PORTRAITS FROM MOURNE PARK Mourne Park is the secluded and history-filled seat of the Kilmorey family, who have been in the Newry and Mourne area of Northern Ireland since the mid 1500s. Predecessor Sir Nicholas Bagnall was granted extensive lands and a title in Newry and Mourne in 1552 by Edward VI for his military help against Irish chiefs in their clashes with the Tudor dynasty. The Bagnall family married into the Nedham (Needham today) family and the Bagnall name died out in 1708. The Nedham family hailed from Shropshire, where their main seat stood at Shavington. Mourne Park was a summer house until the 3rd Earl of Kilmorey’s extravagant lifestyle and spending led to its sale and the family moving to Ireland permanently in the nineteenth century. The present group of three portraits have been in the Kilmorey family’s possession since each of them were painted. They beautifully illustrate the changes English portraiture underwent in the just over hundred years that separate them. The first work is typical of Elizabethan courtly portraiture, with its very formal composition, lack of concern for rational anatomy and real depth of character but immense interest in costume and portraying the sitter in an appropriately formal

23 EAA567/1 ATTRIBUTED TO ROBERT PEAKE THE ELDER (BRITISH c. 1551-1619) THREE-QUARTER LENGTH PORTRAIT OF THE FIRST VISCOUNT OF KILMOREY Inscribed and dated 1598, oil on panel 127cm x 102cm (50in x 40in)

£10,000-15,000

18

The attribution of lot 23 to the portraitist Robert Peake is based on the strong stylistic similarities between this likeness of Nedham to other works by Peake of the English nobility such as Elizabeth D’Oyly, in the Norwich Castle Museum and Elizabeth Poulet in the Berger Collection in Denver. The composition of the male sitter also bears strong resemblance to the Portrait of John Braddyll of Portfield and Whalley (15571616) from 1580s also attributed to Peake by Philip Mould, London.

and dignified manner. The portrait of the 4th Viscount of Kilmorey attributed to John Hayls possesses the dynamism and psychological depth which filtered into portraiture by the middle of the seventeenth century, whereas the Portrait of the Duke of Schomberg attributed to Kneller demonstrates fully the sumptuous technique and keen attention to texture and drama which made Godfrey Kneller the foremost portrait painter of the late 17th and early 18th century. The Nedhams’ connection to Ireland goes back to the Plantation of Ireland during James I and Charles I’s reigns. The process of ‘Planting’ Ireland began during the reign of Henry VIII but made significant progress under James I, Charles I and Cromwell. It involved confiscating land from Gaelic clans and Hiberno-Norman dynasties and populating it with settlers from England, Scotland and Wales, who were Protestant and English-speaking, thus altering the demographic of Ireland, most successfully in Ulster and Munster. The Nedhams were one of the families which took part in the ‘colonisation’ of Ireland under James I and for his support, the sitter, Sir Robert Nedham was granted the feudal Barony of Orhera in 1613 and was created Viscount Kilmorey by Charles I in 1625.

The three-quarter length format and style place it firmly at the centre of Elizabethan portraiture. Born in Lincolnshire, Peake was appointed sergeant painter to James I in 1607, sharing the office with John De Critzt. Peake was already a popular society portraitist by the 1580s but he undertook the official task of painting the royal likeness when he entered in the service of James I. A significant portrait of James I’s second son, then Prince Charles, Duke of York, and the future Charles I was

commissioned from Peake by the Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University in 1613 for £13.6s.8d which still hangs in Cambridge University Library today. The present work depicts Robert as a young man with the Nedham (Needham) family coat of arms to the left and a cloak over his left shoulder. His visage is quiet but confident and his manner and dress refined – a courtier similarly at ease at court and in the countryside.

Lot 24 depicts Charles Nedham, 4th Viscount of Kilmorey, the grandson of the 1st Viscount of Kilmorey depicted in lot 23, who succeeded to the title after the death of his half-brother Robert Nedham, the 3rd Viscount in 1657. In 1659 along with other Royalists, some of them from the aristocracy, he was involved in the unsuccessful uprising on behalf of King Charles II known as the Booth Uprising. Nedham liaised with the Earl of Derby and Sir George Booth, a particularly active Royalist in that uprising, at Warrington. Richard Cromwell's intelligence managed to infiltrate the conspiracy and many of those involved were intercepted before the insurgence had taken place. Nedham was arrested the same year and he died in prison in 1660, unlike Booth and Derby who both escaped conviction and survived the Tower of London, later returning to their lands and flourishing when Charles

II was indeed reinstated as King in May 1660. The painting, attributed to John Hayls is very different from the depiction of his grandfather by Peake. The sitter is portrayed in a most dynamic composition, his body facing away from the viewer and into his private space yet turning his head to look back towards us, as if interrupted mid-stride. He is clearly depicted as a man of action, his sword prominently in the centre of the foreground. Diarist Samuel Pepys wrote of Hayls quite frequently and commissioned first a portrait of his wife and then one of himself from Lely's contemporary and rival. Pepys's description of sitting for Hayls: 'I sit to have it full of shadows, and do almost break my neck looking over my shoulder to make the posture for him to work by. (17th March 1666)' curiously echoes the very dramatic posture of Charles

Nedham, much more so than Pepys's own portrait, now in the National Portrait Gallery in London. Pepys was to become a firm friend to the artist. Hayls was greatly influenced by Anthony Van Dyck, both in his handling of paint and in his compositions - he was known to use a Van Dyck composition directly and just add his sitter's head. The unusual pose of glancing back at the viewer may be related to two of Van Dyck's Self-Portraits where the artist depicts himself from the waist-up looking over his shoulder. Hayls demonstrates his great skill in observing the variety of textures in his sitter's dress -the gleaming armour, intricate embroidery on the sleeve and luxurious velvet of the green cloak. There is far more intensity in the sitter's expression and gaze, than in the portrait of his grandfather father several decades earlier.

£4,000-6,000

The Duke of Schomberg (1616-1690) is spectacular subject matter for a formal portrait, depicting one of the great professional soldiers and military leaders of 17th century Europe, the ‘Ablest Soldier of his Age’, as Matthew Glozier has subtitled his recent biography of the Heidelberg-born Mashal Schomberg. An orphan from an early age, he began his career in the service of Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange, eventually serving Sweden, France, the Dutch Republic, Brandenburg and Britain in their military endeavours. He was a Marshal of France and a General in the English and Portuguese armies, was awarded the title of Count of Mértola by the King of Portugal, the Order of the Garter and created Duke of Schomberg in the English Peerage. As historians have noted, Schomberg was one of the

22

last international soldiers and military leaders, prospering at a time when borders in Europe were more permeable and there was a constant need for experienced military leaders. That became less the case towards the end of the

seventeenth century when different governments took more control of their armies. An inflexible Protestant, Schomberg married a French Huguenot woman and eventually led William II’s armies against the Jacobite supporters of James II in

Ireland, second-in-command to the Prince of Orange. He died at the Battle of the Boyne on 1st July 1690 whilst crossing the Boyne river and rallying his men and is buried in St Patrick’s Cathedral.

36 EAA420/3 REV JOHN THOMSON OF DUDDINGSTON H.R.S. (SCOTTISH 1778-1840) DISTANT VIEW OF EDINBURGH FROM DONIBRISTLE Oil on canvas 80cm x 120cm (31in x 47.25in) Provenance: W. Bryce Brechin, Portobello Literature: Robert W Napier, John Thomson of Duddingston, 1919, pp. 459, 460 Note: Napier notes that the painting was valued for probate in 1876 for 130 guineas

£5,000-8,000

Reverend John Thomson of Duddingston is a wonderfully poetic figure in the history of Scottish Art. Working from his studio in the tower on the banks of the Duddingston Loch, at the foot of the primordial Arthur’s Seat, he produced paintings which some argue are the first truly Scottish landscapes. His prolific and in some respects ‘amateur’ output, in the sense that he did not formally train as an artist, has been pivotal for the development of the genre in Scottish painting. The present painting shows the Pentland Hills and Arthur’s Seat seen from across the Firth of Forth, in Donibristle Park in Fife. This was clearly a successful composition because a smaller oil of the same subject matter is recorded by Baird in the collection of the artist’s

nephew, Lockhart Thomson of Derreen, Murrayfield. Born in Ayrshire, the fourth son of Reverend Thomson of Dailly, Thomson studied theology in Glasgow University and at Edinburgh, where he also received lessons in painting from Alexander Nasmyth. Thomson was ordained in 1802 and returned to his birthplace in Dailly in Ayrshire where he combined preaching of the gospel and pastoral care for the congregation with dedicated excursions to scenic spots for painting where he would sit for hours sketching, like his teacher Nasmyth. He would then complete the painting back in the studio. He visited the English lakes in 1802, later transforming his on-thespot sketches into fully worked up watercolours. His interest in art certainly alienated some members of the Ayrshire community who were said to travel seven miles out every Sunday to the Burgher Kirk in Maybole where the pastor had less unorthodox interests. Another anecdote recalls Thomson sketching a particularly picturesque character seated amongst the rustic congregation whilst a senior member of the clergy performed communion. One of his older fellow ministers, urged by his colleagues is said

to have chastised Thomson for the impropriety of a priest sketching during a sermon only to be presented at the end with yet another character sketch, this time of his own cross and sombre features. Thomson became an exceedingly popular minister and artist when he transferred to Duddingston in the capital and where he served for thirty-two years. He was able to renew old friendships and involve himself in the artistic and intellectual circles of Edinburgh. He continued to draw and paint and was able to supplement his modest stipend with the sale of his paintings, becoming very comfortable in the process. He remained unwavering in his goal to depict the landscape as seen, with fluid brushstrokes and at times in dramatic weather conditions. He became known for ‘those terrible skies which only Thomson can paint’. In this he was probably influenced by wider British developments in landscape painting, whilst many saw his paintings as a visual representation of the spirit of a Romantic age which produced the writings of Sir Walter Scott. In 1818 he was commissioned, alongside celebrated English artist Turner to produce eleven

plates each for Scott’s text to Provincial Antiquities of Scotland. Turner stayed with him on the loch and went sketching with Thomson and Hugh ‘Grecian’ Williams. The Englishman is said to have remarked upon Thomson’s outlook on Duddingston loch ‘By God, sir, I envy you that piece of water’. Thomson had a keen eye for detail and anecdotal stories from his memoir, by W Baird, tell of the young lad rising at two in the morning to travel to Hadyard or Kirkhill to witness the sun rise. That may be poetic license but without doubt, John Thomson was indeed most interested in representing Nature as it is. Baird felt that ‘without truth he [Thomson] regarded the most elaborately executed landscape as but a fantastic and idle dream’. It is that continuous insistence on observing and painting nature and his surroundings as faithfully as possible that situates John Thomson firmly among the most important of Scottish artists and landscapists.

PAINTINGS FROM THE JOHN GUEST COLLECTION

John Guest MBE MUniv was a British industrialist who came to invent the now famous ‘Speedfit’ push fit fitting concept which is used in a host of industrial and domestic applications. Born as a Yorkshireman, he moved to the Middlesex area as a young boy. Having left school at 14, he was a member of the Home Guard and later enjoyed three years of service in the British Army after the Second World War. With no formal school qualifications he undertook a tool-making apprenticeship which gave him a passion for Engineering that would stay with him for the rest of his life. He founded John Guest Ltd in 1961. The company was, and still is today, headquartered in West Drayton. From his first day of work to his last, John Guest had a set of values and a business philosophy from which he never veered. He was a true champion of British engineering and even today all John Guest

products are designed and manufactured out of the UK . John Guest Ltd has a turnover of over £100 million, employs over 1200 people, and its product are sold in every corner of the globe. Notable awards for the company have included four Queen’s Awards for Export and Innovation, and a British Design Award. In 2011, the firm he created celebrates its 50th Anniversary, a landmark John Guest would have been proud to achieve. His great affection for the British Isles is reflected in his painting purchases. He loved British landscapes, firstly buying A.A. Glendenning paintings from Christopher Cole's art gallery in Beaconsfield, and then via Richard Green's art gallery in New Bond Street. More recently, he acquired a passion for still lifes which he started to buy by attending Sotheby's in New Bond Street.

£20,000-30,000

Dame Laura Knight was the first woman artist to be awarded the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1929 and in 1936 she became the first woman elected to the Royal Academy. Today she is best known for her striking depictions of the glamorous London ballet, theatre and circus, painting backstage during the Diaghilev ballet’s seasons in London and taking lessons at Tillers Dancing Academy in St Martin’s Lane in order to draw there. She also travelled with the Mills and Carmos Circus. An accomplished portrait painter, she painted wartime commissions and was the official artist at the Nuremberg War-Crime Trials. Knight’s roots however lie firmly in the Naturalist tradition of landscape and genre painting, which she first encountered at art school . Whilst studying at Nottingham School of Art, she saw an exhibition at the Nottingham Castle Museum, which included work by Newlyn, St Ives and Falmouth artists. She later recalled that ‘my favourite picture was Frank Bramley’s Hopeless Dawn. Tears came into my eyes I thought it so wonderful. There was also a little grey picture of Newlyn Bridge by Stanhope Forbes. I did not know anyone could paint like that.’

Knight lived and painted in the artist colonies of Staithes in North Yorkshire and Newlyn in Cornwall, before moving to London in 1919. Her time outside the capital allowed her to develop her style, reaching maturity during her time in Cornwall. Her subject matter shared the concerns of the plein-airist Newlyn, Staithes and Glasgow school of painters – to depict the everyday life of the rural population, whilst her technique was a loose naturalistic one, with acute awareness of light, the increasing use of bright colour and vigorous brushwork. This approach was in sharp contrast to many of the Academic paintings still shown at the Royal Academy each year, often depicting imagined historical or mythological subject matter in a highly finished and classically modelled technique. Artist Alfred Thornton, who was secretary of the New English Art Club, where many Newlyn and Glasgow artists exhibited described its exhibitions thus: ‘Into a hothouse of sentimentality in the late ‘eighties it blew again the fresh breath of the open air, of the vitality of the thing seen, of reality faced and its beauty sought out.’

Knight’s development in Cornwall, and is part of a series of paintings she composed between 1915 and 1919 all sharing an elevated viewpoint, dramatic diagonal composition, vibrant colour and the subject of ordinary country folk’s daily work. It most likely shows Sennen Cove, not far from Land’s End and Lamorna Cove, where Knight also liked to paint. The owner of the land at Lamorna, Colonel Paynter built a small wooden hut for her on the cliffs in which to store her canvases and materials and to offer shelter when the weather was inclement. Knight insisted on painting en plein air and only placed the finishing touches to her works in the studio. The bay is purposefully painted from a very high viewpoint, laying out the cove below in a dynamic diagonal composition which pulls the viewer into the pictorial space and guides them around the curve of the lapping water. The strong light sharply outlines the lines in the sand, which are picked out further by textured impasto. The backbreaking work of gathering seaweed is set against a scene of dramatic natural beauty, the shimmering waves lapping and the vibrant green on the shore.

The present painting perfectly demonstrates the height of

£8,000-12,000

Gaudier-Brzeska had an astonishingly short working life as a sculptor and a draughtsman, producing most of the body of his work whilst living in London between 1911 and 1913, when he was called to the Western Front. His rare and precocious talent was extinguished all too soon, in a charge at Neuville St. Vaast in France, in 1915 when Gaudier-Brzeska was just twenty four. The son of a carpenter, Henri Gaudier was born in 1891 in St Jean de Braye, a village near Orleans and the Loire. He distinguished himself at school with his ability to learn languages and won two scholarships, the first for two months, the second for two years to travel to England to study the language and business. He drew constantly, visiting London and the British Museum on several occasions even then. After studying in Germany, he

106

moved to Paris by 1909 and his letters reveal his conscious artistic development: ‘I have taken a decision – I am not going to do any more colour work but will restrict myself entirely to plastic. I have never been able to see colour detached from form… the drawing and the modelling were all I have been concerned with.’ Gaudier did not undertake formal art training, instead preferring to let his aesthetic and technique develop through constant drawing and sketching everything in sight. He was also in Paris at a time of intense artistic development. It is highly likely that he saw Picasso’s exhibition of new work at Ambroise Vollard’s gallery in Paris in 1909. His drawings and sculpture show that he had understood and digested the rapid advances of the avant-garde - both Fauvism and Cubism. We see those and especially the analytical approaches of Cubism and the interest in non-western art fully employed by Gaudier by 1911, successfully pushing the boundaries of representation

further. The principles and aesthetic of Cubism were reinterpreted by the Futurists in Italy and the Vorticists in England. Gaudier-Brzeska’s move to London in 1911 put him in contact with the latter’s Wyndham Lewis and Nevinson, providing an artistic milieu for the artist who contributed to Lewis’s magazine Blast! Vorticism’s particular interest in distilling action by representing it as a force lent itself to GaudierBrzeska’s own aesthetic agenda, much more so than the Futurists for example who were far more interested in the fragmenting and compartmentalising movement. The human body was a constant object of interest for the artist. One of the most remarkable of his sculptures, the Red Stone Dancer, demonstrates Gaudier’s uncanny ability to effortlessly simplify the geometry of the body, all the while retaining the powerful sense of force latent in his subject matter. His female figure drawings were observed from life at an evening sketch class in Chelsea, the present lot most

likely created in one of those sittings. Two types of drawings emerged from those sessions, those executed in ink and concentrating on a linear representation of form, and those executed in charcoal, like lot 149 which undertook to present volume in a different way. Brzeska had significant knowledge of the non-Western collections of the British Museum and found abundant material for inspiration and distillation of his own ideas of representation. The model in the present drawing is both reminiscent of Greek caryatid figures and of African tribal carvings. The directional shading of the pencil emphasises the primitive aspects of the line but also reveals Gaudier-Bzreska’s understanding and interest in Picasso’s experiments of understanding and analysing the structure of his subjects. The Victoria & Albert Museum holds a group of charcoal drawings in its collection which are very similar to the present lot and probably show the same model from the life class in Chelsea.

£20,000-30,000 Graham Sutherland is one of the most important British artists of the 20th century, forging a very individual approach to painting and citing William Blake, Turner and Samuel Palmer as significant influences over his art. He was firmly situated within the artistic climate of the mid-1900s, exhibiting at the International Surrealist Exhibition in London in 1936, remaining firm friends with Francis Bacon and keeping in contact with Picasso, after meeting him in France in the late 1940s. Sutherland briefly followed an engineering apprenticeship at the Midland Railway Works in Derby before pursuing his interest in painting and enrolling at Goldsmiths School of Art, where he subsequently taught. The greatest early influence on his work was the Welsh countryside, it figures largely in his large canvases from the 1930s. The subject matter allowed the artist to develop

112

his tendency to abstraction and anthropomorphism. Earlier still however and very formative was the time that Sutherland spent with his family in Swanage, Dorset in the two years before the First World Way: ‘I got into the habit of looking at things closely – observing, analysing and drawing everything in the countryside’. This practice played a major part in developing the young artist’s visual imagination and became a life-long passion. He continued to pursue his interest for intense observation right into the later parts of his career, as exemplified in the present work, which dates from 1963 and was probably painted in France. Sutherland first visited the Riviera in 1947, meeting with Matisse and Picasso. He returned to the South of France every year from then on and finally bought a house in Menton in 1955, where he was to remain and work for the next twenty years. It is common for artists to travel to the Mediterranean and to lighten their palette as a response to the very different light conditions.

What is interesting with Sutherland is that he introduced brighter colours to his post-Second World War work and in a sense anticipated his move to the Mediterranean. He recalls that ‘When I did start working in France, in 1947, I must confess that I did wonder how I had come to anticipate, by this lightening of key, the clarity of the steady southern light. Colour has two major functions. It is form and mood ... it is fascinating to make complete changes of colour in the background of a painting and see how the whole atmosphere changes’. The landscape surrounding the artist changed from the rich, varied and ‘moist’ one of Pembrokeshire, to the arid juxtapositions of plateau and the maritime alps of the Riviera. This had the effect of simplifying his compositions, away from landscape painting and towards focusing on a single, almost ‘still life’ object against an almost minimalist landscape, as exemplified in the present canvas. Sutherland would go for long

walks in the arid and sun beaten landscape around Menton and draw natural forms he came across, gourds, pomegranates, woven and anthropomorphic roots, thorn bushes and most pertinently for the current composition – cicadas and mantis. He was particularly interested in painting magnified images of the latter, endowing them, like his tangled roots, with human qualities. These canvases from the late 1940s have undeniably informed the present painting, which takes the subject of the creature and imbues it with both human and machine qualities, in a single monolithic form under the life-giving sun: ‘I love the sun. I like working in the sun….. It is life-giving… [objects] are more alive, more thoroughly and mysteriously themselves when I find them in sunlight’.

JOAN EARDLEY R.S.A. (1921-1963)

Joan Eardley emerges as one of the most important Scottish artists of the twentieth century, maintaining an assertive and unique aesthetic that encompassed a range of subject matter, as exemplified by the group of works by Eardley in this sale (lots 173-177). Born in Sussex, Joan fled London with her family when the threat of the Second World War became real. Living in Glasgow, the aspiring artist enrolled at Glasgow School of Art, having already spent a term at Goldsmiths’ in south London. She also studied at Hospitalfield, under James Cowie, with whom she frequently clashed over the painting style which was far too expressionistic for Cowie who would lecture her on the dangers of gestural expression in painting.

appropriate found objects such as flower heads or wheat in the oil paint, further enhancing the impastoed surface of her paintings and creating an impression of immediacy and spontaneity. Eardley’s subject matter covers both the urban and the rural. She is just as celebrated for her depiction of the tenements of Townhead and its errant dishevelled local children as she is for painting the wilds of rural Catterline, an East Coast village where she took a cottage in 1954. Lots 173, 175 and 177 represent the urban element of her work, from the higgledypiggledy buildings in Glasgow punctuated with significant colour and observed with a flowing and economical line of drawing, to the children she encountered running riot in alleys around her studio on Cochrane Street. Eardley welcomed the local children in her studio, always ready with comics and ‘a piece’ [sandwich]. She would then quickly sketch them whilst they played, or on rare occasions settled down with their books and food, or just to rest as appears to be the case in lot 175. Her depiction of childhood is an important contribution to that genre as it neither patronises nor burdens her subjects with adult concerns but rather depicts them with an immediacy, compassion and camaraderie that stemmed from getting to know them well from day to day and gaining their trust and respect. Eardley’s interest in painting the tenement children also stemmed from her desire to synthesise the essence of the city of Glasgow itself, which she felt they embodied very well, with their worldly and streetwise attitude. Eardley had always been interested in communicating the idea of the ‘primitive’ with her paintings, something which she achieved through the use of anti-naturalistic, almost Fauve-ist colour, bold and expressive brushstrokes and the refusal to simply copy nature. Her landscapes go furthest in pursuing this aesthetic, so much so that many touch on abstraction and take as their subject matter the painting surface itself, in particular where Eardley introduces real objects amongst the paint. By selecting one of the least ‘spoiled’, or modernised villages along the north east coast of Scotland to work in, she found a haven for her landscape painting, from the golden fields of harvest to the turbulent sea waves and snow nestled among the cottages. Eardley’s Catterline canvases are both descriptive and evocative in their sophisticated use of tone and thus mood. Experimenting with the horizon further allowed her to advance towards abstraction, always stopping short however on the figuration side.

£40,000-60,000

George Leslie Hunter was born on the Isle of Bute off the west coast of Scotland in 1877 and emigrated to San Francisco with his family in 1892. He did not undertake formal art training, and was largely self-taught, working as an illustrator to support himself financially and develop his drawings and painting skills. He was evidently aware of the rapid developments in art underway in the French capital at the beginning of the twentieth century and was able to travel to and stay in Paris for the first time in 1904. The first of many trips to France, this particular visit seems to have formulated his intention to become an artist as he maintained both his illustrating job and his painting when he returned to California and subsequently moved back to Scotland in 1907. Still life was by far the most popular of subject matters for the artist, almost exclusively occupying him in his early career. It is a convenient genre to work on as it can be executed in the studio on a fairly small scale, giving the artist larger degrees of control over his composition and more opportunity to experiment, unlike painting a model or a pre-composed landscape for example. Cézanne famously stated in

138

his conversations with Michael Doran that all the objects of his compositions became spheres, cylinders and cones and are moveable, so the artist would have easily been able to experiment with a variety of arrangements, light sources and relationships between the different masses.

second decade of the century is a plain, often dark background, dramatic chiaroscuro and the combination of both humble and luxurious objects assembled on the canvas, not unlike Kalf’s frequent assemblage of both kitchen utensils and crystal and silverware.

Hunter’s early still life paintings from 1910 to 1919 exhibit his overarching interest in the early masters of the genre, Willem Kalf and Jan Davidsz de Heem. He would have first seen their work in the museums of Glasgow. S J Peploe, who was to become a close friend later on in the artist’s career also notably admired the work of Kalf and the later still-life specialist Chardin – bringing back stacks of reproductions of the former’s work from a trip to Holland in 1895. Hunter first met Peploe through mutual friends Edward Archibald Taylor and his wife Jessie Marion King in Paris in 1910 but they did not become close friends until much later on in the 1920s. Their shared interest in the Dutch 17th century still life painters was not through mutual influence but nevertheless firmly informed both of the artists’ early works and undoubtedly nurtured their friendship later on in their careers. Typical of Hunter’s paintings from the

Hunter’s frequent trips to Paris whilst living in Scotland also meant that he came into contact with the work of Chardin and most importantly that of Edouard Manet, which certainly informed his painting technique with his broader and flatter brushstrokes which Hunter can be seen to use here. An introduction to art dealer Alex Reid launched Hunter’s career. His first solo exhibition in Glasgow in 1916 was a success and placed him in contact with an enclave of collectors who would support the artist over the next fifteen years, allowing him to travel more freely and as a result to develop his painting further, towards the light palette and even looser application we observe in the canvases from the 1920s onwards.

FRANCIS CAMPBELL BOILEAU CADELL R.S.A., R.S.W. (1883-1937)

Stepping from the labyrinthine streets of Venice into the lightflooded expanse of Piazza San Marco, one’s eyes are dazzled by the change from soft shade into brilliance, the glittering mosaics of the Basilica’s façade only slowly focusing into clear narrative scenes. It is a phenomenon repeated throughout la Serenissima, and one masterfully captured by Cadell in this painting of 1910. Our gaze is first overcome by the bravura brush strokes, the fierce red and orange rays of a morning sun over water, and it is only as we lower our eyes that we discern the darker forms of two gondolas and, emerging across the Bacino, Palladio’s masterpiece, the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore. The work, painted early in the artist’s career when, with the patronage of Patrick Ford, he embarked on an artistic pilgrimage with a rich cultural precedent, shows a freshness as engaging and puzzling as that of the city of Venice itself: no matter how many times she is portrayed on canvas or film, the city continues to enchant us, appearing at once familiar but also as mercurial as light playing across the surface of the lagoon. A trip to Venice had, for several hundred years, become a centre-piece of the Grand Tour, an integral part of a young gentleman’s personal development, and an artist’s education. While the former might immerse himself in the pleasures of Carnivale, the latter could observe the Venetian school’s championing of colour against the Florentine propensity for line and draughtsmanship. As Tom Hewlett observes, the time he spent in Venice marked something of a turning-point for Cadell: The effect of Venice on Bunty and his work was dramatic. The combination of the vivid Mediterranean colours with the brilliant sunshine during the day, and the soft warm tones of evening, provided the ideal inspiration for his natural colourist talent. It is fascinating to note that while the artist was undertaking exercises in colour as modern as those of Monet (who, at 68, had visited the city for the first time two years previously, in

1908, and was retouching similar scenes in his studio at the same time as the 27 year old Scot was painting in Venice), on the reverse of the painting we find, almost lost within a blaze of colour, the soft forms of nudes quite Renaissance in character, as though even while absent-mindedly testing colours, images captured from the artistic heritage that surrounds one in Venice were unconsciously coursing through his brush. The negotiation of colour versus line is a debate that each artist must resolve at some point in their career, however, and while this work of 1910 might show the influence of Monet, by the end of the First World War it was to Cézanne that Cadell’s work owed greater debt. A more structured approach emerges, his brushwork more controlled, with geometric form playing as great a role as a palette tending towards primary colours. One need only contrast his Interior of the Salute, Venice, of 1910, with 1922’s Interior, Iona Cathedral, to observe the transformation which has taken place in his work. While in the former Roman arches and Corinthian columns provide a backdrop, melting into the gold light cast from a chandelier, in the latter the curve of the arch frames the composition, and the columns which punctuate the picture plane provide the work’s dominant motif. Nevertheless, Iona, in the Western Isles, did prove a fresh source of inspiration for Cadell, away from the urbane Edinburgh interiors for which he has perhaps become most well known. As Harris and Halsby note: The stark white sands and the impressive views, together with the dramatically changeable weather conditions, were ideal subjects for Cadell’s style, and these landscapes tend to be more relaxed and painterly compared with his formal studio works. In such works as this, jewel-like in colour yet with the measuring influence of pattern, Cadell finally transcended a debate waged both within his own work and that of his predecessors for quite some time.

STANDARD TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE Lyon & Turnbull carries on business with bidders, buyers and all those present in the auction room prior to, or in connection, with a sale on the following General Conditions and on such other terms, conditions and notices as may be referred to herein. 1. DEFINITIONS In these Conditions: (a) “Auctioneer” means the firm of Lyon & Turnbull or its authorised auctioneer, as appropriate; (b) “deliberate forgery” means an imitation made with the intention of deceiving as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source but which is unequivocally described in the catalogue as being the work of a particular creator and which, at the date of the sale, had a value materially less than it would have had if it had been in accordance with the description; (c) “hammer price” means the level of bidding reached (at or above any reserve) when the auctioneer brings down the hammer; (d) “terms of consignment” means the stipulated terms and rates of commission on which Lyon & Turnbull accepts instructions from sellers or their agents; (e) “total amount due” means the hammer price in respect of the lot sold together with any premium, Value Added Tax chargeable and any additional charges payable by a defaulting buyer under these Conditions; (f) “sale proceeds” means the net amount due to the seller, being the hammer price of the lot sold less commission at the stated rate, Value Added Tax chargeable and any other amounts due to us by the seller in whatever capacity and however arising;

5. VALUE ADDED TAX Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all items affixed with an asterisk (*) or dagger (†). Value Added Tax is charged at the appropriate rate prevailing by law at the date of sale and is payable by buyers of relevant lots. 6. PAYMENT (1) Immediately a lot is sold you will: (a) pay to us the total amount due in cash or in such other way as is agreed by us. We accept cash, bank transfer (details on request), Switch or Debit Cards and Visa or MasterCard (please note there is a surcharge of 1.5% (VAT included) when using credit cards). We do not accept American Express. (2) any payments by you to us may be applied by us towards any sums owing from you to us on any account whatever without regard to any directions of you or your agent, whether express or implied. 7. TITLE AND COLLECTION OF PURCHASES (1) The ownership of any lots purchased shall not pass to you until you have made payment in full to us of the total amount due. (2) You shall at your own risk and expense take away any lots that you have purchased and paid for not later than four working days following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any cheque used for payment after which you shall be responsible for any removal, storage and other associated charges. (3) No purchase can be claimed or removed until it has been paid for. (4) It is the buyer’s responsibility to ascertain collection procedures, particularly if the sale is not being held at our main saleroom and the potential storage charges for lots not collected by the appropriate time.

(g) “You”, “Your”, etc. refer to the buyer as identified in Condition 2.

8. REMEDIES FOR NON-PAYMENT OR FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES

(h) The singular includes the plural and vice versa as appropriate.

(1) If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with these Conditions or if there is any other breach of these Conditions, we, as agent for the seller and on their behalf, shall at our absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights we may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies:

2. BIDDING PROCEDURES AND THE BUYER (a) Bidders are required to register their particulars before bidding and to satisfy any security arrangements before entering the auction room to view or bid; (b) the maker of the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer conducting the sale shall be the buyer at the hammer price and any dispute about a bid, which must be raised before the next lot is offered, shall be settled at the auctioneer’s absolute discretion. (c) Bidders shall be deemed to act as principals. (d) Once made, no bid may be withdrawn. (e) Our right to bid on behalf of the seller is expressly reserved up to the amount of any reserve and the right to refuse any bid is also reserved. 3. INCREMENTS Bidding increments shall be at the auctioneer’s sole discretion. 4. THE PURCHASE PRICE The buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon. Antiques, Jewellery & Silver and Pictures (Not Fine Sales) 17.5%. All other sales (Fine/Special/Collections) 25% up to £25,000 / 20% thereafter. VAT will be charged on the premium at the rate imposed by law.

(a) to proceed against you for damages for breach of contract; (b) to rescind the sale of that lot and/or any other lots sold by us to you; (c) to resell the lot (by auction or private treaty) in which case you shall be responsible for any resulting deficiency in the total amount due (after crediting any part payment and adding any resale costs). Any surplus so arising shall belong to the seller; (d) to remove, store and insure the lot at your expense and, in the case of storage, either at our premises or elsewhere; (e) to charge interest at a rate of 1.5% per month above the current base rate on the total amount due, to the extent it remains unpaid for more than four working days after the sale; (f) to retain that or any other lot sold to you until you pay the total amount due; (g) to reject or ignore bids from you or your agent at future auctions or to impose conditions before any such bids shall be accepted; (h) to apply any proceeds of sale of other lots due or in future becoming due to you towards the settlement of the total amount due and to exercise a lien (that is a right to

retain possession of) any of your property in our possession for any purpose until the debt due is satisfied. (2) We shall, as agent for the seller and on their behalf pursue these rights and remedies only as far as is reasonable to make appropriate recovery in respect of breach of these Conditions 9. THIRD PARTY LIABILITY All members of the public on our premises are there at their own risk and must note the lay-out of the accommodation and security arrangements. Accordingly neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury (except as required by law by reason of our negligence) or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to or at a sale. 10. COMMISSION BIDS While prospective buyers are strongly advised to attend the auction and are always responsible for any decision to bid for a particular lot and shall be assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves as to its condition we shall if so instructed clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the auctioneer or our employees or agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so. Where two or more commission bids at the same level are recorded we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to prefer the first bid so made. 11. WARRANTY OF TITLE AND AVAILABILITY

origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer or our employees or agents or the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 “information to buyers”. (2) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 16. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any Lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition.

The seller warrants to the auctioneer and to you that the seller is the true owner of the property consigned or is properly authorised by the true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims.

The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale.

12. AGENCY

GENERAL

The auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by sellers or buyers.

17. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person.

13. TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the lot. 14. STANDARD VENDOR FEES AND CHARGES (Subject to VAT) (1) Commission: 15% of the first £3000 and 10% thereafter is charged on the selling price of each lot (subject to a minimum charge of £30). Loss and damage warranty: 1.5% on value of lots sold. Photography: max £40 mono per lot, max £250 colour. Internet Marketing Service: £10 per lot. (2) If a vendor wishes to withdraw a lot consigned for sale, a withdrawal fee will apply; this will be charged at 15% of the mid estimate with any photography charges incurred and all subject to VAT at the current rate. 15. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (1) While we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness,

18 (1) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (2). Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them. 19. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 20. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items (Books, Jewellery, paintings, guns, firearms etc) in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary or guidance notes appearing in the catalogue. These notices and terms will also form part of our terms and conditions of sales. 21. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect. 22. Scottish law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.
