Introduction to the Art and Architecture of Ireland (AAI)

Art and Architecture of Ireland is an authoritative account of Ireland’s artistic and architectural heritage from the early Middle Ages to the end of the 20th century. This five-volume set combines historical documentation, lively essays from more than 250 experts, and color illustrations.

Art and Architecture of Ireland is published by the Royal Irish Academy. The ebooks are available exclusively through JSTOR and contain the same content as the print versions—including all 2,500 images.

Art and Architecture of Ireland Vol 1 Volume 1: Medieval Rachel Moss, Editor
An unrivaled survey of all aspects of the rich and varied visual culture of Ireland c.400–1600. Based on many years of original scholarly research, the book contains over three hundred lively and informative essays and is magnificently illustrated.
Art and Architecture of Ireland Vol 2 Volume 2: Painting Nicola Figgis, Editor
More than three hundred entries provide biographical information on Irish painters; all are based on original research, much of it undertaken in hitherto unexplored archives. There are also nearly forty thematic essays considering relevant stylistic and contextual subjects.
Art and Architecture of Ireland Vol 3 Volume 3: Sculpture Paula Murphy, Editor
Biographies of individual artists and analytical assessments are augmented by a series of thematic essays establishing a context for the practice of sculpture throughout the country north and south.
Art and Architecture of Ireland Vol 4 Volume 4: Architecture Rolf Loeber, Hugh Campbell, Livia Hurley, John Montague and Ellen Rowley, Editors
The most complete survey of architecture in Ireland ever published, this volume covers all aspects of Ireland’s built environment. The volume challenges and expands the traditional understanding of Irish “architecture.”
Art and Architecture of Ireland Vol 5 Volume 5: Twentieth Century Catherine Marshall and Peter Murray, Editors
An examination of not only the works of art created in twentieth-century Ireland but also the critical contexts from which they came. This volume covers the work of recent conceptual and digital artists as well as that of those who used more traditional media.
