Directions, please see National Museum of Ireland website.
Geological Survey Ireland is pleased to be associated with the upcoming exhibition of the work of George Victor Du Noyer (1817 – 1869) entitled Stones, Slabs and Seascapes: George Victor Du Noyer's Images of Ireland at the National Museum of Ireland. The exhibition was shown last year in the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork.
Du Noyer worked at the Geological Survey Ireland from 1847 until his death in early 1869. His observational skills, attention to detail, and acquired scientific knowledge meant that he became a well-respected geologist and was responsible for the early geological surveying of sections of Ireland. His work for government agencies including the Geological Survey, Ordnance Survey and the Botanical Gardens is both beautiful and scientifically accurate and we are delighted that his landscapes depicting geological features and details from his field sheets and notebooks make up a large portion of this exhibition.
The exhibtion will run from June 6th to September 30th, 2018. For details, see National Musem of Ireland website.
To mark the exhibition, GSI created an online story map of the works of George Victor Du Noyer.
A beautifully presented hardback book accompanying the exhibition is for sale in the GSI shop at a cost of €20.
GSI also runs every year a photo competition named after Du Noyer, see details.
