Resurrecting forgotten talent

My friend and fellow medievalist Shane Lordan is involved in a project to generate awareness of and appreciation for the Cork artist Samuel Forde. Forde’s Fall of the Rebel Angels is actually one of the finest pieces in the Crawford Art Gallery and if you are ever in the city you should swing by for a quick look. In the meantime, check out the Samuel Forde project and discover a short-lived genius.
