Irish Art Auctions have been a Dublin and London phenomenon and to a lesser degree Belfast and Cork, with few, if any, art auctions beyond these cities. Recognising this gap and aware of the rich artistic culture of Galway, Dr. Niall Dolan established Dolan's Art Auction House.
The auctions will introduce a wide range of contemporary, 20th Century and Victorian art to the market in Galway and the West of Ireland.
It has always been remarkable, at the Dublin and London Art Sales, that a very large proportion of Irish Art depicts life in the West of Ireland. Over the years, so many of our great Irish artists have sought inspiration from the people and landscape of the West. The establishment of Dolan's Art Auction House will draw important Irish Art back to the West of Ireland and enrich the cultural heritage of the West.
