The painting from the late 19th century (Evicted by Lady Butler, 1890, University College, Dublin) how Irish art had changed since the Famine years Evicted constitutes a new direction in Irish rural art. Portraying the after-effects of the destruction of the peasant woman's cabin, the beauty of the landscape (the Wicklow hills) complements the plight of the inhabitants. 'She too is a victim of historic exploitation, with no rights over the land she inhabits.'
