This book surveys three decades of Irish art, focussing on the critical turning point that was the 1970s. It features work by 35 Irish artists with superb full-page illustrations and a short biography for each artist.

Although titled "Irish Art of the Seventies", with the majority of works dating from that decade, this book in fact spans three decades, with the earliest works dating from the late 1950s. The works, drawn mostly from the PJ Carroll and Gordon Lambert collections at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, show the development of Modernism in Irish art during years in which the image of Ireland began to be transformed from one of rural thatched cottages to a modern industrialised urbanised nation. The architects Scott Tallon Walker were key to this transformation, and the book features an extensive interview with Ronnie Tallon by Vera Ryan.

With the benefit of hindsight, the 1970s, and the years before and after, were heroic, unique and unforgettable years for Irish art.
