On Tuesday 5 June 2018, Koen Verbruggen MRIA, Director of Geological Survey Ireland, officially launched Stones, Slabs and Seascapes: George Victor du Noyer’s Images of Ireland, an exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, Dublin.
 
For over half a century, Irish artist and surveyor George Victor du Noyer travelled the length and breadth of the country to make drawings and paintings for the Irish Ordnance Survey and the Geological Survey of Ireland. Stones, Slabs and Seascapes, an exhibition of watercolours and drawings, was curated to mark the bicentenary of his birth.
 
Located on the ground floor of the National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History at Collins Barracks, Dublin, the exhibition features artworks from the collections of the National Museum of Ireland, Geological Survey Ireland, the Royal Irish Academy and the National Botanic Gardens.
