The Crawford Art Gallery’s annual exhibition of Harry Clarke’s watercolours explores the artist’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 created remarkable works.
