Permanent Exhibition

Renaissance to Romanticism draws together many of the finest pre-1900 Irish, British and European paintings in the Ulster Museum collection. Spanning the 1500s to the late 1800s the works have, for the first time, been arranged regardless of geographical borders. This presentation includes familiar and well-loved paintings, and works which have rarely been on display.

Since 2016, the art collection has been enriched by a series of major acquisitions. To celebrate these, and to show them in context, the art galleries have been re-orientated to give a continuous narrative from the 15th to the 21st century.
