In the first video Prof. Oliver Botar makes a compelling case to explain how FitzGerald’s work is relevant to the way we see our immediate world due to Covid-19. The second video explores a little-known aspect of the artist’s private life that had significant consequences for his art. Thanks for bringing both of these aspects to light!
Thanks for these videos, very intriguing. I enjoyed watching them, learned something, and look forward to visiting the exhibition.
Thanks Jeremy! Hopefully you can come by soon!
