  • Literature: A Broadside, Dun Emer Press, No.1, June 1908, reproduced as the first of two illustrations to John Masefield’s poem Campeachy Picture; Hilary Pyle, The Different Worlds of Jack B. Yeats: His Cartoons and Illustrations, Irish Academic Press, Dublin, 1994, p. 243, catalogue no. 1743
  • A buccaneer is at sea, steering his ship. There is an aura of romance in the taut image, enhanced with strong brief details of the wheel, the carved prow, the choppy waves, an island or land behind. His eyes are dreamy. Yeats indicates the earrings, the sailor’s muscular hand, and the pirate scarf knotted about his head. The Gulf of Campêche, or Campeachy, lies within the Gulf of Mexico, on the coast of Yucatan, a Mecca of romance for Yeats and his friend, the poet John Masefield (1878-1967). In his book On the Spanish Main (published in 1906 and dedicated to Jack B. Yeats), Masefield describes the rise of the buccaneers, who in between their attacks on the Spanish Main, when trade was slack, would repair to Campeachy to cut logwood, construct new vessels (and have a rest). Masefield’s poem, Campeachy Picture, an ideal subject for Yeats, was the first poem in his new venture, A Broadside, launched at his sister’s Dun Emer Press in June 1908. This image of the buccaneer adorns the title page of the three page quarto-size art publication. 300 copies were printed. The following month, July 1908, the Yeats sisters parted company with Evelyn Gleeson who had set up the Dun Emer Industries to found the Cuala Industries from which A Broadside continued to be published monthly (A Broadside no. 1, June 1908, is the only number with the Dun Emer imprint). The first edition of A Broadside was also the only issue to be illustrated solely by Jack B. Yeats.

THE HOUSE-TOPS, TANGIER
Sir John Lavery RA RHA RSA (1856-1941)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 17 February 2004 / 57

Published Estimate: €40,000-50,000

Price Realised: €38000

  • Signature: signed lower left; inscribed and dated 1912 on reverse
  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 25 by 36cm., 10 by 14in.
  • Provenance: Presented by the artist to the Belfast Red Cross Fund, 1917; Collection of Molly Lawrence, Belfast; The Lawrence Collection Sale, Ross's, Belfast, 6 February 2002, lot 66
  • Lavery first visited the so called ‘White City’, Tangier, in 1891, possibly as an antidote to the demands placed on him as a society portraitist. Morocco was then becoming a mecca for British artists who were attracted to the brilliant white light, exotic colours, and “the abstract drama of shape … found in its slab-like architecture”1. From thereon Lavery made repeated trips to Tangier, basing himself and his family at the small hillside property called Dar El Midfah, a little way out from the main town, and becoming a well-known feature of the expatriate community’s social scene. The House-Tops Tangier shares much in common with a number of works which Lavery exhibited in London at the Goupil Gallery in 1908. Kenneth McConkey records that for many of the smaller works from this exhibition, “Lavery positioned himself upon rooftops overlooking the city. Invariably the foreground was occupied by one or two Arab musicians sitting on or behind a parapet wall. As he discovered, the rooftops of Tangier generated their own form of life. Beyond them, the slab-like tower of the Green Mosque became a familiar landmark. Lavery’s repeated engagement with this subject at different times of the day amounted almost to an obsession”2. Unlike a number of his genre scenes from Morocco which were painted in the studio, The House-Tops Tangier was painted en plein air, around dusk. The high horizon reveals a sky imbued with pale violet tints, whilst the whitewashed buildings have taken on the subtle shell-pinks and warm creams of the setting sun’s last rays. The distant hillside of buildings at the left of the composition is suggested by mere notation: rapid impasto strokes indicating the mass of walls and roofs. In contrast, the Mediterranean sea is painted with long smooth strokes in cerulean streaked with mauve. For all its rapid execution, Lavery evidently considered the work complete, for in 1917 he donated it to the Belfast Red Cross Fund, most likely at the instigation of his wife Hazel who was then heavily involved with war charity work. 1 Kenneth McConkey, Sir John Lavery, Canongate Press, Edinburgh, 1993, p.83 2 McConkey, op. cit., pp.94-95

EARLY MORNING ON THE SHANNON
EARLY MORNING ON THE SHANNON
Joseph Malachy Kavanagh RHA (1836-1918)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 17 February 2004 / 58

Published Estimate: €12,000-15,000

Price Realised: 

  • Signature: signed lower left; remains of a label inscribed in a later hand on reverse
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 61 by 91cm., 24 by 36in.
  • Kavanagh was born in Dublin and trained in Antwerp, along with other notable Irish artists of his generation including Walter Osborne, Thomas Moynan, Nathaniel Hill and Henry Allan. Studying under the Belgian painter, Charles Verlat, these young Irish artists “bore the indelible print of their disciplined northern training, where a student was taught to draw and paint in a realistic and precise manner. The seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish artists were held up as models, and the Realism of Courbet was even more enthusiastically received in Belgium and Holland than in his native France”1. Landscape was a highly regarded genre, and the people who lived closest to the land - shepherds, farm hands, cockle pickers and so on - became favoured subjects. Upon returning to Dublin in 1869 Kavanagh continued to paint in a similar vein, applying his Northern European training to local subjects. He was elected as a full member of the RHA in 1876 and appointed Academy Keeper in 1910. During the 1916 Easter Rising the Academy’s premises in Abbey Street were destroyed by fire; Kavanagh made a narrow escape, with only a few sundry documents. The majority of his works were destroyed. The present work dates to circa 1903, around which time he painted a number of large landscapes with such titles as The Lordly Shannon (ex. RHA, 1901), In the Valley of the Liffey (RHA, 1903), Whispering Leaves and Wandering Sheep (RHA, 1905) and The Shannon (RHA, 1910). 1 Ethna Waldron, ‘Joseph Malachy Kavanagh’, Taizé, 1968, p.326.

  • Dimensions: 38 by 51cm., 15 by 20in.
  • Provenance: Fine Art Society, New Bond Street, London, whence purchased in December 1930 (typed label on reverse)
  • During the 1930s Craig showed more than 200 paintings with the Fine Art Society in London, preferring the opulent Victorian gallery to that of the stuffier confines of the Royal Academy. Established in 1886, the Society pioneered the concept of the one-man show; Whistler, Seargent and Sickert all exhibited there. Craig is recorded as having been granted at least three solo exhibitions with the Society, in 1933, 1935 and 1937. He was also included in many of their group exhibitions, including the 1928 exhibition of Irish artists, in which Paul Henry, E. L. Lawrensen and Crampton Walker were also represented. See also lot 122 for another work originating from the Fine Art Society.

  • Dimensions: 14 by 23cm., 5.5 by 9in.
  • Pierre le Brocquy, in a letter to the present owner dated 31 March 2003, wrote of this work: “The work corresponds to the artist’s Dublin period painted two years after his return from Menton in the south of France, a town famous for its lemons. Louis marvelled at the orange and lemon trees in the streets of this sea-side Mediterranean village, which seemed to him to reflect Uccello’s paintings. However the work in question is a still life of apples, entitled Apples on a Table. I have herewith included a short statement by Louis which you might find of interest: ‘Ever since the early 1940s, I have been occasionally drawn to paint fruit, not only in the delicious sense of cornucopia, but as concentrated forms of a universal life in which, in a sense, we all share’ (Louis le Brocquy, March 2003)”.

  • Exhibited: 'Pauline Bewick: An Exhibition of Major New Works', Taylor Galleries, Dublin, 10-25 September 1995, catalogue no. 25
  • This large work is a result of the artist’s enduring concern with human evolution. It is one of a pivotal series of Bewick’s based on neo-Darwinian theory, which states that humans are descended from a common ancestor, a so-called “African Eve”. In his book, River Out of Eden, Richard Dawkins explains the African Eve theory and its premise upon both fossil and DNA evidence. African Eve was a member of the species Homo Sapiens whose descendants gradually dispersed from Africa to the rest of the world. A highly complicated (and contentious) evolutionary theory, it is neatly summed up by Dawkins: “we are all, if you go back two million years, Africans”.

  • President John F. Kennedy paid a three day official visit to Ireland in June 1963, during which he visited his great-grandfather’s birthplace in Dunganstown, near New Ross, Co. Wexford. The visit was a popular and diplomatic success, with Kennedy making the now famous farewell: “I will come back in the Spring”. Five months later on November 22nd he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Hennessy appears to have based the present work upon a press photograph, with the arms of an adoring crowd reaching upwards from the base of the composition. It is possible that he painted more than one work in connection with Kennedy’s visit as a second work, titled The Farewell Roses, was exhibited at the RHA in 1964. Farewell to Ireland was more than likely sold through the Guildhall Galleries in Chicago and hence later found in a private collection in nearby Iowa. The Guildhall represented Hennessy from circa 1966 onwards, showing his paintings on a regular basis and producing a promotional pamphlet about the artist and his work.

  • Bears original exhibition labels from the Martha Jackson Gallery, the David Anderson Gallery and the Solomon Gallery, on reverse. Another version of the same composition was included in the William Scott exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Edinburgh, June 1971, catalogue no. 8) and in the Tate Gallery retrospective of Scott’s paintings, drawings and gouaches (April - May 1972, catalogue no. 57b). Both works were part of a series done in the summer of 1956, when Scott had resigned his teaching post at Bath Academy in order to paint full time (it is thought that this example was post-dated, Scott mistakenly inscribing the year 1954 rather than ‘56). The entire series was executed at “a moment of stock taking, when Scott’s tentative resolution to return to still life and figure painting crystallized in a group of drawings as strong as any in his career” (Tate Gallery catalogue, 1972, unpaginated).
