18th Century Portrait Sculpture in Dublin.
David Bridgwater's Blog Posts list prepared for the Dublin Sculpture Website of Dublin City Council .

Probably amateurish, not exhaustive and by its very nature the posts will need to be udated and added to as more knowledge becomes available.
This blog has been written in an almost stream of consciousness fashion, but I do try to get my facts straight and to provide references - as with any visual subject I believe it is most important to provide good photographs and pictures to illustrate the subject.
Please forgive any omissions and mistakes.
I am happy to discuss the subject with any interested parties and am particularly keen to obtain any historical photographs.
