This chapter examines the developments in visual arts and society in Ireland during the period from 1900 to 1921. This period saw a simultaneous increase and falling off of interest in the visual arts. The three key developments during this period include Hugh Lane's founding of a gallery of modern art, the revival of Irish artistic crafts, and attempts to reform art schools including the R.H.A. and the Metropolitan School of Art.
