and following the narrative layout that Burges created for Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Searching for the New Jerusalem reveals a unique artistic and architectural vision.
Curated by Richard Wood.
