Dublin and The Art Nouveau

Colorful, cheerful and inspiring. This is one of the places where literature, painting and bohemia come together in Dublin. It is the front of Bloom’s Hotel, in the heart of the Temple Bar district. The author of the beautiful painting is James Earley, born in Ireland in 1981 and whose family already has a tradition in the art of painting stained glass.

The inspiration for the hotel came from the Irish writer James Joyce, in his book Ulysses. James (the painter) did detailed research on the book, whose main characters are Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus. It is all inspired on the Art Nouveau, and it was also based on works by the artist Alphons Mucha, who painted at the same period of time that Joyce was writing Ulysses (1922 was published). The artwork at the hotel took one year to be finished. If you want to stay over there you will have to wait a little bit. Because of the pandemic, it will reopened just on 10th August. Luckily, we can see the wonderful artwork on the wall any time.
