DAVY BYRNE'S FROM THE BAILEY, circa 1941
Harry Kernoff RHA (1900-1974)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 21 February 2006 / 106

Published Estimate: €30,000-40,000

Price Realised: €28000

  • Signature: signed lower left; inscribed "Davy Byrne's £300" in a later hand on reverse
  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 51 by 38cm., 20 by 15in.
  • Provenance: The artist's estate; Purchased from Lena Kernoff by the father of the present owner, circa 1975; Thence by descent
  • Exhibited: RHA, Dublin, 1975, catalogue no. 1 (£350), a special Kernoff Memorial section of the annual exhibition
  • Literature: Kenneth McConkey, A Free Spirit Irish Art 1860-1960, Antique Collector's Club in association with Pym's Gallery, Dublin, 1990, pages 172-173
  • This is an oil sketch for the well-known larger composition which sold in recent years (Sotheby’s, London, 18 May 2000, lot 173). Painted in 1941, the larger work is believed to have been exhibited at the RHA the following year under the title, Reflections in a Dublin Restaurant (catalogue no. 19, £75-0-0), and to have later toured North America and Canada as part of the exhibition, ‘Contemporary Irish Art’, 1950 (catalogue no. 49). In 1976 it was included in the Kernoff retrospective held at the Hugh Lane Gallery (catalogue no. 48, on loan from a private collection). Two watercolours of the same subject were also painted in 1941, one of which is illustrated in Kenneth McConkey’s, A Free Spirit (op. cit., page 173); the second appeared recently at auction (Sotheby’s, London, 16 May 2002, lot 191). The present example remained in Kernoff’s possession for the duration of his life and was not exhibited until four months after his death, when it appeared as part of a special memorial section to the artist at the 1975 annual RHA exhibition. In all four works the façade of Davy Byrne’s public house is viewed through the front window of the Bailey, a restaurant and bar on Duke Street, Dublin. Kernoff was a habitué of both establishments and painted several interiors of Davy Byrne’s, including the well-known triple portrait of himself in the back snug with the proprietor and Martin Murphy, set-maker for the Gate Theatre. In the Bailey restaurant series, Kernoff likewise includes a portrait of himself: the figure in the trilby hat and glasses, reflected in the bar mirror. In the present example Kernoff is partially hidden behind the newspaper he is reading. Both the larger oil and the two watercolours differ from the present work in a few other minor details: a second play-bill hangs from a hook to the left of the window (advertising the Gate Theatre’s production of Romeo and Juliet in two works, and an Abbey production of The Plough and the Stars in another), an extra figure is reflected in the bar mirror to the furthermost right of the composition, the potted plant in the first-floor window of Davy Byrne’s has moved, the woman passing outside has donned a different hat and walks in the opposite direction. In essence however, the four compositions remain the same, each painting a detailed and lively picture of Dublin’s literary pub life.

Price Realised: €21000

  • Signature: signed lower centre; inscribed and dated [1940] on reverse in a later hand
  • Medium: watercolour over pencil
  • Dimensions: 23 by 34cm., 9.25 by 13.25in.
  • Exhibited: 'New Work by Harry Kernoff RHA', Academy Small Gallery, Ely Place, Dublin, 12-24 November 1951, catalogue no. 22; 'Harry Kernoff: A Selection of His Dublin Paintings', Godolphin Gallery, Dublin, May 1974, illustrated in catalogue and captioned Street
  • The firm of P. & H. Egan, brewers, malsters, wine and spirit bonders and general merchants, was established in 1852. They were one of the largest companies in the Irish midlands, employing between 200-250 workers at any given time, and with premises on Bridge Street (seen here), Church Street and the Market Square in Tullamore. As well as running a general provisions store and ironmongery, they brewed and bottled their own porter, and distributed ale and malt whiskey. When Kernoff first exhibited this work it appeared under the title P. & H. Egan Ltd. before 1910, Tullamore. The title is slightly unusual in that Kernoff did not habitually work from photographs and can not be expected to have any firm memory of the town as it appeared in 1910. However, given that Kernoff did not exhibit the work until 1951, it seems plausible that the title ought to have read “before 1940” (the year in which it was painted) rather than “before 1910”.

Framed circa 1960s by the Ritchie Hendriks Gallery. (5)

Price Realised: €9500

  • Signature: signed lower left

  • Exhibited: Possibly at the RHA, Dublin, 1919, catalogue no. 4, as Portrait of MAster Noel Thompspn
  • Ranked by the Studio magazine as “one of the most brilliant” of Orpen’s protégés, Margaret Clarke was a leading portrait artist of the Edwardian era, becoming in 1927 one of the first women to be granted full membership of the RHA. Born Margaret Crilley, in Newry, Co. Down, she first studied art at the local technical school, where she won a scholarship. In 1905 she came to Dublin to further her studies at the Metropolitan School of Art, there coming under Orpen’s tutelage. She worked as both studio assistant and model for Orpen. At the Metropolitan School she was awarded many prizes including a teacher training scholarship. In 1914 she visited the Aran Islands with her future husband, the stained glass artist and illustrator Harry Clarke. After her husband’s death in 1931 she took on the work of running his stained glass studio, concurrent with maintaining her own painting career. Their son David, also an artist, later joined the business. In 1932 the Haverty Trust commissioned her to paint St Patrick for the Mansion House, Dublin. Other commissions included portraits of Eamon de Valera, Lennox Robinson and Archbishop McQuaid. She held a solo exhibition at the Dublin Painters Gallery in 1939, and four years later helped establish the first Irish Living Art Exhibition. Her work is represented in all major public collections in Ireland. The present work is believed to be a portrait of Master Noel Thompson, exhibited at the RHA in 1919 (catalogue no. 4). In treatment it is wholly redolent of Orpen, from the carefully observed play of light across the child’s ruffled shirt, to the chinoiserie patterned silk shawl used as a backdrop – an item so elegant as to have possibly come from Orpen’s box of studio props.

  • Dimensions: 46 by 30cm., 18 by 12in.
  • Exhibited: Harbour Museum, Derry, May - October 2005, on loan from the present owner
  • Accompanying this lot is a letter from Dr S. B. Kennedy, Belfast, April 2005, concerning O’Rorke Dickey’s probable authorship of the painting, and dating it to the early 1920s. Dickey is known to have often painted views of towns from an elevated position, such as that afforded by the old city walls of Derry in this work. In the foreground is Walker’s Pillar, an eighty foot high Doric column erected in 1826 as a memorial to George Walker (1618-1690), Irish Anglican clergyman and commander. Walker served as joint governor of Londonderry (now Derry) during the 1689 siege by the army of the deposed James II. Under Walker's leadership, the townsfolk held the city for 105 days until help arrived. Walker received the thanks of Parliament and was designated Bishop of Derry. The pillar was destroyed by a bomb blast in the early 1970s.

TWILIGHT HOUSES, circa 1916-18
Paul Henry RHA (1876-1958)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 21 February 2006 / 133

Price Realised: 

  • Signature: signed lower right
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 25 by 30cm., 10 by 12in.
  • Provenance: Weddall, Achill Island; Acquired by the present owner, earkly 1980s
  • Inscribed on the reverse: “Lent to D. Figgis by E. M. Weddall 15 . (?) 4 . 1918”. A scene on Achill Island, the setting is almost certainly the old village of Dugort. The original owner of this work, Mrs Emily M. Weddall, was the widow of a sea captain and a friend of the artist. Of her, Henry commented: “She introduced me to the people and initiated me into many of the ways peculiar to the island.…She was [he continued] enthusiastic about my work and my desire to live in Achill and paint, and between us I think we were largely responsible for putting Achill ‘on the map’, as it is called” (Henry, An Irish Portrait, 1951, p. 53). D. Figgis, to whom Mrs Weddall lent the picture, was Darrell Figgis, a politician and man of letters, who lived on Achill for several years. He was deeply involved in the Irish nationalist movement in the years before and after the Easter Rising of 1916. Despite the title, the source of which is unrecorded, Twilight Houses was probably painted in the early morning, for Henry often worked around dawn, when all was still and the light cool and soft. This practice influenced his choice of muted colours and restricted his range of tones, characteristics which are clearly evident here. It was a development which had its beginnings around 1916-17, a time when the artist was turning his attention away from the life of the islanders of Achill towards the landscape itself. It also shows the influence of Whistler which re-surfaced in his work at the time. Twilight Houses is numbered 1072 in S. B. Kennedy’s forthcoming catalogue raisonné of Paul Henry’s oeuvre. Dr S. B. Kennedy, Belfast, January 2005
