  • Possibly a scene in Achill Sound, in which case the background mountain is Corraun. The composition has similarities to a number of other Henry works of this period. In particular, the setting may be the same as that in his Evening on Achill Sound picture of 1924-25 (sold Adam’s, Dublin, 26 May 2004), and Achill Sound, 1923 (sold de Vere’s, Dublin, 26 November 2002). It also bears a resemblance to the earlier Connemara Landscape of 1916-19 (sold Whyte’s, Dublin, 21 September 2004), although in the latter Henry has taken a less distant view of the scene. In all of these pictures the disposition of the cottages in the middle distance, and the hills behind with their reflections in the water, bear a close resemblance to one another. In A Village in Connemara the precision of the handling of the paint, with its subtle yet descriptive treatment of surface and form, the carefully defined cottages and the almost minimalist suggestion of course grass or scrub in the foreground point to 1922-29 as a probable date of execution. The absence of a human presence in the composition, save for the scattered habitation, the sense of stillness, the closely modulated tones and limited palette demonstrate the continuing influence of Whistler, his teacher, on Henry at this time. A Village in Connemara is provisionally numbered 0999 in S. B. Kennedy’s ongoing catalogue raisonné of Paul Henry’s oeuvre. Dr S. B. Kennedy, Belfast, October 2004

  • Paul Henry’s earliest landscape pictures, which are executed in charcoal, date from the time he worked as an illustrator on a number of newspapers and journals in London in the early years of the twentieth century. Even at that early stage of his career his landscapes are characterised by a simple compositional device which brought a sense of charm to his work. This device involved dividing the picture plane into two distinct areas, namely the sky and landscape itself, and almost invariably one area or the other was given dominance over the entire composition. Usually the upward thrust of a tree, a cottage, a turf stack or other element united these two areas. This device he utilised throughout his career. It allowed him to focus attention on specific elements of a scene, the sky or the landscape itself and was a means of determining and controlling the mood and atmosphere he wished to convey. Even in a late work, such as this Bogland Landscape, one can see the power and eloquence of his compositional approach. Here, the sky dominates the scene, the heavy clouds announcing what will soon become a downpour. Yet the light, which still manages to filter through the clouds, catches the pool of water in the foreground and thus draws our attention to the strip of sodden terrain with its gentle peaks of the turf stacks. The eye’s recession is halted by the band of low hills in the distance, another commonly used element of Henry’s technique. Thus, in this case the sky, which occupies two thirds of the picture plane, is the key to our reading of the scene and determines our response to it. The setting, which cannot be identified, is probably Connemara or County Kerry and the picture was almost certainly made from sketches done earlier. The loose brushwork and fluidity of the handling of the paint, which is well laden with linseed oil, suggest a date of execution around 1935-45. The original owner, Miss Lyn Joynt, was a major in the British Army and World Wide Commissioner for Guiding. Bogland Landscape is provisionally numbered 0994 in S. B. Kennedy’s ongoing catalogue raisonné of Paul Henry’s oeuvre. Dr S. B. Kennedy, Belfast, October 2004

  • Signature: inscribed in pencil on stretcher: 'Farmyard, Co. Antrim' and numbered '3'
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 38 by 51cm., 15 by 20in.
  • Literature: S. B. Kennedy, Frank McKelvey RHA RUA: A Painter in his Time, Irish Academic Press, 1993, pp.67, 70, 85, illustrated plate 29
  • In his monograph on McKelvey, Dr S. B. Kennedy wrote of this work: “Two compositions which probably date from about this time (the 1950s) are Roadway with a Farm (plate 28) and Farmyard, Co. Antrim (plate 29). In these the subject-matter is unchanged from earlier decades, but the scale of colours is brighter than before and the brushwork is more delicate with at times a feathery quality to it. … These compositions of the 1950s, too, represent a way of life on the eve of change, when farming began to assume its contemporary ‘industrial’ character. The farm buildings depicted are traditional in style and construction, the chickens run freely about the farmyard, all exist in perpetual summer. It is the recording of such scenes that, apart from the aesthetic qualities of his art, makes the work of Frank McKelvey so appealing to us nowadays” (op. cit., p. 70).

  • Literature: Jonathan Benington, Roderic O'Conor: A Biography, with a Catalogue of his Work, Irish Academic Press, Dublin, 1992, catalogue no. 42, listed page 194
  • By 1894, O’Conor had been based in the Breton town of Pont-Aven for three years. For most of that time he had been painting in a style that owed little to the flattened forms favoured by Gauguin and the Pont-Aven School, choosing instead to adopt the alternating ‘stripes’ of brilliantly coloured pigment seen in the late work of Van Gogh. Thus from 1892 to 1894 O’Conor was the odd man out in Pont-Aven, ploughing his own artistic furrow whilst Gauguin was absent on his first visit to Tahiti. The year 1894, however, would see a seismic shift in the Irishman’s personal life and artistic career, thanks to Gauguin’s long-awaited return to Brittany. The visit ushered in a burgeoning friendship and artistic exchange between the two men, with O’Conor lending Gauguin his studio, defending the older man in a fist fight with local sailors, supporting him with the purchase of several Tahitian canvases, and finally being invited to return with him to the South Seas. The Tree in the Field is a transitional work that still has one foot planted in the Van Gogh-inspired methodology of 1892-3, whilst the other foot is moving in a direction that points to a new sympathy for the recent work of Gauguin. It is to O’Conor’s credit that he manages to reconcile two diametrically opposed painting styles in this radiant landscape. In doing so he nails his colours boldly to the mast of the European avant garde, a whole decade before any other Irish or British painters would catch up with him. The subject of the present work possesses the reassuring everyday-ness that we associate with Van Gogh: a solitary fruit tree, standing in a field with hedges and hills rising in the background, and silhouetted against a turbulent blue sky. One is reminded immediately of the flowering peach tree Van Gogh painted shortly after his arrival in Arles in 1888. Closer scrutiny of O’Conor’s painting reveals vestiges of his trademark parallel ‘stripe’, for example in the bole of the tree and, more consistently, in the pinkish-mauve band of hills punctuated with blue-green diagonal streaks. O’Conor reserved the same treatment (in black-and-white) for the background of a related ink drawing, Trees in a Field (Bristol Art Gallery), although the drawing is much more stylised and two-dimensional than the painting. The predominant colours in The Tree in the Field are orange, purple, light green, dark green and blue. The brushwork in most parts of the picture – especially the field, the sky and the foliage of the tree – is broken and scumbled, allowing areas of unpainted canvas to show through. The combination of a new lightness of touch with a greater use of colours at the warm end of the spectrum can be directly attributed to contact with Gauguin. Some of the latter’s Tahitian landscapes exhibit a similar tendency to organise the painting in terms of richly varied zones of colour, with each zone defined by directional variations in the brushstrokes rather than by the use of outlines. Having used this method experimentally in The Tree in the Field, O’Conor developed it further in another landscape of 1894, La ferme de Lezaven, Pont-Aven (National Gallery of Ireland). Much of the latter picture must, however, have been painted in the studio, no doubt at Gauguin’s suggestion, whereas The Tree in the Field has the spontaneity of a work executed largely out-of-doors. The impact of Gauguin’s work on O’Conor would remain evident into the early years of the 20th century, yet it was during the brief season of 1894 that their artistic paths converged most closely – a fact recognised by the English art critic Clive Bell, who described the relationship as “The great event in O’Conor’s life.” The Tree in the Field has a distinguished provenance, for it was in the possession of the novelist H. E. Bates and his family for many years. It seems highly appropriate that the writer of The Darling Buds of May should have owned a painting that functions, on one level, as a potent symbol of nature’s bounty.
