This week’#s #ThreeonThursday takes you to The National Gallery of Ireland, recommends a live show from Norah Jones and highlights a documentary on Irish history that is well-worth seeing.

Caravaggio – Is this Ireland’s Favourite Painting?

The story behind Caravaggio’s Taking of Christ and how it came to sit in The National Gallery of Ireland is an extraordinary story of good luck and expertise. This short video explains why the Italian painter is so important in the history of art and gives you a little bit about his very colourful life in Rome and Naples. It also looks into the story of how it went ‘missing’ for years before turning up in Dublin.

Norah Jones – Live on Facebook – Every Thursday

If you want to hear a soothing voice in these uncertain times, then you might contemplate the voice of Norah Jones. The chanteusse is live every Thursday on her Facebook Page and her singing is as sweet as ever.
