8 John Shinnors SCOTTISH KITES – BANNA STRAND Dyptich, oil on linen laid on panel, each panel 20½" x 11½" (52 x 29.5cm), overall 20½" x 25" (52 x 63.5cm), signed; signed & inscribed verso; included is a watercolour sketch for this work.

S hinnors tends to work with a restricted palette, dominated by black and white (although he protests that it is not quite as limited as it sounds, as he uses five different shades of black). He enjoys using pattern, creating abstract images from which forms slowly emerge, rather than presenting his subject in an obvious or instantly revealing way. This work is offered with the sketch the artist made on Banna Strand, Co Kerry.

10 John Doherty b.1949 JOHN & DENIS MANGAN’S SHOP, KILLORGLIN, CO. KERRY Acrylic on canvas, 43¼" x 70½" (109.8 x 179cm), signed, inscribed & dated ’84 verso.

Provenance: Taylor Galleries Dublin (label verso).

Born in Kilkenny in 1949, Doherty initially studied architecture at Bolton Street in Dublin. He then left Ireland and spent five years in Sydney before deciding to follow a full time career as an artist. He still spends several months a year in Sydney.

Described once in a conversation by Art Critic Brian Fallon, as the finest photo realist artist in Ireland and England. His work is immediately appealing for its benign normality with which he captures his subject matter: abandoned corner shops, rusting petrol pumps and as in this picture, landmark shop fronts such as Mangan’s in Killorglin, Co Kerry.

11 Micheal Farrell 1940-2000 RAILWAY STATION, LEZAN Acrylic on canvas, 53" x 79½" (135 x 202cm), signed verso.

Micheal’s painting shows the old Railway Station of Lezan, a village 2 kilometres from Cardet. In the past the mechanics serviced the trains in this building… Micheal added the train even though this finished a long time ago.

It became a wine cellar in 1988, the year we arrived in Cardet, and was one of the places Micheal bought his wine. The changing landscape with the seasons was one of the subjects in the early ’90s for several of his paintings. It was a very happy time for him but he was almost apologetic for doing ‘happy’ paintings.

12 Mary Swanzy HRHA 1882-1978 HOUSE WITH RED SHUTTERS Oil on canvas, 16¼" x 14¼" (42 x 36cm), signed.

Provenance: Pyms Gallery, London (label verso).

Mary Swanzy was one of the earliest Irish artists to absorb a thorough knowledge of Modernism. In David Lee’s words (Arts Review, October 1986), “she was one of the last surviving artists with first-hand experience of Paris in the first thrilling decades of the [twentieth] century when new and almost immediately discarded styles lay thick under foot”. But unlike, say, Roderic O’Conor, who was in thrall to Gauguin, she never embraced any one influence to the exclusion of others – she is “delightfully unconventional”, the Irish Times commented of her in 1922 – choosing rather to draw upon whatever sources she felt most comfortable with.

21 Paul Henry RHA 1876-1958 A ROAD IN CONNEMARA Oil on board, 10" x 12½" (25.5 x 32cm), signed, inscribed verso.

T his picture, no doubt, dates from the close of Paul Henry’s painting career. He went to Achill Island in 1910 and returned from Achill, to Enniskerry, around 1920. But he continued to visit the West, on numerous occasions. In the early thirties, for example, he paid a visit to Connemara, staying in a cottage belonging to a friend. He continued to make paintings from sketchbooks done earlier, and this has the appearance of one such painting.

He has used his familiar themes: the road in front of the cottages, with its simple fence, is painted casually; there is some impasto on the walls and roof of the cottages; the foreground to the left is scrubland; which brings one to the mountains with the direction of light firmly indicated; while in the sky – which is the glory of the picture – there is heavier impasto.

‘A Road in Connemara’ is numbered 1348 in S.B. Kennedy’s on-going catalogue of Paul Henry’s oeuvre.

Exhibited: Paris, Salon d’Automne, 1920, no.I658; London, Barbican Gallery, Roderic O’Conor, 12 September - 3 November 1985, with tour to Belfast, Dublin and Manchester, no.77 (label verso).

Female models abound in the later work of Roderic O’Conor, when he was working out of a studio-cum-flat in the Montparnasse district of Paris. Most of these pictures showed the figure placed in an interior setting, with accompanying props of furniture, ceramics and coloured drapes. It was comparatively rare, however, for O’Conor to adopt a sufficiently close-up view of the model for it to function as a portrait. The present picture is so carefully studied and thoughtfully coloured – with its complimentary swathes of crimson and green, yellow and purple – and the model’s features bear so much resemblance to other images of Renée Honta, that it can only be a portrait of her.

 enée Honta (1894-1955), credited by Clive Bell as having been “a charming and gifted lady“, is said to have “mitigated the R painful loneliness” of O’Conor’s old age. Early in their relationship he wrote her a series of tender love letters, addressing her as “my dear little friend.” Renée came from Pau in the Basses Pyrenées and arrived in Paris as a young woman, aspiring to be a painter whilst working part-time as an artist’s model. It was doubtless her modelling that brought her into contact with O’Conor during the First World War. She became his mistress and learnt to paint under his guidance (the green over-garment she wears in ‘La Blouse Verte’, with its rolled-up sleeves, looks like an artist’s smock). She married him in 1933 and cared for him when his health started to decline. On his death in 1940 she inherited a life interest in his property, his investments and the extensive contents of his studio. A photograph of her taken during the 1930s shows the same rounded face and shoulders, the same prominent features and bushy hair as are captured in the present work.

In ‘La Blouse Verte’ the twenty-five year old Renée looks directly out of the picture, confidently returning the painter’s gaze, her head inclined to one side allowing it to rest on the extended fingers of her right hand. The light from an adjacent window throws the figure into sharp relief, making her sleeve, hand, neck and face stand out as the brightest parts of the picture. The dark shadows running down her right cheek and along the line of her raised arm give the figure a presence that is almost sculptural. This effect is further enhanced by the dense build-up of paint, which must have necessitated a prolonged period of gestation in the studio, given that each layer had to be allowed time to dry before the next one could be applied. The result is as textured and rich an impasto as can be seen in any of O’Conor’s intimiste nudes from the previous decade.

La blouse verte was one of five paintings O’Conor exhibited at the 1920 Salon d’Automne. The fact that his other four submissions were still lifes suggests that the picture, rendered unique owing to its figurative content, was one that gave him particular satisfaction.

27 Patrick Collins HRHA 1911-1984 SWALLOWS UNDER THE ROOF Oil on canvas, 21½" x 26" (53 x 66cm), signed; inscribed verso.

In 1959 an Irish Press report described how Patrick Collins climbed down to the Liffey at Capel Street Bridge to rescue a drowning pigeon, an incident which isn’t surprising given this artist’s lifelong fascination and sympathy for birds. They appear again and again in his paintings, where he has shown them hunting, feeding, singing and flying home; he’s painted them caged as well as calmly nesting under a roof, as in this picture.

‘Swallows Under the Roof’ is a very unusual and bold take on the bird motif. Pared down to its most essential elements, the painting is more like an abstract composition than a literal depiction. The painting revolves around the idea of contrast or ‘opposition.’ There is a strong, taut horizontal band that anchors a jewel-like form in the centre. The artist has created an image with great visual tension, with this dense, weighty ‘jewel’ suspended in a space that is its opposite: pale, insubstantial and delicately ethereal. Collins is playing with abstract visual ideas and succeeds in creating dramatic impact.

 owever, the artist’s starting point was something he observed: a nest that, inside, was pulsing with life. In this vast space, H the only source of sound, warmth, movement and energy is the birds’ nest. The tension between nest and barn echoes the way the painting is visually constructed, reinforcing its meaning.

Camille Souter HRHA b.1926 CALARY BOG Oil on paper, 22" x 32" (56 x 81cm), signed, inscribed & dated 1962. Provenance: Taylor Galleries, Dublin (label verso).

E xhibited: Twelve Irish Painters, Arts Center, New School for Social Research, New York, 1963, no. 59; Camille Souter, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin, 1980, addenda no. 6.

Literature: Cormican, Garrett, Camille Souter – the Mirror in the Sea, 2006, p. 243 (illus.).

 amille Souter’s move in 1962 to a farm near Calary Bog in County Wicklow led to her creation of a series of memorable C paintings, including ‘Quiet, Calary Bog’. In the early ’sixties the restless abstract expressionist surfaces of previous work calmed down as the artist formed a connection with the surrounding landscape. Jittery lines gave way to ordered compositions, where rectangular geometric shapes are used to give weight and definition to the landscape. In this painting one can also see how Souter manages to balance on that thin edge that separates representation and pure abstraction. She’s inspired by the landscape but she also ‘plays’ with the shapes so that there’s a satisfying abstract ‘dance’ on the surface – the rectangles pulling your eye forward and back in space, left and right, up and down. This isn’t a static scene, frozen in time, but an active one.

The artist has also begun her lifelong preoccupation with outdoor light, infusing this painting with a golden glow. As the title of the painting suggests, Souter was interested in conveying the atmosphere of the place, its ‘quietness’ expressed in the restrained colour palette and in the gently undulating horizontal bands of the composition. She’s an artist who has an innate feel for the most subtle variations of colour and light in nature, while remaining faithful to the character of the brushwork and the paint. This painting is both luscious and austere, Souter’s response to a ripe and gentle landscape.

29 William Scott RA 1913-1989 PAINTING 1959 Oil on canvas, 83½" x 53½" (212 x 135cm), signed.

 rovenance: Hanover Gallery, London; Galleria dell’Ariete, Milan, whence purchased P by the previous owner, 1959; Sotheby’s London, 24th October 2005, lot 77 (catalogue note below) where purchased by the present owner.

E xhibited: Milan, Galleria dell’Ariete, 20 Quadri, Premio dell’Ariete, Selezione Biennale di Pittura Internazionale, 1959, illustrated in the exhibition catalogue, p.45.

T his work won the Jury’s purchase prize. The jury included Sir Herbert Read and Antonio Tapies.

The present work is recorded in the William Scott Archive as no.1597.

 aving returned from a brief essay into abstraction in the early 1950s Scott had, to a H large extent, concentrated for much of the rest of the decade on the still-life subject of his early career. However, as the paintings developed in the last years of the decade, the objects themselves became less and less important, their forms becoming increasingly simplified and distorted, with their importance lying in their use as formal compositional elements. Freed from a need to keep the recognisable form of the object, Scott became ever more willing to use each one as vehicle for textural diversity, either heightening a colour contrast with the brushwork, or in some paintings using the paint handling itself to delineate forms within a like-coloured background.

S imilarly the setting of the image could be manipulated, with the suggested planes of a still life composition becoming an equally weighted element in the image. Thus, in the present work Scott has broken down the recognisable elements of a still life to such an extent that it appears at first sight to be entirely abstract. However, closer inspection begins to suggest the line of the edge of the table dividing the picture plane and the vestiges of the familiar forms of cup and pan floating across the surface. By removing their obvious connotations, the forms were released by the artist to act as simple signifiers and mark a path forward towards the full abstraction Scott would achieve in the early 1960’s.

 ne distinguishing feature of Scott’s work at this time is the supremely confident and O varied handling of the paint surface which is seen at its very best in the present painting. The range of textures that are drawn together are quite remarkable in their variance, from the richly stroked palette-knifed background to the deeply incised line which delineates the large circular forms which provide the central feature of the composition.

Mainie Jellet 1897-1944 FLOWER FORMS Oil on canvas, 18" x 24" (46 x 61cm), signed; inscribed label verso. Provenance: Sothebys, The Irish Sale, London 21 May 1998, lot 329; Private Collection, Dublin.

E xhibited: ‘Mainie Jellet’, Painters Gallery, Dublin, 1937; Mainie Jellet Memorial Exhibition 1944, No.26; Hugh Lane, Mainie Jellet Retrospective, 1962, No.70.

Literature: ‘Mainie Jellet and the Modern Movement in Ireland’, by Bruce Arnold, for Yale University Press, 1991, pp.160 and 162 (no.210 col. illus.).

In the deeply conservative Irish art world of the 1920s and ’30s, Mainie Jellett was among the small number of Irish painters who were influenced by Cubism. She was undoubtedly the artist who absorbed it most completely. From the 1920s until her death two decades later, her Cubist-inspired paintings put her at the forefront of the Irish avant-garde.

 s her work evolved, the austere abstractions of the early twenties gradually became more layered and visually complex. A Also, her work moved towards semi-abstraction, frequently using religious imagery. Her paintings, like this one, dispense with perspective, replacing it with the two dimensional picture plane embraced by Cubists.

‘Flower Forms’ is a glorious late work, with the rigidity of her early paintings giving way to a more spontaneous expression of form. Jellett wanted each of her compositions to be inspired by the outer appearance of something, but not reproduce it. So when she looked at flower forms in real life, Jellett wanted to find their ‘inner rhythms’ or internal patterns—some ‘inner principle’ that defined the subject. In this painting the artist has embraced the circular pattern that she perceived was at the heart of her subject, then repeats, overlays, shifts and rotates the motif around a central axis. She has infused a static ‘still life’ with movement and energy.

Jellett also wrote about wanting to produce an emotional reaction to her pictures. Looking at Flower Forms one can’t help but be caught up in its joyous spirit.

31 Colin Middleton 1910-1983 PAYSAGE DES REVES MAUVAIS (1940) Oil on canvas, 18" x 24" (46 x 61cm), signed & inscribed.

 rovenance: from the Collection of George and Maura McClelland and on loan from them to IMMA from 1999-2004; P Private Collection, Dublin.

E xhibited: Colin Middleton: Paintings and Drawings from the McClelland Collection, IMMA, Dublin, Jan-June 2001 – Northern Artists from the McClelland Collection, IMMA, Dublin, 2004-2005; Droichead Arts Centre, Drogheda, 2005 – The Surreal in Irish Art, F.E. McWilliam Museum, Banbridge, May-Sept 2011; The Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda, Sept-Nov 2011.

L iterature: The Hunter Gatherer, IMMA 2004, illustrated fig. 61 page 53; The Surreal in Irish Art, F.E. McWilliam Museum 2011 (used as the invitation image for the exhibition), fig. 6 page 11.

T he world of the dream, presenting a parallel reality to our own that operates by entirely independent rules, is a staple of surrealism. The landscape of nightmares Middleton creates here is full of drama and movement; perhaps the suggested fragility of the world he depicts is a reference to the wartime environment in which it was painted, where the threat of violence undermined the normal rules and logic of life.

T he dynamic and contorted form of the semi-clothed figure, with its broad contours of rich colour and shadow that is typical of Middleton’s early work, is dramatically set against the harsh angularity of three tall sticks that lean against each other. She falls back against a tiny ladder; pieces of material bind her to these three sticks which seem inexplicably to support her weight, as if this is a moment frozen in time. This world is both primitive and also disturbingly mechanised; parts of the figure almost seem to dissolve into unravelling lengths of steel. An impossibly extended finger points over the top of the sticks and towards a dressing table with a broken mirror, adding a sense of violence or threat to the vast desert landscape, whose hostility is increased by the sudden gorge that seems to be at the very front of the composition, in dangerous proximity to this figure.

T he emotional impact of this painting is arguably as consistently strong and visceral as Middleton achieved in his surrealist work. His strength in design and illusionistic painting is very apparent here but it never undermines the uneasy and threatening immediacy of the work.

ROWAN GILLESPIE Gillespie, a major sculptor of international standing whose reputation far exceeds our shores is an Irish artist of great importance . Drawing on the wellspring of his own personal experience, the nature of his work is instinctual and has always remained true to itself. His truth to form retains the freshness and vitality of his original development. None more so than in the three examples of his sculpture included in this auction. Gillespie being a master craftsman is also unique by the fact that he personally models and casts all his own work and is an expert in this highly skilled area. 

Suzanne MacDougald, May 2018

50 Rowan Gillespie b.1953 CLICK Bronze, 44" high (112cm), excluding stone plinth; signed, inscribed & dated 2004, ed. 2/9.

The inspiration for this beautiful sculpture came from a Festival in Dun Laoighaire in 2003. Ireland was opening its doors to a new wave of immigrants and a celebration of cultural diversity was been held there with dance and music. Gillespie was particularly taken with a graceful dancer weaving her rhythmic way around the stage clicking her fingers, hence the title.

51 Rowan Gillespie b.1953 IN AWE Bronze, 44" high (112cm), excluding stone plinth; signed, inscribed & dated 2003, ed. 2/9.

T his sculpture one could almost describe as being part of a trilogy, commencing with ‘Looking at the Moon’ (Gouda Holland), ‘Looking at the Sea’ (Malahide) and the third being ‘In Awe’.

Having worked on ‘Ripples of Ulysses’ (Merrion Hotel ) also in 2001 , a detailed and complicated sculpture the three sculptures that followed consisted of distilled forms and shapes. Even in their simplicity, these pieces have enormous presence and are as always elegant and arresting. Suzanne MacDougald, May 2018

“If you can keep your head when all about you    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, …you’ll be a man my son.”

52 Rowan Gillespie b.1953 LIFE 2002 Bronze, 59" high (150cm), signed & dated 2002, ed. 2/9.

Gillespies ability to convey feeling and emotion is evident in this sculpture. The small figure teetering on its bronze branch signifys how precarious life can be.

An earlier private commission entitled ‘If’, based on the poem by Rudyard Kipling included this same figure.

 ecent Commissions include ‘Footsteps’ , a major group of sculptures commissioned for Hobart Tasmania, unveiled by R HE the President Mr Michael Higgins. Suzanne MacDougald, May 2018

He favoured soft, flowing shapes and focused on the different sections of each artwork and the way in which he bought them together to achieve the form and texture he desired. He was a regular exhibitor at The RHA, Dublin in the 1990s and is represented in Private and Corporate Collections including AIB, Áras an Uachtaráin, Dublin and Limerick Corporations.

69 Anthony Scott RUA b.1968 ETAIN 6 Bronze, 18" x 20" (46 x 51cm), signed, ed.3/9.

Born in rural Fermanagh, Anthony Scott attended university in Belfast and completed an MA in Cardiff in 1993. Now living and working in Blacklion on the border, Scott is primarily known for his beautifully stylised bronze animals, traditional in form, but with a modern twist. His animals and figures draw upon Celtic mythology and literature, their expressions and stances imbued with human characteristics invoking heroism and passion. They are each open to interpretation and at once animal, divine, spirit, male, female, depending on which story one might choose to recount.
