ART HISTORIAN

O’Connor is an art historian specializing in the progress of Irish art within historical, economic, social and political contexts in Ireland and abroad in the twentieth century.

Research, writing and publishing are vital activities for any art historian, and O’Connor finds those aspects, along with teaching, hugely enjoyable. But there is far more to her work. O’Connor might give a public lecture on day, and the following she could be writing a catalogue note for an exhibition of contemporary art, offering guidance on conservation, or hanging a private collection of work. She is interested in providing access to historical material and will offer guidance on what to do with old boxes of papers, photographs and general ephemera. O’Connor oversees the RHA archive on a voluntary basis during the academic year to encourage and facilitate inter-institutional access and collegiality.

One of the most exciting aspects of O’Connor’s work is identifying and authenticating paintings and drawings by Irish artists in general, and by Seán Keating in particular – and she has made some exciting finds in this regard. You’ll find further information on Lectures, Research and Archives on this tab and reports about forthcoming events on the News and Events page.
