'Stones, Slabs and Seascapes: George Victor du Noyer's Images of Ireland' accompanied an exhibition of sketches and paintings by this nineteenth century artist, scientist and geologist who also wrote extensively on archaeology and antiquarian studies. Du Noyer produced over five thousand drawings, watercolours and sketches from the 1830s to the 1860s depicting many aspects of Irish life and landscape. His subjects included everything from geological and archeological sites, to shells and ships, apples and stone axeheads. Du Noyer's images formed part of the new awareness of Irish national identity that emerged in the early nineteenth century and much of the material he drew had not previously been recorded. Over two thousand of his images are digitised on the Europeana website and around one thousand are digitised on the Royal Irish Academy website. Du Noyer's work was exhibited at the Crawford Gallery, Cork and at the National Musem of Ireland in 2018, sponsored by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, the Geological Survery of Ireland, Carmel and Martin Naughton, and the National Museum of Ireland.
