Street Photography By William Murphy

THE WHITE LADY OF DUBLIN
Today I noticed something about this piece of street art on a utility cabinet. The were a few words that read as follows “R.I.P. White Lady Gallery” so I decided to Google “White Lady Gallery” and found the following message on Facebook: “The White Lady Art gallery is closing and no longer open to the public, but we'll still be covering art events and openings in Dublin via the website (www.whiteladyart.com). We want to thank everyone who has supported the gallery so far, and can't wait to meet new friends in 2015! Although we won't have a shop front, we'll be online and ready to bring you the latest news on up and coming, and established artists...see you all again soon! *White Lady Art team*”.

Now that I have mentioned the gallery I must explain that it was here that you could purchase hand painted versions of the ‘Lady On The Rock’ as known as ‘The White Lady Of [any local you desire]’.

In 2010 while out and about throughout the city I began to notice that in certain areas of the city many houses featured a white statue of a reclining nude [semi-nude] in their front windows [in many cases all of their front windows]. Officially she’s the ‘Lady On The Rock’ and she has spread at an amazing rate , beginning with her introduction to Dublin Mouldings, a supplier of fireplaces and plasterworks located on Parnell Street on the north side of the city.
