Literature:

Niamh O'Sullivan, Irish Times 2 October 2010

In the immediate aftermath of the Famine, at about twelve years of age, Mulvany emigrated to the US where he became a phenomenon, and where he remained actively involved in the Clan na Gael movement. In 1876, General Custer's command was annihilated on the Little Big Horn by Sioux warriors. Mulvany spent two years on Custer's Last Rally (1881), one of the most celebrated paintings of its time. It toured America for seventeen years, drawing huge crowds and making Mulvany a fortune. Mulvany was one of the first artists to go to the frontier where he specialised in painting Western scenes. One of his few Irish subjects was The Battle of Aughrim, which was recently brought back to Ireland and sold by The Gorry Gallery. Works by this once internationally celebrated artist are extremely rare.

Niamh O'Sullivan, Professor Emeritus of Visual Culture (National College of Art and Design).
