  • Collins went through an Expressionist phase in the early 1960s, painting in thick impasto with great vigour and bravura. During this period he painted a small series of works depicting menhirs, the prehistoric standing stones found both in Brittany and Ireland. In his 1961 exhibition at the Hendriks Gallery he showed two such works: Landscape with Menhirs (catalogue no. 11, 250 gns, purchased by the Arts Council) and Menhirs on the Plain, Brittany (catalogue no. 15, 45 gns). A third work, Three Menhirs (oil on board, 17 by 25 inches), painted around the same time, was purchased by the Jury’s Hotel Group.

GRID COMPOSITION
GRID COMPOSITION
John Kingerlee (b.1936)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 20 September 2005 / 112

Published Estimate: €20,000-30,000

Price Realised: €60000

  • Signature: signed in monogram and and dated [2003] lower right
  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 32 by 43cm., 12.5 by 17in.
  • Kingerlee began making grids in December 1998 while on a visit to the hill of Tara in County Meath, seat of the high kings of Ireland. The presence underground of so much buried history and power must have impressed him, not least because it provided him with an archaeological equivalent for the accumulated strata of his oil paintings. By adapting this unusual technique to suit the format of a grid, Kingerlee made the evolution of the painting more apparent and allowed the passage of time itself to be an integral part of the picture. When one looks at a grid painting one is not experiencing a picture in the singular, but rather the evidence of as many as fifty or more, piled one on top of the other. The grids are made by shaping the pigment into rectangles which are set out in rows, standing proud against neutral backgrounds. The linear matrix, which is imposed at the beginning of the painting process, has its origins in the early Cubist work of Picasso and Braque. Kingerlee particularly likes Braque’s description of his close collaboration with Picasso as being “like two mountaineers roped together”. To create a grid the artist lays his colours on with brushes initially, working from strong bright tints through to more muted shades: “the canvases become more and more subtle as they progress. A lot of white has gone into them and the very bright colours become no more than delicate traces. I really like the subtlety of reduced colour”. In the later stages the method of application switches to a combination of palette knife work and stippling with a decorator’s brush held vertically above the painting, which is laid flat on a workbench: “I am trying to build up a plaque, a raised textured surface. As each coat is added each plaque is more enriched, more and more figurative – landscapes, animals, buildings; sometimes the obvious image isn’t there – sometimes abstract – never a pure accident. The minute it seems a pure accident it’s no longer that but has become a conscious choice”. In Grid Composition the thirty plaques are endowed with great textural, tonal and chromatic variation. The treatment of the pigment ranges from encrusted, dry and granular (where sand has been added for extra texture) through to creamy, viscous and smooth, where one layer has been allowed to blend with another of a different colour. The plaques with more definite outlines stand proud of the surface, whilst the paler, more subtle ones start to dissolve into each other and into the background. A near musical rhythm is set up across the picture, as we explore the look and feel of each miniature landscape or ‘window’ and the part it plays in the whole. By frustrating our expectations of shape-repetition, the artist slows down our ‘reading’ of the image, making us move visually through this terrain as if it were a real landscape of rocks, turf, sea and sky. The artist regards the grid cells as miniature pictures, teetering on the brink between nature and abstraction, but always with a sense of being placed in three-dimensional space. It is as if the myriad components of the windswept Beara Peninsula (Kingerlee’s home) were distilled into a series of epiphanies or essences, and then reassembled in pictorial form. In these remarkable grids of Kingerlee’s both the means and the end seem to be without parallel in contemporary painting. Jonathan Benington, Bath, August 2005

  • Exhibited: 'Alice Maher: Familiar', Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin, 11 January - 18 February 1995 and the Orchard Gallery, Derry, 25 February - 25 March 1995
  • Literature: Cecile Bourne, ‘Interview with Alice Maher’, pages 22-27 in Familiar, Douglas Hyde, Dublin, 1995, page 25 and illustrated page 20; Aidan Dunne, ‘Ambiguous Images of Familiarity’, The Tribune Magazine, 8 January 1995; Aidan Dunne, ‘Visual Art’, The Tribune Magazine, 24 March 1996, page 15, illustrated; Medb Ruane, ‘Too close to call’ (review of the Glen Dimplex Award nominees at IMMA), The Sunday Times, 31 March 1996, illustrated; Alice Maher, Necklace of Tongues, limited edition artist’s book, Coracle Publishing, Clonmel, 2001
  • Aidan Dunne described Maher’s ‘Familiar’ exhibition as consisting of a “series of tall, large paintings ... each accompanied by its ‘familiar’, a sculptural object, anything from a couple of inches to a couple of yards in size”. He went on to describe the houses depicted in The City as “simplified representations of all the buildings - and in one case, a tent - that she [Maher] has lived in. They make up a freeform village of indeterminate scale. It could be made of building blocks, or it might be life sized. It’s accompanied by a bronze of a running girl, running, apparently, straight out of the wall”. Maher’s sketches for this work were later reproduced in a limited edition artist’s book, Necklace of Tongues, in which she labels each of the buildings represented with their location: Frankfurt, Dublin, Limerick, Cork, Belfast, Harlem and so on. Speaking about the work in an interview, Maher commented: “I wanted the viewer to feel either tiny and able to get inside and run around in that space, or to feel gigantic and able to pick up and change around the shapes at will. The fact that the pictures [The City and Familiar] are so tall and thin encourages this feeling of vertigo and invites the kind of engagement you refer to, like playing on video-game where you experience ‘getting into’ the space on a flat screen in front of you” (in interview with Cecile Bourne, 1994). Born in Tipperary, Alice Maher studied at the University of Limerick before attending the Crawford College of Art, Cork, where she studied Fine Art. In 1986 she obtained a Masters in Fine Art from the University of Ulster and later studied painting, at the San Francisco Art Institute. She has held numerous solo exhibitions throughout Ireland and abroad and is represented in most major public collections including the Hugh Lane Gallery, IMMA, OPW and the Arts Council of Ireland.

Along the coast can be seen three Martello towers (erected during the Napoleonic Wars). The small herd of cattle in the foreground has been transposed from earlier studies and appears in at least one other known work: Belfast from Newtownbreda Church (Ulster Museum, Belfast). It would appear this work was executed before 1854 when the Dublin-Kingsotwn railway was extended to Bray, and which features in later views of this area by this and other artists.

(c.1715-1785), of Colebrooke, was M.P. for Fermanagh; their maternal grandfather the Earl of Clermont. Lady Parnell was in turn great grandmother to the Irish parliamentary leader Charles Stewart Parnell (1846-1891). Both portraits are said to be copies after the pastels by Hugh Douglas Hamilton (1739-1808). Strickland records that by 1913 Hamilton’s portrait of Lady de Vesci was in the possession of Lord Talbot de Malahide.

  • Born in Co. Meath, Cregan was sponsored by the Stewarts of Killymoon, Co. Tyrone, to study at the Royal Dublin Society’s Drawing School, where he won medals in 1806 and 1807. Such was his aptitude he was sent to London to further his studies and there became the first and only pupil of Sir Martin Archer Shee PRA. In London he befriended Constable and Landseer among others, and began exhibiting at the RA. He returned to Dublin in 1822 and the following year became a founding member of the RHA. He was elected President of the RHA in 1832 and held the post for twenty-three years. During these years Cregan was the leading portrait painter in Ireland and by 1849 held the post of Portrait Painter to the Lord Lieutenant. Strickland described Cregan’s portraits as “marked by feeling and refinement, and a good sense of colour”. Cregan painted several members of the Hamilton family and their relations the Glanvilles. For a list of known works see Strickland, Vol. I, pages 224-233.

  • Provenance: Alain Chawner of the Stable Gallery, Ardee, whence purchased by the present owner circa 1970s (original receipt included with lot)
  • Friend of Wolfe Tone, General Louis Lazare Hoche (1768-1797) was the French commander charged with sailing a fleet to Ireland in 1796 to aid a nationalist rebellion. He never landed due to inclement weather and died of suspected poisoning before he could attempt another invasion. Keating’s title here is perhaps ironic, given that Hoche died before the landing at Killala, Co. Mayo, although the French naval vessel involved in the landing bore his name.
