BYMIER BULL WALL BY MARIE FALLON
This appears to be a modified version of what I saw last year as "the scream" element has been added since then.
Artwork: 'Bymier Bull Wall' by the Bymier Art Group. Located beside the Wooden Bridge, Clontarf Road, Dublin 3.
The wooden bridge was originally built to give access to the Bull Wall during the construction phase. It was to be demolished once the wall was completed. However the locals objected, as they had started to use it for recreational purposes.
According to many locals the Bull Wall was designed by Captain Bligh (of H.M.S. Bounty fame) but it was actually designed by the Ballast Board’s engineer and it was constructed between 1820 and 1823 in order to help the drainage of the harbour and increase the draught for ships at low tide. Bligh had made a detailed navigational survey of the whole of Dublin bay and suggested in 1801 that a wall be built on the north side of the river parallel to that to the south.
The Scream is the popular name given to each of four versions of a composition, created as both paintings and pastels, by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910. The German title Munch gave these works is Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature). The works show a figure with an agonized expression against a landscape with a tumultuous orange sky. Arthur Lubow has described The Scream as "an icon of modern art, a Mona Lisa for our time."
