Seán Keating’s An Allegory, painted in 1924, addresses the divisive nature of the Irish Civil War. The painting is central to a new display at the National Gallery of Ireland that marks the conclusion of the Decade of Centenaries. The exhibition highlights the artist’s role as political commentator and chronicler, showing several key portraits of nationalist figures along with William Orpen’s Holy Well.
