Cost of Revolution: The Life and Death of an Irish Soldier
Sept. 28, 2019 through March 19, 2020 | Free with Museum admission
What can a life tell us about an era? Follow the untold story of Irish soldier and artist Richard St. George, whose personal trauma and untimely death provide a window into the entangled histories of the American Revolution of 1776 and the Irish Revolution of 1798. The art he created and commissioned provides a unique perspective of the physical and emotional costs of these revolutionary moments. As a result of detective work by the Museum’s curators, the art and artifacts from St. George’s life and death will be reunited in Philadelphia from Ireland, England, Australia, and the United States to tell the story.
