For a limited time only, Crawford Art Gallery’s annual exhibition of Harry Clarke’s watercolours and ink drawings returns!

OTHER WORLDS explores Harry Clarke’s extraordinary capacity for conjuring images from literature and bringing often romantic or macabre worlds into being. From his delicate blue-tinged watercolour studies for The Eve of St Agnes to the pen-and-ink illustrations for the tales of Edgar Allan Poe, Clarke translated his vivid imagination into remarkable works that have been in the collection for almost a century.

The exhibition also draws together works by other artists – including Pauline Bewick, Stephen Brandes, Salvador Dalí, Jan de Fouw, Stanley William Hayter, Brianna Hurley, Daniel Maclise, William Otway McCannell, Xaver Schilling, Noreen Spillane – to addresses a broader sense of world-building in visual art.

OTHER WORLDS is a timely celebration in that 2023 marks the centenary of Clarke's illustrations for Marie Rogêt and The Fall of the House of Usher, and watercolour studies for The Eve of St Agnes.
