One of Ireland’s leading art galleries, the Jorgensen Gallery, located in central Dublin, shows a broad range of contemporary art, with paintings and bronze sculpture from Irish and international artists.
Ib Jorgensen, one of Ireland’s top fashion designers, originally founded Jorgensen Fine Art in 1992 in his fashion salon, housed in an elegant Georgian building on Molesworth Street in Dublin city centre. Jorgensen Fine Art quickly established a reputation as one of the leading art galleries in Dublin, with on average ten exhibitions per year featuring paintings by the leading names of 20th century Irish art, in addition to paintings and sculpture by contemporary Irish and international artists. Since then, the gallery moved premises a number of times, and has now returned to a Georgian building on Molesworth Street and re-opened as the Jorgensen Gallery.
The Jorgensen Gallery is a salon style gallery, specializing in contemporary art with paintings and bronze sculpture from Irish & International artists displayed in a room setting elegantly furnished with selected antique furniture, lamps and vases.
The gallery also stocks 19th/20th century paintings by some of the leading Irish and English Artists of that period. Paintings by artists such Walter Osborne, Evie Hone, Norman Garstin and Sarah Purser, examples of whose work can also be seen at the National Gallery of Ireland, are regularly shown.
