Mainie Jellet 1897-1944

ABSTRACT COMPOSITION Gouache, 19" x 15" (48 x 38cm).

After meeting up with Evie Hone at the Westminster School of Art, Jellett and Hone set off for Paris in 1920. Here they both worked at Andre L’hote’s studio. Around this time Jellett wrote “with L’hote I learned how to use natural forms as a starting point towards the creation of form for its own sake; to use colour with the knowledge of its great potential force, and the product work based on a knowledge of rhythmical form and organic colour”. In 1921, she moved into the studio of Albert Gleizes (1881-1953). Now she mastered the new technique, Translation and Rotation endowed painting-without-subject with a mobile rhythm. This wonderful work is a fine example of Jellett mastering this technique. 

See Theo Snoddy, “Dictionary of Irish Artists, 20th Century”, p. 216/217

Est. €6,000 – 9,000

10 Lady

Beatrice Glenavy RHA 1881-1970

A serEnade Oil on canvas, 18" x 26" (46 x 69cm), signed and dated 1933. Beatrice Elvery was the second of seven children brought up in comfortable surroundings in Foxrock. The family ancestors had originated in Spain. Beatrice entered art college in Dublin where William Orpen was the star attraction. In later years Orpen painted several portraits of her and used her as a model. In 1901 she won the Taylor Scholarship. In 1902 she exhibited her first work, a statuette of a boy at the Royal Hibernian Academy. She went on to exhibit approximately 200 works at the Academy. In 1912 she married Gordon Campbell, later 2nd Baron Glenavy and settled in London where she moved in a very artistic circle. She returned to Ireland after the war and concentrated mainly on her painting. She was to exhibit at the Royal Academy and Royal Scottish Academy as well as the principal Dublin Galleries over the following years. Her work has a wonderfully romantic, fairy like quality and this is a particularly fine example.

12 Evie

Hone HRHA 1894-1955

CONTINENTAL VILLAGE Oil on canvas, 26" x 36" (66 x 91.5cm), signed verso. A member of the distinguished Hone family, Evie was to become a victim of infantile paralysis which left her lame for the rest of her life. She became interested in pursuing a life as a painter from an early age. She was to excel in both stained glass, oil and gouache. She travelled to study in Paris with her lifelong friend Mainie Jellett and like Jellett studied under Andre L’hote and Albert Gleizes, having previously studied under Walter Sickert in London where she first met Mainie. This particular work almost certainly was executed in the early part of her painting career and may well have been exhibited in France where she held several exhibitions. She became preoccupied with stained glass from the early 1930s. A woman of great courage whom overcame her disabilities, both she and Jellett are major figures in Irish Art of the 20th Century. See Snoddy, Irish Artists, 20th Century p. 198/199.

21 Mainie Jellet 1897-1944

STILL LIFE Oil on canvas, 18½" x 15" (47 x 38cm), inscribed artist’s label verso.

Provenance: Private Collection, Dublin. To be sold with pencil study. Jellett started her artistic life at a very young age studying in Dublin under both Sarah Cecilia Harrison and May Manning. She was only fourteen when she made her first visit to France, a country that was later to play a key role in her development as an artist. In 1914 she entered the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art where Sir William Orpen was still teaching. In January 1917 she left for London and studied under Walter Sickert (1860-1942) at the Westminister Art School. Sickert was to have a very strong influence on her early work and this still life is from that period. Interestingly it was at the Westminister School that she first met Evie Hone who was to become a lifelong friend.

22 Roderic

O’Conor 1860-1940

FLEURS DANS UN VASE Oil on card laid down on board, 16" x 13" (40.5 x 33cm), signed. Provenance: Loudmer Poulain SCP, Palais d’Orsay, Paris, 29 December 1977, lot 122 (label verso).

Private Collection, Virginia, USA. The high keyed colouring of Fleurs dans un Vase ‘demonstrates O’Conor’s preference for colours used at full strength. The choice of colour range is typical of his palette with the dark shaped narrow necked vase set on a red draped surface and the yellow and red blooms of the flowers and the green leaves set against the blue grey background’. (Dr. Roy Johnston, private correspondence, 2011) . The application of paint, particularly in the rendering of the chrysanthemums, poppies and marigold amply illustrate ‘how he handled his materials with an anarchic disregard for the niceties of finish and clearly derived a sensuous pleasure from their manipulation. To him, oil paint was a very plastic medium capable of making an aesthetic impact that was independent of its representational function’. Jonathan Benington, Roderic O’Conor, Irish Academic Press, Dublin, 1992, p.15. While painted after his return to Paris in 1904, the inclusion of a ceramic Japanese figurine nestled immediately behind the vase harks back to the artist’s earlier Pont Aven period when Japonisme was a defining characteristic of Gauguin and his ‘talisman’ followers as it would go on to be for the Nabis, both movements with which O’Conor associated himself without ever compromising the independence that he so fiercely protected throughout his artistic career. Est. €30,000 – 50,000

24 Daniel

O’Neill 1920-1974

TRAMCAR DWELLING Oil on board, 18" x 24" (46 x 61cm), signed; inscribed artists label verso. The last Belfast tram left Harland & Woolf on the 27th of February 1954. After they went out of commission several of them were acquired and set up on Tyrella Beach as holiday homes. This charming and Bohemian scene shows a family going about their various everyday chores. The palette is typical of O’Neill, with its electric blues and intense reds alongside rich creamy whites. The figures are simplified but with a slightly more distinct sense of individual identity than is often the case in O’Neill’s multi figure compositions. Est. €14,000 – 18,000

B. Yeats

RHA 1871-1957

THE HOBBY HORSES (1927) Oil on panel, 9" x 14¼" (23.2 x 36.2cm), signed, inscribed verso. Provenance: With Victor Waddington Galleries, Dublin where purchased by the family of the previous owners in 1942; Private Collection Dublin. Exhibited: Birmingham, Ruskin Gallery, “Paintings of Ireland”, 23rd of May - 4th June, 1927, No.8. London, Alpine Club Gallery, Paintings, 24 June - 7 July 1930, No.27. Literature: Hilary Pyle, Jack B. Yeats “A Catalogue Raisonné of his oil paintings” Andre Deustch, Vol I, Cat No. 353 p.320. Yeats loved fairgrounds and he did many paintings and watercolours of fairground subjects. The Merry-Go-Round was a particular favourite for the artist. “Man on a Merry-Go-Round”; a large watercolour dating from 1897 (sold these rooms, 20th November 2001, Lot212). Here it is interesting to note how similar the Conductor is in both paintings though “Hobby Horses” was painted 30 years later, A reviewer of the 1897 exhibition wrote “The man on the Merry-go-Round, with its vivid suggestion of rapid whirl – so vivid that it almost makes you giddy to look at – is quite the best thing in the exhibition, which is well worth a visit!” In “Hobby Horses” the Merry-Go Round has come to a stop and the conductor, leaning back against the horse, is about to take a fare from a young boy in a cap. The elaborately decorated carousel, painted in warm yellow and reds together with the majestic pool of the main horse and the crowded fairground shows Yeats at the very height of his powers. Reviewing an exhibition of Yeats at the Tate Gallery, London, The Apollo magazine wrote “Form almost disappears under the passion for life and movement expressed by thick oil paint splashed on the canvas, with brush and palette knife. The result is at first glance disconcertingly chaotic and restless. Yet Yeats, like Van Gough, whose passionate temper he shares, somehow has these runaway canvases under an inner control. Out of the rash and speed of form and colour energise the things he wants” These sentiments could well be directed towards this powerful work. “Hobby Horses” on first look might appear unclear, yet on careful examination the fairground detail of the Merry-Go-Round, the Conductor, the figures and all the joy of the fair is clearly conveyed in a controlled riot of colour. Est. €60,000 – 90,000

Keating PRHA HRSA 1889-1977

STUDY FOR ‘AN BEINSIN LUACHRA’ (THE SONG OF THE BUNCH OF RUSHES) Charcoal and pastel, 21" x 20 1/2"(53.2 x 52cm), signed. Provenance: Acquired by Louis and Yvonne Jammet, Paris; by descent to their dughter Raymonde Jammet; by family descent to the previous owner. Jammet’s Restaurant occupied 46 Nassau Street, at the bottom of Grafton Street. It was the epitome of fine French dining, excellent wines and unparalleled service and was described by Vogue magazine as one of Europe’s finest restaurants. It was also the place for the well-heeled locals, visiting dignitaries and stars of the day, including Noel Coward, Elizabeth Taylor, Bing Crosby and John Lennon. Louis Jammet was very good friends with frequent patrons Micheal MacLiammoir and Hilton Edwards, who frequently dined there with Gate Theatre founder Lord Longford. It was obviously one of their favourites as they made Louis Jammet a director of The Gate Theatre in 1964. Jammet’s closed in 1967. The woman in this image, in traditional Connemara costume, can be understood to be Keating’s idea of Irish beauty, beside a seafaring man, who hopes to become her suitor. There can be little doubt that there exists in this work the atmosphere of on-going courting. This was a study for ‘An Beinsin Luachra’, which was exhibited at The RHA in 1953 (price: £250). The title comes from an old Irish song which refers to the beauty, honor and virtue of true love, expressed as a meeting between two people. Est. €6,000 – 9,000 30

Henry RHA 1876-1958

SPRING IN WICKLOW c.1922-3 Oil on canvas 12” x 10” (30.5 x 25.4cm), signed. Provenance: Mervyn Solomon, Esq., Belfast; sale, Sloans & Kenyon, Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA, 11 November 2007, lot 1865 (reproduced in colour in catalogue). Exhibited: Fine Art Society, London, Four Irish Artists: J.H. Craig, Paul Henry, E.L. Lawrenson, J. Crampton Walker, March 1928 (catalogue number 92); the same artists, Fine Art Society, November 1930 (88); ‘In Connemara’: Paintings by Paul Henry, Fine Art Society, April 1934 (38). Paul Henry was particularly adept at painting winter trees, where the interlacing of their branches often created a lively pattern against a light sky or, as in this case, the dark background of a hill or mountain. The easy bravura of his brushwork in Spring in Wicklow and the fluidity of the paint itself combine to suggest a date of execution of the early 1920s, that is, shortly after he settled in Dublin after almost a decade living and working on Achill Island. His move to Dublin had largely been at the behest of Grace, his first wife, but the city, and notably nearby County Wicklow, where he eventually settled, provided him with different subject matter to Achill and the richer Wicklow farmland led literally to a richer, more oil-laden use of paint. Henry painted two other pictures, each entitled Spring in Wicklow (see S. B. Kennedy, Paul Henry: with a catalogue of the Paintings, Drawings, Illustrations, New Haven and London, Yale University Press, 2007, numbers 590 and 659), dated 1922-3 and c.1926-8 respectively, and in both of these – and especially the latter – the composition is in a large measure dominated by winter trees set against the sky. As is noted above, Henry also exhibited pictures of this title at the Fine Art Society, London, in 1928, 1930 and 1934, and although one cannot be certain of the identity of the picture in each case, that there is a label of the Fine Art Society on the reverse of this work, suggests that it was shown on at least one of those occasions. This picture is numbered 1219 in S. B. Kennedy’s ongoing cataloguing of Henry’s oeuvre. Dr Brian Kennedy, April, 2012

William Sadler II c.1782-1839 The son of portrait painter and engraver William Sadler Snr, Sadler grew up in Dublin and exhibited his paintings between 1809 and 1821 in the City. In 1828 and 1833 he exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy. Sadler was also a teacher of painting and one of his prominent students was James Arthur O’Connor (1792-1841). As an artist Sadler was greatly influence by Dutch genre painting. This fascinating collection of his work comes from a private Dublin Collection. All charming in their own way the masterpiece of the group is the large view of the Customs House with the street life fully evident on Carlisle Bridge (now O’Connell Bridge). His most interesting works are those of topographical interest rather than subject matter that are dreamed up. Donnybrook fair is perhaps his best known painting which was painted towards the end of the artist’s life.

Born in Kilkenny, Comerford was one of Ireland’s finest miniaturist artist’s. In the 18th Century this form of painting was particularly popular in Europe. Comerford was influenced by the English artist George Chinnery (1774-1882) who was working in Dublin from 1795-1802. Comerford was also influenced by the American painter Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828) who also worked in Dublin from 1787-1793. Comerford was highly regarded during his lifetime and many of his works were engraved.

JOYCE AND PICASSO AT CAFE FLORE, PARIS Oil on canvas, 49" x 45" (124.5 x 114cm), signed and dated 91 & 92 verso.

Provenance Galerie Origrafica, Malmo, Sweden.

Micheal Farrell held a particularly close affection for James Joyce. Not only was he a great admirer of his work but he felt a close affinity with him and their shared status as exiled Irishmen. In 1982 Farrell produced La Fete, a large canvas depicting an alleged gathering in Paris of Picasso, Stravinsky, Nijinsky, Joyce and others in May 1922. He was subsequently told that Joyce and Picasso had met regularly at the Café de Flore in Paris. ‘They never spoke. Picasso made pieces of sculpture and objects from cardboard matchsticks, then passed them to Joyce. These strange meetings intrigued Michael and, in the early 1990’s, formed the basis of a series, Le Rencontre, which spanned several years.’ (David Farrell, Michael Farrell, The Life and Work of an Irish Artist), The Liffey Press, Dublin, 2006. In many instances in this series the focus is on the interplay between the usually seated Picasso and Joyce, with the latter sometimes standing, sometimes crouching and at other times sitting at an adjoining table observing Picasso creating his matchstick sculptures. In our painting Farrell brings Picasso’s creations to the fore and studies the erotic charge Picasso has invested in them under the studious, detached gaze of a truncated Joyce.

Royle RCA, RBA, ARWEA, 1888 - 1961

DRIVING OUT THE FLOCK Oil on canvas 28" x 36" (71cm x 91cm), signed and dated 1923. Trade Stamp verso: Hibbert Bros., Sheffield. Provenance: Private Collection, Dublin. The setting for this sun drenched rustic scene is Dobbin Hill Farm, Bent’s Green, Ecclesall, just a short distance from Priest Hill Farm where Royle worked between the years 1919 and 1926. It was during this period that he painted some of his best canvases, which focus on a single foreground figure set in an expansive landscape. The Goose Girl, (National Gallery of Ireland); Morning on the Derbyshire Moors and The Lilac Sunbonnet are among the best examples. An earlier painting, Spring Morning Among the Bluebells, which may be described as the first in the series, launched Royle on his successful career when it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1914. He had by then developed a distinctive plein air style, which had its roots in French post impressionism. The influence of the Glasgow School and James Guthrie in particular is also evident in his early work. Apart from the obvious differences, the present painting may be compared to The Goose Girl in a number of ways. In subject matter, they both depict a flock of farmyard fowl as they are driven to pasture. A long stick is carried at a particular angle in one hand and a woven basket is carried in the other. The paint is applied in a manner which owes much to the square brush technique but this is not slavishly followed. The effect of dappled sunlight is achieved by irregular small flecks of paint, which give a shimmering effect to the highlights. The painting is brought to life by the use of delicate pastel shades juxtaposed against the dark shadows of the buildings and the strong greens of the foliage. The open doors and windows suggest high summer. Royle did not favour the harsh light of midday, so we may assume that the scene depicts a morning scene where the ducks are driven out to graze for the day. The model is most likely to be Florence Haslam who lived at the farm with her husband. According to Timothy Dickson, she also appears in a number of other paintings from this time. Most notable among these is A Winter’s Evening, a companion piece also painted in 1923 and now in the collection of Mount Alison University, Canada.  Dominic Milmo-Penny, February 2012

Royle RCA, RBA, ARWEA, 1888-1961

BLUEBELLS IN A WOODLAND Oil on canvas, 20" x 24" (51 x 61cm). Provenance: Private Collection, Dublin (same as lot 48). Woodland scenes were a regular feature of Royle’s work, The Margin of the Wood, 1911, being the earliest recorded example. This was followed two years later by Spring Morning Amongst the Bluebells, which may be regarded as the first in a succession of paintings, which feature this annual display. We should also bear in mind that the proper title of Royle’s Goose Girl in the National Gallery of Ireland is Amongst the Bluebells. Royle was essentially a plein air painter, an occupation which brought him very close to nature and her changing seasons. The prolific growth of this small blue flower, which covered the clearings in the woodlands around Sheffield, would have had a profound effect on him as there is no surer sign of the arrival of spring. Apart from bluebells, the theme of gathering flowers in fields and woodlands runs right through Royle’s early career. However, by the late 1920s, his manner had changed and his landscapes became almost devoid of human presence, which is the case with a small number of paintings of bluebell woods, which he did in 1930 and 1931. These are identical in palette, style and handling to the present work, which was probably painted in Whitely Wood, Sheffield, about this time. Apart from this, the familiar Glasgow School device, whereby a single upright tree trunk is placed in the foreground, is also typical of Royle’s early work. As the painting carries the same provenance as Driving out the Flock, it is reasonable to suggest that both of these paintings have a direct link to Stanley Royle’s studio.

Stead-Ellis; Thomas Gibson Fine Art, London (label verso); Bernard Jacobsen gallery, London (label verso); New Art Centre, London (label verso). Born in Streatham, Sutherland graduated from Goldsmith’s college with a degree in engraving. His early work comprised prints of Pastoral scenes in the manner of Samuel Palmer. He did not begin to paint in earnest until he was in his 30s following the collapse of the print market in 1930 due to the Great Depression. These early paintings are mainly landscape and show an affinity with Paul Nash. Sutherland focused on the inherent strangeness of natural forms and abstracting them, sometimes giving his work a surrealist appearance. He is now regarded as a major figure in 20th Century British Art . Est. €12,000 – 16,000 50

87 Nathaniel

Hone RHA 1931-1917

DEER WATERING Oil on canvas, 17" x 27" (43 x 68.5cm), signed with initials. Exhibited: possibly R.H.A 1899, No.7 as Pond, St. Doulough’s or R.H.A 1915 No. 31 also as Pond, St. Doulough’s. Label on reverse of frame for Chapman Bros. 141 King’s Road, London. More closely associated with paintings of wood, farmland, seashore or cliffs with stormy seas, the subjects of rivers, marshes, streams and ponds also provided a theme for the landscapes of Nathaniel Hone. When he was working in France in the 1860s he was drawn to the subject of “The Fairy Marsh”, “La Mare aux Fees, Forest of Fontainbleau”, a motif which fascinated many landscape painters. Hone painted several versions of it, featuring trees, and skies reflected in a pool in a flat landscape. He exhibited several of these canvases at the Paris Salon, and there are two versions in the National Gallery of Ireland (cat. Nos. 1432 and 1485) while one is in a private collection. (1) The present painting “Deer Watering” is a quintessential landscape painting by Hone: a simple scene of animals at a pond in a pasture, with hedgerows, trees and a cloudy sky. The fact that deer, rather than cows, are featured make it unusual among Hone’s pastoral scenes, and recalls his beautiful early French canvas “The Boundary Fence, Forest of Fontainebleau” c. 1868 (2), in which deer are shown grazing in a wood. Moreover, the composition of the present picture is extremely similar in composition to the Fontainebleau canvas “A Fairy Marsh” mentioned above, and also painted in subdued but rich tones: moss greens, browns and ochres, characteristic of Hone. The touches of brown in the leaves may reflect the light of the setting sun, or suggest the beginning of autumn. But the tonality is lifted by the delicate hues in the sky and clouds: pale blue-green, pink and violet. The presence of the gleaming pool adds an extra dimension to the picture: introducing a pale stretch of water into the foreground, in which trees and sky are reflected, and giving a tranquil, contemplative mood. The location or date of the picture are not known. In spite of the resemblances to French canvases, the broad brushstrokes, lack of detail and relaxed manner of painting suggest that this is a relatively late work, perhaps set on Hone’s farmland in north Co. Dublin and dating to the 1890s, when he painted a series of pictures of pastures, with cattle grazing. It is possible that this is one of his pictures entitled “Pond, St. Doulough’s” exhibited at the RHA in 1899 and in 1915 . This was a rare occasion when the artist gave the name of his house at Raheny, St. Doulough’s, where farmyard stretched towards the sea, as a title for his exhibits. On both occasions the painting was not for sale, so perhaps it had important personal association for him. Perhaps the pond near the tree was a place on Hone’s land to which he walked, to watch his animals and to reflect. Two larger and unframed canvases of similar subjects “Pool before Rain, Four Cows” and “Pool under the Willow” remained in Hone’s studio after his death, and where included in the Bequest of his widow Magdalen.

BRETON WOMEN Oil on panel, 7½" x 9½" (19 x 24cm), signed with monogram. Provenance: James Adams, 7th December 2005. In 1894 May travelled with Mildred Anne Butler to study painting under Norman Garstin at Newlyn, Cornwall. She exhibited several works at the RHA between 1897 & 1911, however she had a falling out with them and never exhibited there again. From 1910 she visited France on a regular basis painting scenes of fairs and weddings in Brittany. In 1914 at the age of fifty one she left Ireland and joined the French army as a military nurse. This heroic gesture was recognised by the French authorities and she received medals of honour at the end of hostilities. Throughout a long life she exhibited her work in both Paris, London and Dublin to wide acclaim. This small, beautifully executed work shows how skilled she was.

111 Louis

Le Brocquy HRHA 1916-2012

DISTANT IMAGE Oil on canvas, 57½" x 45" (146 x 114.2cm), signed and dated 1970 verso. In the late 60’s and early 70’s, Irish art was going through a pivotal change, and Louis Le Brocquy was an integral part of this changing landscape. In 1969, Northern Ireland was rocked by intense political and sectarian rioting which developed into the “Troubles.” Le Brocquy’s terrified heads of the early 70’s express this horror with a hand turned palm outwards ordering a halt to this sustained war Executed in 1970, “Distant image” with others of similar themes “Northern Image, 1971” (private collection) depict the anguish and suffering of the people in Northern Ireland. In “Distant Image”, the effect of a face emerging slowly in the distance within two delineated squares evokes different emotions from each viewer. In the peering head, dappled red and blue pigment in the outstretched hand and cheekbones add drama to the floating image. The ghostly head is a human form with it’s flickering of flesh colour, isolated in a cloudy substance, eyes tight shut, mouth open aghast, as if suspended, perhaps trapped, perhaps blinded by a watery mist. The viewer waits for the mist to pass, for the face to change to a warmer skin tone, for the palm to turn and beckon us in a welcoming gesture, and in doing so, perhaps the image will submerge complete with eyes wide open, mouth smiling. In 1981, Dorothy Walker wrote a biography of the artist, and Le Brocquy spoke about his head series “For over fifteen years I have tried to draw from the depths of paper, or from the white canvas, a human face. As I have remarked, this quiet activity has little to do with communication, or with self-expression for that matter. It aims rather to make visible, a lurking image, to identify, to name some trace or aspect of reality…” (quoted by Dorothy Walker, a Biography, 1981 published by Ward River Press, p.146). There is no doubt that this is a major work by one of Ireland’s most distinguished artists. Est. €50,000 – 70,000

Muriel Brandt RHA 1909-1981 Born in Belfast, Muriel Brandt studied at the Belfast College of Art before winning a scholarship to the Royal College of Art in London. In 1938 she began a forty year association with the Royal Hibernian Academy. During this time she exhibited 145 works in total. I was privileged as a child to visit her home in Sutton with my father. She was full of charm. She struggled to make a living out of art and portrait commissions were her stable diet. Her tour de force was her drawing of watercolours of children. My father got her many commissions and he often felt the initial preparatory drawing was better than the finished work. These particular watercolours show Muriel at her very best. They show scenes from a rural Irish festival and may well be her interpretation of the Ould Lammas Fair, Bally Castle, Co. Antrim, that has been going for over one hundred years.

GEORGE CAMPBELL RHA 1917-1979 The following works come from the artist’s family, by descent: Virtually a self-taught artist, Campbell abandoned commercial life and became a full time artist in the early 1940s in 1944, he held his first exhibition with Gerard Dillon at John Lamb’s Gallery, in Portadown. He was to become a lifelong friend of Dillon’s. In 1946 he held the first of many successful shows with Victor Waddington in Dublin. In 1947 he started a long association with the RHA where he was to exhibit close to one hundred works over the next 30 years. Campbell first visited Spain in 1951 and that country was the paly a leading part in his life up until his death. As well as painting, Campbell took a keen interest in the Guitar and was recognised as a quality Flamenco guitarist in Malaga. Musicians were to become popular subject matter for his painting. The West of Ireland was a place he visited most years sometimes in the company of Gerard Dillon, Another Northern Ireland artist, Arthur Armstrong, was to become a close friend. They held several exhibitions together and lived near each other in Ranelagh for many years. Campbell is unquestionably one of the best painters Ireland has produced in modern times. He died in Dublin on the 18th May 1979 and is buried at Laragh in Glendalough. (See Theo Snoddy, Dictionary of Irish Painters, 20th Century p. 49/50). I got to know Madge, George’s widow many years ago when she lived in Ranelagh before selling up and going to live with her sister outside Belfast. She was kind and generous and I always felt the passing of George, Arthur and others left her with an indelible mark of loss. After spending several contented years with her sister she passed away. These wonderful watercolours and drawings have been entrusted to us to dispose of so that they can be seen and appreciated by a wider audience. The coastal studies are most probably the West of Ireland. John deVere White.

Standard Conditions of Business 1. Definitions In these Conditions, de Veres Art Auctions, who act as auctioneers and agents for the vendor, are called ‘the auctioneers’ (which expression shall be deemed to include their servants and agents) and the representative of de Veres conducting the auction is called ‘The Auctioneer’. 2. Third Party Liability Every person at or on the ‘Auctioneers’ premises or at any premises being used by the Auctioneer at any time shall be deemed to be there entirely at his/her own risk and shall have no claim whatsoever against the Auctioneers or their servants or agents in respect of any accident or incident which may occur nor any injury, damage or loss howsoever arising and whether or not same is the subject of any allegation of negligence. 3. General Whilst the Auctioneers make every effort to ensure the accuracy of their catalogue and the description of any lot: (a) Each lot as set out in the catalogue or as divided or combined with any other lots or lots is sold by the vendor with all faults, imperfections and errors of description. (b) Any claim under any Statute must be received in writing by the Auctioneers within three months of the sale. (c) The Auctioneers shall not be liable for consequential or resultant loss or damage whether sustained by a Vendor or a Purchaser or the owner of any item or their respective servants and agents arising in any circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of any claim made by any party as to negligence or lack of care of the Auctioneers or any part acting on their behalf. 4. The Auction (a) The Auctioneer has absolute discretion to divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots or to withdraw any lot or lots from the sale, to refuse bids, regulate bidding or cancel the sale without in any case giving any reason or previous notice. He may bid on behalf of the vendor for all goods which are being offered subject to reserve or at the Auctioneer’s discretion. (b) The highest bidder shall be the buyer except in the case of a dispute. If during the auction the Auctioneer considers that a dispute had arisen. He has absolute discretion to settle it or to re-offer the lot. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance or bidding or refuse a bid. (c) Each lot is put up for sale subject to any reserve price placed by the vendor. Whether or not there is a reserve price the seller has the right to bid either personally or by any one person (who may be the Auctioneer). (d) All conditions, notices, descriptions, statements and other matters in the catalogue and elsewhere concerning any lot are subject to any statements modifying or affecting the same made by the Auctioneer from the rostrum prior to any bid being accepted for the lot. 5. Recession Notwithstanding any other terms of these Conditions, if within 12 months after the sale, the Auctioneers have received from the buyer any notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery and within twenty-one days after such notification the buyer returns the same to the Auctioneers in the same condition as at the time of sale and by producing evidence, the burden of proof to be upon the buyer satisfies the Auctioneers that considered in the light of the entry in the catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery, then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price of the sale refunded. In the event of a dispute then the matter shall be settled by the President of the Institution of Chartered Surveyors in the Republic of Ireland. Both the buyer and the vendor agree to be bound by the decision . 6. Default The Auctioneers disclaim responsibility for default by - either the buyer or the vendor because they act as Agents for the vendor only and therefore do not pay out to the vendor until payment is received from the buyer.

In the event of a sale by private treaty both the vendor and the buyer agree to be found by these and any Special Conditions of Sale.
