A View of College Green, Dublin
Artist: Roberts, Thomas Sautelle
Medium: Aquatint with etching, coloured
View of College Green in Dublin. The green is named after Trinity College which stands on the east side of the green and can be seen in the right of this picture. The green became a very fashionable place for 18th century ‘society’ to meet, walk and ride. Before the college was built the green was known as Hoggen Green from the "Hogges" or hog-backed hills in the region. In the centre of the picture is the Irish National Bank- this building was formerly used as the parliament building. On the left is the entrance to the Irish House of Lords.
