'At heart an academic text ... Painting Dublin is also a good read due to Milligan's engaging style and passion for her subject.'
'With over a hundred illustrations (59 figures and 45 color plates) the volume is a visual treat. Extensive endnotes reveal the research behind the book and the index includes useful thematic entries. [...] Painting Dublin combines a wonderful art exhibition and a stimulating walking tour through multiple Dublins past and
present. You may never walk down the same streets again.'
Irish Literary Supplement, Ciaran Wallace
'From chapter two on, you reach pages that are undeniably full of interest and zest, revelaing warmth for, and even enjoyment in, the works the author analyses.'
Irish Arts Review, Hilary Pyle
'This lucid book moves beyond conventioanl Irish art history and representations of Dublin [...] Painting Dublin challenges us to relect on a more open, interpretative and alternative understanding of how Irish visual identity was shaped.'
History Ireland, Sylvie Kleinman
'Painting Dublin is a valuable and refreshing addition to the literature on the city and to Irish art history. It uncovers fascinating insights into the relationship of visual artists to their maligned but much-loved metropolis.'
Museum Ireland, Roisin Kennedy -- .
