Molly Malone, Dublin City - 745
An acrylic painting of the bronze statue of Molly Malone with her wheelbarrow which now stands outside St. Andrews Church and the Bord Failte Tourist Office on Suffolk Street, Dublin.
Sculptor Jeanne Rynhardt was commissioned to make the piece in 1988, a celebration of Dublin's 1000th birthday anniversary. It was originally set at the bottom of Grafton Street but was moved here in order to facilitate work to be carried out whilst installing a new Luas Tram line. As the legend and song about her goes ' she wheels her wheelbarrow through streets broad and narrow, crying cockles and mussels , alive-alive-o' . Legend has it that she was a fishmonger, as were her father and mother, plying her trade in Dublin's fair city. Locally she is known as 'the Tart with the Cart'.
In the background is O'Neills, a huge traditional old style pub with mahogany interiors, partitions, nooks and crannies. To the left is the big H&M clothing store.
This painting is available as a Limited Edition run of 200 prints using Epson Archival inks on supreme quality Hahnemuhle Traditional Fine Art paper. See dropdown menu above to see size, price and framing options.

I love the print I received of Molly Malone. It brought back many good memories of our trip to Dublin. Chris captured the scene beautifully, just as I remember it . I am so proud to display it In my home for all to see. I can’t wait to receive my next print that I recently ordered. Love His Work! Eileen Kempf USA
Love this print of Molly Malone. The colors in Chris’s paintings are fabulous. I never get tired looking at his paintings. This is my fourth one. I am addicted!
Molly Malone is in a particularly special part of Dublin for me, so when I found this painting I immediately fell in love with the colours and tones. I love this painting and delighted to have found something in the location of Dublin.
I bought this painting as a gift for my mum and dad for their anniversary and they absolutely love it. My mum is from Dublin, so this reminds her of home. She has asked for another painting to go by it’s side. Really beautiful!
