Over fifty acclaimed Irish novelists, playwrights and poets have selected pictures from the National Gallery of Ireland as setting-off points to explore ideas and tell stories about art, love, loss, family, dreams, memory, places and privacy. Both the artworks and the literary respones to them are wonderfully vibrant in their diversity. Each of the writers in Lines of Vision creates and connects vividly with other worlds - observed, remembered and imagined. Perceptive and, at times, deeply personal, their creative responses to pictures invite us to look at art in new lights and from different angles. With 60 illustrations.
