  • Born in Co. Clare, the eldest child of Charles Staunton Cahill JP, Richard S. Cahill entered the Royal Hibernian Academy’s school in 1850. The next year he began exhibiting at the RHA, showing a further two dozen works there in the following years, the last in 1900. Strickland records he moved to London in 1853, but records of the societies with which he exhibited, including the RA and the RBA, reveal a peripatetic existence, teaching for a period at Nottingham School of Art and changing studios frequently. The titles of his paintings also reveal visits home to his family in Clare and Galway, eg. Leaving a Country Chapel, West of Ireland (RHA 1881), A Galway Boy (RBA 1865), and On the Golf Links at Lahinch (RHA 1896). He died 7 July 1904.

  • Medium: oil on panel

  • In the early 1800s a modest school of painting arose in Dublin, which favoured small landscapes, usually well peopled and studded with anecdotal interest. Of this school, the Sadlers were best known, in particular, William Sadler II. Along with his son William Sadler III and a number of studio assistants, he produced many such miniature landscapes, which as Anne Crookshank and the Knight of Glin have noted would have suited sumptuous Regency drawing-rooms, with their dark-coloured wallpaper providing “an ideal background for a myriad of tiny and medium-sized gilt-framed pictures” (Painters of Ireland, 2nd edition, page 194).

He trained to be an art teacher and at the age of 20 became an assistant master at the Birmingham School of Art. After three years of further study and occasional teaching, he was appointed Head Master of the Cork School of Art - a position he held from 1860 to 1889. During his time there, he instituted lace-making classes throughout numerous convents in Co. Cork and was instrumental in arranging the Gibson Bequest, one of the most important acquisition funds for the Crawford Gallery. In 1889 he was made Head Master of the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art where one of his pupils was Sir William Orpen. Brenan lived the rest of his days in Rathmines, Dublin, exhibiting at the RHA up until his death.

  • Literature: Richard Pryke, Norman Garstin: Irishman and Artist, Spire Books, Reading, 2005, pages 123, 209 and full page colour plate reproduction of 'Saturday' page 112
  • Garstin first visited Brittany in the early 1880s and returned frequently to paint and lead artistic excursions with his pupils from Newlyn. The present pair of oil sketches is thought to date to 1911, when he is recorded as painting in the picturesque village of Josselin, and was almost certainly included in his exhibition the following year in London. Both works have unfinished sketches on reverse. The second work has recently been identified as depicting the basilica at Josselin, Notre Dame du Roncier, named after a local legend concerning a peasant who discovered a statue of the Virgin in his field and subsequently built a sanctuary on the spot - this became known as Our Lady of the Rose Bush. Garstin depicts a priest conducting a service, known as a pardon, on the steps of the church. Both works are in the original frames of H. W. Taylor and Co., Bayswater, London, and are consistent with those found on others of Garstin’s works, including those formerly in collection of Mr John Chambers (see Julian Campbell’s note printed in the Gorry Gallery catalogue, page 21).

In 1915 he enlisted with the army, losing a leg during the war. On returning home he enrolled in night classes at the Sheffield College of Arts and Crafts, working by day at the steelworks. After being made redundant in 1931, he turned to art full-time. Two years later he had his first work accepted at the RA; more than three dozen works appeared in successive years. Despite his physical handicap Allen painted in most areas of Derbyshire and visited the west of Ireland on numerous occasions. Scenes in Achill reoccur throughout his career, many of them sold through the Magee Gallery in Belfast. Others were exhibited at the RBA, the Manchester City Art Gallery and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
