Molly Malone, Dublin City - 745 *** SOLD ***
An original painting of the Molly Malone statue outside St. Andrews Church and Tourist Office on Suffolk Street, Dublin.
The statue was commissioned in 1988 for Dublin's 1000th birthday . It originally resided at the bottom of Grafton Street (see my other painting of it here) but was moved here so that work could be carried out on the new Luas cross city Tram line. The famous 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. Dubliners have christened her 'the Tart with the Cart'.
In the background is O'Neills Pub and eatery, a huge traditional old style pub .
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.
