Glebe House was home for nearly thirty years to renowned landscape and portrait painter Derek Hill. Years of Pilgrimage is an evening of selected work and film installations that explore Hill's early career as a stage designer, his love of travel and music and the influence they had on his collection and the rich decoration of his home. Originally known as St. Columb’s the 1828 Regency-style house is decorated with William Morris textiles, and collections of Islamic and Japanese art. The full collection includes three hundred works by leading twentieth century artists such as Pablo Picasso, Evie Hone, Georges Braque, Louis le Brocquy, Graham Sutherland, Auguste Renoir, Jack Butler Yeats, Oskar Kokoschka, Patrick Swift, James Dixon, Charles Brady, Hokusai Katsushika and Hiroshige. The temporary installations and the exhibition have been designed for a dark winter’s evening and as a tribute to the legacy of Derek Hill. This restaging of the collection has been co- curated by Adrian Kelly, Eilís Lavelle and Orla Mc Hardy.
