This authoritative volume covers the city’s Rococo plasterwork. “This first authoritative and richly illsutrated publication , covering the elegance of Rococo plasterwork in Dublin, must remain unique. C. P. Curran has lived a lifetime with this subject. Added to the fascination of his detailed analysis, his memory recreates much of an art, falling rapidly to beetle and bulldozer.”
