  3. 3. BUYERS’ COMMISSION 20% (excluding VAT) is added to the hammer price of all lots. No extra fee is charged for on-line bidding. ROOM BIDDERS 1. Room bidders must register and obtain a bidding number on arrival. Proof of identity is required from clients new to us. 2. If successful in obtaining a lot please ensure you display your number clearly to the auctioneer and that it is your number that is called out. If there is any doubt about the hammer price or buyer, please draw this to the attention of the auctioneer immediately. 3. Payment may be made by cash, bank draft, cleared cheque, debit or credit card — we accept Mastercard or Visa (a charge of 2% is made on credit card transactions). There is no charge on debit card transactions.. ABSENTEE BIDDING 1. If you are unable to attend you may bid before the sale, using the form provided. Enter the maximum you are prepared to offer for each lot and the auctioneer will represent you as if you are personally attending the sale. Lots are knocked down at one step above the next highest bid, and not necessarily at your highest bid. Example: your bid is €1,000 and next highest bid is €800 – the hammer price is €850. 2. LIMIT BIDDING: Absentee bidders may limit their total purchases to a set amount by entering their limit on the bidding form. This is especially useful for bidders wishing to cover as many lots as possible while setting a maximum amount to spend. 3. “OR” BIDDING: Absentee bidders who wish to bid on two or more lots, but only wish to purchase one, may do so by entering “OR” between the bids – the lots will be bid on in catalogue order. 4. EQUAL BIDS: In the event of equal bids being received for the same lot the first received will be given preference. If the instruction “break ties” is entered on the bid form the auctioneer will increase the bid by one step in the event of equal bids being received or in the event of a tie with a room bidder. 5. “BUY” BIDS: Unless otherwise instructed bids of “Buy” or “Buy at Best” shall be taken to indicate bids of up to three times the stated higher estimate in the catalogue. 6.

  6. 6. 5 WHYTESS I N C E 1 7 8 3 , Whyte & Sons Auctioneers Limited, trading as Whyte’s, exercises all reasonable care to ensure that all descriptions are reliable and accurate, and that each item is genuine unless the contrary is indicated. However, the descriptions are not intended to be, are not and are not to be taken to be, statements of fact or representations of fact in relation to the lot. They are statements of the opinion of Whyte’s, and attention is particularly drawn to clause 5 set out below. Comments and opinions, which may be found in or on lots as labels, notes, lists, catalogue prices, or any other means of expression, do not constitute part of lot descriptions and are not to be taken as such unless they are made or specifically verified by Whyte’s. Clause 1 (a) Each lot is put up subject to any reserve price imposed by the vendor (b) Subject to sub-clause (a) of this clause, the highest bidder for each lot shall be the buyer thereof (c) If any dispute arises as to the highest bidder the auctioneer shall have absolute discretion to determine the dispute and may put up again and re-sell the lot in respect of which the dispute arises Clause 2 (a) The bidding and advances shall be regulated by and at the absolute discretion of the auctioneer and he shall have the right to refuse any bid or bids. NOTE: Where an agent bids, even on behalf of a disclosed client, the auctioneer nevertheless has the right at his discretion to refuse any such bid. (b) The buyer of each lot shall immediately on its sale, if required by the auctioneer, give him the name and address of the buyer and pay to Whyte’s at his discretion the whole or part of the purchase money. If the buyer of any lot fails to comply with any such requirement Whyte’s may put up again and re- sell the lot; if upon such re-sale a lower price is obtained than was obtained on the first sale the buyer in default on the first sale shall make good the difference in price and expenses of re-sale which shall become a debt due from him. (c) Where an agent purchases on behalf of an undisclosed client such agent shall be personally liable for payment of the purchase money to Whyte’s and for safe delivery of the lot to the said client. Clause 3 (a) Whyte’s reserves the rights to bid on behalf of clients including vendors, but shall not be liable for errors or omissions in executing instructions to bid. (b) Whyte’s reserves the rights, before or during a sale, to group together lots belonging to the same vendor, to split up and to withdraw any lot or lots at Whyte’s absolute discretion and without giving any reason in any case. (c) Whyte’s acts as agent only, and therefore shall not be liable for any default of the buyer or vendor. Clause 4 (a) Each lot shall be at the buyer’s risk from the fall of the hammer and shall be paid for in full before delivery and taken away at his expense within one day of the sale. The buyer will be responsible for all removal, storage and insurance charges in respect of any lot which has not been collected within 7 days of the date of sale. (b) If any buyer fails to pay in full for any lot within 7 days of the date of sale such lot may at any time thereafter at Whyte’s discretion be put up for sale by auction again or sold privately; if upon such re-sale a lower price is obtained than was obtained on the first sale the buyer in default on the first sale shall make good the difference in price and the expenses of re-sale which shall become debt due from him. (c) Interest at 2 per cent per month and legal costs (if any) for recovery of monies due shall be payable by the buyer on any overdue account. Clause 5 (a) All lots are made available for inspection before each sale and each buyer, by making a bid, acknowledges that he has satisfied himself as to the physical condition, age and catalogue description of each lot (including but not restricted to whether the lot is damaged or has been repaired or restored). (b) All lots are sold with all faults and imperfections and errors of description and Whyte’s and its employees, servants or agents shall not be responsible for any error of description or for the condition or authenticity of any lot, save for Clause 5 (c) below. Written or verbal condition reports may be supplied by Whyte’s on request but these are merely statements of opinion, and any error or omission in these reports may not be taken as grounds for a cancellation of sale or refund of any part of the purchase price or the cost of any repairs to the lot or lots reported on. (c) If any lot sold at this auction is subsequently proved to be a “deliberate forgery”, Whyte’s will cancel the sale and refund to the buyer the total amount paid by the buyer for the item, in the currency of the original sale. The onus of proving a lot to be a “deliberate forgery” is on the buyer. For these purposes, “deliberate forgery” means a lot that in Whyte’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created to deceive as to authorship, where the correct description of such authorship is not reflected by the description in the catalogue (taking into account any Glossary of Terms). No lot shall be considered a deliberate forgery by reason only of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work of any kind (including repainting or overpainting). This guarantee does not apply if (i) either the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; (ii) or the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical to use; or likely to have caused damage to the lot or likely (in Whyte’s reasonable opinion) to have caused loss of value to the lot; or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the lot from its value had it been in accordance with its description. This guarantee is provided for a period of seven (7) years after the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the buyer and may not be transferred to any third party. Whyte’s has discretion to extend the guarantee for a longer period. To be able to claim under this Guarantee, the buyer must (i) notify Whyte’s in writing within three (3) weeks of receiving any information that causes the buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the item, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is thought to be a deliberate forgery; and (ii) return the item to Whyte’s in the same condition as the date of the sale to the buyer and be able to transfer good title in the item, free from the third party claims arising after the date of the sale. Whyte’s has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Whyte’s may require the buyer to obtain at the buyer’s cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Whyte’s and the buyer. Whyte’s shall not be bound by any reports produced by the buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Whyte’s decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund the buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports. (d) Any lot listed as a “mixed lot, collection, range, portfolio etc.” or stated to comprise or contain a collection or range of items which are not described shall be put up for sale not subject to rejection and shall be taken by the buyer with all (if any) faults, lack of genuineness and errors of description and numbers of items in the lot, and the buyer shall have no right to reject the lot; except that, notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this sub-clause, where before a sale a person intending to bid at the sale gives notice in writing to, and satisfies Whyte’s that any such lot contains any item or items not described in the sale catalogue and that person specifically describes that item or those items in that notice, then that item or those items shall, as between Whyte’s and that person, to be taken to form part of the description of the lot. Clause 6 The respective rights and obligations of the parties shall be governed and interpreted by Irish law, and the buyer hereby submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish Courts. SPECIAL CONDITIONS (a) The buyer shall pay Whyte’s a commission at the rate of 20% (plus VAT under The Margin Scheme and which is not reclaimable). (b) Whyte’s or its employees, servants or agents may, on request organise packing and shipping of lots purchased or may order on the buyer’s behalf third parties to pack or ship purchases. Under no circumstances does Whyte’s accept any liability whatsoever for any loss or damage howsoever occasioned in the course of such service. (c) The buyer authorises Whyte’s to use any photographs or illustrations of any lot purchased for any or all purposes as Whyte’s may require. The placing of a bid will be taken as full agreement to all the above conditions. WHYTE & SONS AUCTIONEERS LIMITED 38 Molesworth Street, Dublin 2 TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE NOTICE

(66 by 53cm) Exhibited: ‘An Exhibition of 17th - 20th Century Irish Paintings’, Gorry Gallery, Dublin, 19 May to 2 June 2010, catalogue no. 30 (illustrated p.28) Provenance: O’Sullivan, Niamh, Aloysius O’Kelly: Art Nation, Empire, Dublin 2010, catalogue no. 81 O’Kelly executed a number of portraits of elderly men and women to exude character.These demonstrate his vigorous prowess as a portrait painter.What these portraits show is a progressively fluid and impressionistic treatment, as the handling becomes looser and livelier. The fisherman is dressed in his working clothes, smock and sabots. Pannier at his feet, he is smiling and at ease. Although verging on the monochromatic he seems to be full of the joys of life. Somewhat unusually for O’Kelly – who tends towards solemn when treating the fishermen and farmers, the labourers of the western seaboards of France and Ireland – this one has the air of a bon viveur. Sitting by the rustic table, bottle to hand, traces of Bonnat’s influence, specifically his rugged naturalism, can clearly be discerned. In the virtuosity of draughtsmanship, these portraits are a tribute to Gérôme while the loose yet controlled brushwork, broad values, and the use of dramatic light and shade are a testimony to Bonnat’s realist teaching. But, ultimately, O’Kelly’s portraits are his own. From the late 1870s through to his old age, he produced a range of rural portraits of considerable power. Although psychologically penetrative, in many respects these portraits are less about the individual than the human condition. We are grateful to the Gorry Gallery and Prof. Niamh O’Sullivan for their permission to reproduce this note. €5,000-€7,000 (£4,130-£5,790 approx.)

Re: An Officer, 1923 Submitted for the annual exam at the Royal Academy Schools, 1924.This is possibly a portrait of the artist’s husband Hugh C. Reid, who served in the Colonial Office in Nigeria.The pair married in June 1923 in St Stephen’s Church, Dublin. Reid returned to Nigeria immediately after, only to contract black water fever and die in February 1924. Born Eileen Oulton, she lived most of her life at 19 Upper Mount St., Dublin. Interested in both art and music, she studied first at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and later at the RA School of Art London. Her early paintings show the influence of William Orpen who was a friend of the family. She married in 1923 but was widowed within a year, and soon afterwards abandoned oil painting in favour of watercolours. She was secretary for the WCSI for over 30 years , allowing administrative work to come before her own art. A retrospective was held at the Cynthia O’Connor Gallery in 1984.

In an essay on artists’ haunts in 1909 he described a city that throughout the nineteenth century had provided writers and painters with an instant authentic experience of Muslim culture.1 A short sea crossing from the southernmost tip of Europe, its souks, mosques, and moonlit rooftop music and dancing formed an essential part of the texture of western European Orientalism. Graham’s observations are confirmed by the series of small luminous oil sketches recently produced by his close friend, John Lavery, and reproduced to illustrate the article.2 It took a painter to tell him what he was seeing and on several occasions he pays tribute to the artist – theirs was a lifelong friendship. Lavery had known the ‘adventurer- laird of Gartmore’ for at least eighteen years and recently, in company with The Times correspondent,Walter Harris, they had ridden across the desert together to visit the Sultan’s court at Fez.3 But it was the ‘white houses, sands like snow, and, above all … dazzling white atmosphere’ of the old coastal city overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar that enchanted them. In the maze of the Kasbah, ‘the Arabs flitted to and fro, silent as shadows … they seemed like a population of uncloistered friars’, said Graham in his introduction to the catalogue of Lavery’s exhibition in 1904.4 He could easily have been looking at the present picture. Under a vivid cobalt canopy the whitewashed houses glowed in the sunlight, and sharp shadows cut rectangles of pale blue, violet and ochre – their irregular shapes, performing an abstract theatre, that momentarily disorientated the western eye. Lavery first confronted this marquetry of intersecting planes in 1891 in a small study painted from the rooftop of the Hotel Continental (fig 1), but it was only on subsequent visits that the secrets of narrow alleyways revealed themselves in the furtive glance from a doorway in the infamous Rue des Femmes, or the bustle of figures retreating up the hill from the souk at the call to prayer. This was the essential appeal of a setting vividly described by the Irish painter, Norman Garstin, when in 1897 he wrote to fellow artists, … that wall in front of you is homely whitewash, and steeped for a moment in a violet shade; a door opens and a rectangular slab of yellow white light from the opposite wall of the patio makes you blink and deepens the violet of the near wall; purple patches of shade stain the patio’s red tiles with silhouetted pictures of fig leaves …5 This was Lavery’s quest in small studies that, like the present example, were painted not as preparations for larger works, but as ends in themselves.They were vivid snapshots of familiar corners that he would give to painter-friends like Alfred East – and others like Cunninghame Graham.6 Such pictures are difficult to date precisely, although it is likely that A Street in Tangier, precedes the trip to Fez in 1906. Its specific location and the vantage point from which it was painted remain to be determined – although it is likely to show the winding street that leads up into the Kasbah. Throughout the years 1891-1920, when he visited Morocco regularly, Welsh, Scots, English, Canadian and French artists - Frank Brangwyn, Arthur Melville, Alfred East, James Wilson Morrice and Henri Matisse – all felt the rejuvenating effect of the ‘white atmosphere’ of Tangier, but it was Lavery, in small stunning pictures of the streets of the old city who definitively caught it.

In Lavery’s account, he helped to rescue Graham from a group of belligerent Moors when he was haranguing them on his favourite topics – Free Speech and Democracy – neither of which they could remotely comprehend; see Walter Shaw Sparrow, John Lavery and his Work, n.d.

(53 by 46cm) Provenance: Family of the artist Although she studied art in Paris in 1905 and 1906 where she was amongst the first Irish artists to see the work of Pablo Picasso, Swanzy did not begin making and exhibiting Cubist inspired work until the 1920s and 1930s. She was one of Ireland’s most innovative exponents of this approach, using it in imaginative ways in a range of landscapes, figure studies and paintings of propellers. As she never dated her paintings, it is difficult to be precise about the chronology of the work, but she appears to have made and exhibited most of her Cubist inspired paintings after 1920. Having moved back to Dublin from Paris, Swanzy continued to travel widely visiting London, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Polynesia and the United States. She maintained contact with the French art world throughout the 1910s and 1920s, exhibiting at and becoming a committee member of the Salon des Independants, the largest show of modern art in Paris. Her work was shown at this venue alongside that of the Orphic cubists, Sonja and Robert Delaunay. Orphism, a hugely influential movement, was concerned with the impact of light and colour on the vision of the artist.The paintings of Robert Delaunay are preoccupied with aeronautical flight and altitude through which he could demonstrate how form is made of pure colour.The influence of these ideas is apparent in Trees. The bright colours and dynamic geometric patterning of the composition of Trees are also evocative of speed and movement. Swanzy was clearly aware of Italian Futurism and British Vorticism when she painted the work. Both movements stress the importance of dynamism in art and of representing technology. The railway track or roadway in the foreground of Trees suggests movement through the landscape resulting in a distortion of the forms. Swanzy’s father was a well-known ophthalmic surgeon and her fragmentation of the composition is equally reminiscent of ophthalmic lenses and optical devices. The giant pink trees with their swaying yellow barks are probably inspired by the exotic vegetation that Swanzy saw on her travels to Samoa and Hawaii in the 1920s.The tall towers in the distance (to the right) recur in several of her paintings, a memory of San Gimignano, the medieval city in Tuscany, near to Florence where the artist lived for a period before World War One. Swanzy draws on her vast experiences of travel and modern art in her work.The result is an inventive and unique engagement with Cubism and Futurism that was not always valued by her contemporaries in Dublin which she left in 1926 to settle with her sister in London.The originality of her work, however, ensured Swanzy’s rediscovery as one of Ireland’s most significant modernist painters at the end of her life in the 1960s and 1970s when she finally enjoyed critical and commercial success. Trees is an important example of her Cubist work. Dr. Róisín Kennedy April 2014 €15,000-€18,000 (£12,400-£14,880 approx.)

In 1921 the young Irish artists Mainie Jellett and Evie Hone arrived in Paris to study with the Cubist master André Lhote. Jellett and Hone had studied in London under Walter Sickert where they absorbed important lessons in anatomy and classical portraiture, but this wasn’t enough, they wanted to be ‘modern’ and in the early 1920s the terms ‘Modern’ and ‘Cubist’ were synonymous. Lhote was one of the first generation of Cubists, having shown in the second public exhibition of Cubism at the Salon des Indépendents of 1912. Following the Armistice in late 1918, cultural activity was renewed in Paris and Lhote opened an academy where a significant number of Irish artists were taught to paint along cubist principles. From work produced by Jellett at this time, we know that working from the nude model, seated portraits, and still-lifes were central to the curriculum. For Jellett and Hone this was too similar to the training they had received in London, so in 1922 they famously asked to be taken on as students by the painter Albert Gleizes, who had neither an academy nor an open studio. Gleizes had been developing a form of Cubist abstraction more in tune with Mondrian than Picasso and in 1920 published ‘Du Cubisme et les moyens de le comprendre’1, arguing that “Cubism had been a search for a precise scientific method to replace the old scientific method of single point perspective, and that the essential elements of this new method are now known”2. Working together, the artists developed a system of ‘translation and rotation’ the early result of which, Jellett’s Painting, 1923 (National Gallery of Ireland) was shown at the Dublin Painters Gallery that year to critical derision. Although on first glance Painting ,1923 is abstract, closer inspection of the format, composition, medium, and patterning relate it directly to early Renaissance religions icons like Cimabue’s Maestà (c.1280).This was not co-incidental. Although much of the modern movement was fiercely secular, Gleizes, Jellett and Hone maintained a deeply Christian faith and sought to integrate Christian imagery into their modern vision.Through the mid-20s they worked on a series of ‘Elements’ paintings – largely abstract exercises in colour and form. In 1927-28 Jellett produced her major work Homage to Fra Angelico, a cubist interpretation of Angelico’s Coronation of the Virgin (c.1435, Louvre, Paris).This is a mature work in Jellett’s oeuvre demonstrating the successful cubist reduction of a form with traditional religious content, something we also see in the present work, Painting, 1930. An unusual feature of Homage to Fra Angelico and Painting is the colour palette. In the case of Homage the colours range from mustard- green through to taupe and similarly Painting, 1930, utilises ochres and umbers reminiscent of brick burned by the sun. It is likely that the ‘L’Exposition des Arts Décoratifs’ in Paris in 1925 may have influenced this.This major exhibition of Art Deco included pavilions from around the Francophone world such as the colonies Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria and so the colours and light of North Africa would have permeated the visual plane.The source of the vertical, tripartite composition of Painting, 1930, can be compared to a typical quattrocento painting like Perugino’s Madonna and Child with St John the Baptist and St Sebastian (1493) which could be considered an evolution from the earlier work by Cimabue. Certainly the composition of Painting, 1930 reflects the architectural setting within a vaulted space, with the Virgin and Child seated on a dais. Jellett would go on to further simplify this composition in one of her most important works The Madonna of Éire (1943, NGI) in which Saints Patrick and Brigid are seen either side of the Virgin. In these late works, Jellett combines influences from Celtic art and familiar images of the Virgin but produces a resolutely ‘modern’ image thereby making cubism and abstraction more palatable to a conservative audience.

It is both a scene of everyday life in mid-century Ireland and a valuable historical record of a particular time and place. Born in Drogheda in 1905, Nano Reid studied and worked in Dublin, London and Paris before she eventually settled back in her home town. During the 1950s Reid painted several works inspired by Drogheda including Where the Ships Unload, Old Town by the River and the large mural she painted for her family’s pub.That mural, now in the Drogheda Municipal Collection and on display in the Highlanes Gallery, is stylistically similar to Salmon Fishing on the Boyne and dates from the same period c. 1950. Although Salmon Fishing on the Boyne was not intended to be documentary and includes the Modernist distortions of scale and perspective that were typical of Reid’s work in this period, it still constitutes a valuable record of a traditional way of life. For centuries salmon fishing was an important source of food and revenue for those who lived along the Boyne.There were around forteen fishing stations on the river and while it is difficult to identify the exact location of this scene, it may be an area of the river bank close to the town centre, which is known as The Ramparts. According to Leo Boyle, Boyne salmon fishermen had a particular method of working which involved two men. One man stayed on shore holding a rope attached to the net, while the other rowed out into the river with the other end of the net. Once the whole net was spread out, the boatman rowed back to shore and the two men pulled the net to shore, trapping fish as it went.1 In Reid’s painting the catch has been hauled in.Two fishermen are inspecting (or mending) the net, while a third man pulls a rope through the water.Two small row boats are moored nearby and more can be seen across the river.The chimney-like structures on the far shore resemble the lime kilns that were a historic feature of this area. Despite the years that she spent in Dublin, Reid always attributed her initial interest in art to Drogheda and the Boyne. In 1974 she told the journalist Martin Dillon, What started me off was an interest in the prehistoric Irish remains. An interest grew up around all that and the natural thing was to paint it. ... I looked around me more and painted what appealed to me in an emotional way.The thing is I have to have a subject that I feel about and the only ones I feel about are those places (Boyne Valley).There is no use in trying to paint a place I have no feeling for.The essence of a place is very important to me.2 In addition to its subject matter, Salmon Fishing on the Boyne is successful in purely formal terms.The composition is unusual but balanced and there are notable formal elements such as the group of swans, whose dynamic bobbing is echoed and emphasised through the reflections in the river and the hatching of the fishing net. Curves flow through the composition from the outline of the shore to the boats, nets, rope and men’s baggy trousers.The shape of the boats echoes the fish and the fishermen’s flat caps.The warm palette dominated by yellows, pinks and blues, contradicts those critics who have condemned Reid’s use of earthy greens and browns in later paintings including Cave of the Firbolg (Collection Arts Council of Ireland). Ultimately, Salmon Fishing on the Boyne proves that, despite being so firmly rooted in a particular place, Reid could produce work of universal appeal.

Many of his most popular, and important, paintings depict scenes of everyday life on the west coast of Ireland. He first visited the west in 1939 and became enchanted with the landscape and the people, making them the major theme of his work throughout the 1940s and 1950s. Home with the Catch is a western scene where a young family make their way through the village with their daily catch of fish. Fish were both a staple of their diet and a commodity that they could trade.Their clothing is recognisable as the traditional dress once common in Connemara and the Aran Islands.The woman’s red skirt and white woollen jumper along with the man’s baggy woollen trousers and waistcoat and their simple leather shoes, known as pampooties, locate this image in a particular time and place. Stylistically similar to Irish Peasant Children (c.1949), this work also resembles the young couple carrying fish depicted in Dillon’s textile work Gentle Breeze, which he hand stitched in 1952. Recalling his first experience of the western seaboard, Dillon wrote that the west was ‘a great strange land of wonder to the visitor from the red-brick city’.1 Like many artists and writers before him, he held a romantic view of the west as both the locus of an authentic Irish culture and a ‘primitive’ place, free from many of the restraints of wider Irish society.Writing in 1955, he claimed that Connemara is ‘the place for a painter’ and eulogising about the variety of the rugged landscape, the quality of the light and the simplicity of daily life, concluded: ‘one could live here forever but being neither a fisherman nor farmer, but only a painter, I’m forced to come back to city life to sell work – and hope to save enough to come back to Connemara’.2 Although Dillon recognised that he was an outsider in Connemara, during the period he spent living on Inishlacken in 1950, he adopted elements of traditional dress, travelled back and forth to the mainland in a currach and embraced the way of life wholeheartedly. As James White pointed out: ‘For a nationalist Catholic like Gerard Dillon, living in London and desperately wanted to belong to a Republican nation called Ireland ... Connemara with its remoteness, its delightful stonewall fields, mountains, lakes and seacoast and above all islands like Inishlacken where he could cut himself off for a spell and live in a tiny cottage, with no social life to speak of and a boat journey away from barracks, church or pub – all this gave him the feeling of having found a land free of all the restrictions of oppression which he had come to accept as being there to offend him’.3 Dillon’s initial interest in painting the west and its inhabitants was sparked by Seán Keating’s illustrations for Playboy of the Western World.William Conor’s focus on the daily lives of working people in Ulster was another early influence. In Home with the Catch, Dillon brings these influences together to create an original vision of the west which combines romance and realism.

While the female figure occurred frequently in his work from previous decades it was often seen in a more narrative or symbolic context. These paintings depict a female figure, highly abstracted and depersonalised, with no setting or attributes that identify her. Even the titles of the works refrain from any detail, conceding only the most basic details of the subject and the date of its production. It is interesting to compare the series of work to which Seated Figure 6.72 belongs to the single figure paintings of the early 1950s, such as Gypsy, Ardglass or Teresa, both of which remove all context from the actual painting and concentrate almost entirely on the sitter, but also suggest a specific identity, place or narrative in the title. Seated Figure 6.72 is more schematised than these in its treatment of the female figure, although it retains the strong sense of physical presence that these earlier works share.The figure is sexualised but not eroticised and the interlocked hands evoke a more awkward presence and a suggestion of tension.While many of the Seated Figure group use an extremely reduced palette there is a much stronger and wider range of colour in the present painting. Rather than looking back at the formalised synthesis of nude with landscape that Middleton experimented with in the 1960s Seated Figure 6.72, in its palette and stronger forms, seems to look forward to the often vibrantly colourful and more geometric female figures of Middleton’s late Spanish paintings. Blocks of flat colour and shape reiterate the flatness of the picture plane and contrast with the volumetric female form.The physical surface of the prepared board is also noticeable across the work, maintaining the sense of controlled design.The repeated vertical strokes of various scales that run throughout the work recall Middleton’s landscapes of the period, suggesting spatial depth, but ultimately the isolation of the figure is deliberate and adds to the focus on the formal construction of the work. Clearly Middleton felt that this group of female nudes was at the heart of his work at this time, as the earlier Seated Figure K.371.1 was selected to represent him in the 1971 publication Causeway. In addition, Middleton selected the present work to be included in the Arts Council’s 1976 touring retrospective of his work. Dickon Hall April 2014 €25,000-€35,000 (£20,660-£28,930 approx.)

(46 by 56cm) Provenance: Collection of Vincent Ferguson; Whyte’s, 18 November 2003, lot 63; Private collection Painted circa 1951-1953, Man Sea and Sky is an extremely early example of Deborah Brown’s work, predating her move into abstract painting and later sculpture. Born in Belfast, she enrolled at the Belfast College of Art in 1946, spending only twelve months there before switching to the National College of Art in Dublin. Upon completing her formal studies in 1950 she went to Paris for a year, absorbing the lessons of the Old Masters whilst simultaneously stimulated by contemporary trends in art. Upon returning to Belfast in 1951 she met with great success when the Arts Council of Northern Ireland gave her a solo show in their gallery at Donegall Place. Anne Crookshank has noted of Brown’s work of this period: “her painting was still realist, if already notably simplified, and great attention was focused on the forms created by the brushstrokes”.1 In this sense it was typical of much of the best work being produced in Belfast at the time by artists such as Basil Blackshaw and T. P. Flanagan, who in turn were influenced by the slightly older generation of artists who had styled themselves in the thirties as the Ulster Unit. Indeed, Man Sea and Sky bears comparison with both Blackshaw’s similarly titled Men, Sea and Moon of 1952, and with Daniel O’Neill and Colin Middleton’s work of the late forties and early fifties in which figures are pressed up close to the picture plane and brooding dark colours lend the scenes a poetic romanticism. 1 Deborah Brown: A Selected Exhibition of Works Completed Between 1947-1982, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Belfast, 1982, unpaginated €1,200-€1,500 (£990-£1,240 approx.) 76 Anne Yeats (1919-2001) THEATRE SCENE oil on canvas 14 by 12in.
