This volume sets out to investigate how various forms of authority in Irish culture and history have been challenged and transformed by a crisis situation. In literature and the arts, a reappraisal of the authority of canonical authors - and also of traditional forms, paradigms and critical discourses - principally revolves around intertextuality and rewriting, as well as the wider crisis of (authoritative) representation. What is the authority of an author, of a text, of literature itself? How do works of fiction represent, generate or resolve crises on their own aesthetic, stylistic and representational terms? The Irish Republic has faced a number of serious crises and challenges since it came into existence. In recent years, the collapse of the Celtic Tiger has acted as a catalyst for change, revealing various structures of political, religious and economic authority giving way under pressure. In Northern Ireland, the Good Friday Agreement has led to major developments as new authorities endowed with legislative and executive powers have been set up. In its focus on the subject of authority and crisis in Ireland, this book opens up a rich and varied field of investigation.

19. Sir John Lavery [1993]

Book
232 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 28 cm.
This is a biography and critical analysis of Sir John Lavery (1856-1941), best-known as one of the "Glasgow Boys" and one of the most "French" of the British impressionists. Born in Belfast in 1856, he studied at Haldane Academy in Glasgow, and from there he travelled to France where he came under the influence of Bastien-Lepage. In 1885 he achieved international recognition for "The Tennis Party", a rendition of the sons and daughters of late-Victorian industrialists at play. After the International Exhibition at Glasgow in 1888, Lavery took on commissions as a portraitist and "visual reporter". He was a highly skilled on-the-spot sketcher as well as a painter of carefully planned ceremonial portraits which reveal the profound effect of Whistler's influence. His sitters were members of the aristocracy, leading politicians and personalities from three generations covering the period from 1880 to 1940. Ever versatile, Lavery produced memorable images on his sojourns in Tangier and his travels to France, Switzerland and the United States. Despite advancing years he was a daring official war artist and a recorder of the struggle for Irish independence. Two notable trips to Hollywood and Palm Springs, just before his death, introduced him to the world of cinema.
