These portraits capture a way of life that no longer exists and each chapter paints a picture of a bygone age.

While researching Irish Country Houses: A Chronicle of Change, David Hicks encountered beautiful portraits of former residents in aging mansions, with fascinating backgrounds. A portrait is never fully understood until put into context: the artist, the sitter, the time, place and circumstances of its creation. Granted access to galleries, private art collections and some of Ireland's great country houses, he collected wonderful stories and photographs.

Behind the faces are tales of happiness and misfortune, of royalty, politicians, literary and artistic figures, of scandals and hunt balls.

These portraits capture a way of life that no longer exists and each chapter paints a picture of a bygone age.
