In this attractive, full-colour book, Maureen McMahon selects a range of pictures from Irish Art from the earliest times up to the present day. She then gives a descriptive commentary on the piece and finally moves towards a gentle spiritual reflection on each piece. The reflection is printed on the page facing the artwork itself.
Ideal as a gift, or as an aid for personal reflection and meditation.
