  • Exhibited: RHA, 1895, catalogue no.19
  • Richard Thomas Moynan was born at Eldon Terrace, South Circular Road, Dublin in 1856. Having initially chosen to study at the Royal College of Surgeons, he later abandoned the medical profession to pursue painting as a career. He enrolled at the Royal Dublin Society’s School of Art and progressed to the Academy Painting Schools, winning several prizes and medals for drawing and painting at both schools. His first exhibit at the RHA appeared in 1880. Three years later he entered the Académie Royal des Beaux-Arts in Antwerp with fellow artist Roderic O’Conor, studying under the Belgian artist Charles Verlat (1824-1890). His contemporaries Walter Osborne, Joseph Malachy Kavanagh and Dermod O’Brien were also studying in Antwerp at this time. After just six months study he won first place for figure painting, out of over 100 students of various nationalities (O’Conor placed second). He continued his studies in Paris where he had similar success in painting and drawing competitions. He returned to Dublin in 1886 and five years later exhibited his highest priced work at the time, Military Manoeuvres, now one of the best known works in the National Gallery of Ireland. Moynan was a leading and popular exhibitor at the RHA and had every prospect of a long and successful career. However, his output was limited due to ill health and in April 1906 he died at the age of 50.

  • Signature: name of sitter inscribed on reverse
  • Medium: watercolour on ivory, in an oval rose-gold setting
  • Dimensions: 4 by 3cm., 1.75 by 1.25in.
  • As with many of Gustavus Hamilton’s portrait miniatures, this work would originally have been sewn onto a piece of velvet or ribbon and worn as a woman’s bracelet. The sitter is identified on reverse as a member of the Lane Allman family who during the nineteenth century operated a distillery in Bandon, Co. Cork. Gustavus Hamilton was the younger son of a vicar from Co. Tyrone. He studied in Dublin under Robert West and was soon apprenticed to Samuel Dixon, in whose studio he learnt to colour the basso-relievo prints of birds and flowers in which Dixon specialised. Upon establishing his own studio on Dame Street he became highly successful, painting miniatures for “ladies of the first rank” and making “a power of his money by his pencil” (John O’Keefe, Recollections, quoted in Strickland, Vol. I, pp. 426-7). We are grateful to Dr Paul Caffrey for identifying the artist of this lot.

  • Horace Hone had been brought to Dublin by Lady Temple when her husband was viceroy of Ireland. She was Baroness Nugent of Carlanstown in her own right in the peerage of Ireland and through her social connections, with the backing of the vice-regal court, she ensured that Hone received ample patronage painting portraits of the leaders of Irish society. Hone painted portraits of Emily, Duchess of Leinster (mother of the 2nd Duke) and Lord Edward FitzGerald (both in private collections, Dublin). In this miniature portrait of the second Duke of Leinster he is shown wearing the sky-blue ribbon and star of the Order of Saint Patrick. The Duke was a founder knight of the order when he was invested in 1783. He had already succeeded his father to the premier dukedom of Ireland in 1773. In 1775 he married Emilia Olivia Usher St George. She was only child and heiress of St George Usher, who had been enobled as Lord St George of Hatley St George, Co. Leitrim, in the peerage of Ireland. She bore the Duke eight children. The Duke of Leinster played a significant part in Irish politics and the Volunteer movement. In 1778 he took command of the Irish Volunteers in Leinster. With Thomas Conolly of Castletown he successfully carried a motion of thanks to the Volunteers to accompany the traditional vote of thanks to the viceroy in parliament. In 1779 he led the Volunteer Corps in College Green which was famously painted by Francis Wheatley (NGI). Portraits of the second Duke were painted and engraved by Joshua Reynolds, Gilbert Stuart and Martin Archer Shee (NGI). Dr Paul Caffrey, Dublin, March 2007

  • After the completion of his renowned cycle of paintings for the great room of the Society of Arts, London, Barry sought to make a number of changes to the sixth and final scene, Elysium and Tartarus, or the State of Final Retribution. He did so by means of three engravings, each depicting a detail of Elysium. The present work is from the central part of that composition and depicts the glorious sextumvirate described in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, seated left to right: Epaminondas, Socrates, Lucius Junius Brutus, Cato the Younger, Sir Thomas Moore, and Junius Brutus. This is the third and final state of the print, a copy of which Barry presented to the RSA in June 1800.

  • Sir Frederick William Burton was born 8 April 1816 at Clifden House, Corofin, Co. Clare. His father, Samuel Burton (b.1786) was an amateur artist who encouraged his son to paint, enrolling him at the age of ten with the Brocas brothers in Dublin. The younger Burton showed a precocious talent and was elected an associate of the RHA by the age of twenty-two; full membership followed in 1839. He led a distinguished career, culminating in the Directorship of the National Gallery in London. The present work is included in a Victorian album of watercolours, drawings and verse, compiled in 1831 (with some later additions) by Mary Burton, daughter of William Burton of 14 Colebrook Row, London. Whilst the precise relationship to F. W. Burton is unclear, there are indicated, throughout the album, links to the Burtons of Clifden House and to the O’Brien family in nearby Dromoland. Included in the album are works by other members of the Burton family: Caroline, Charles Frederick, Maria, Jane Anne, John, and “E. W. Burton Snr Esq of Clifden”, who was F. W. Burton’s eldest brother, Edward William Burton of Clifden House. Also included are sketches and verse by various members of the O’Brien family of Dromoland Castle, whence the album originated, as well the Montague, Ramsay and Ritchie families, and from a cousin of Mary Burton’s, Edward W. Fitzgerald. Subjects of the drawings include animal and flower studies, historical scenes, and a pencil drawing inscribed “The Right Hon. Lady Eleanor Butler and Miss Ponsonby, The Ladies of Llangollen” and signed by “I. F. G. 1866”. Bound in a full green morocco, tooled in gilt.

  • Born in Co. Kerry, Jerome Connor emigrated from Ireland in 1888, settling with his family in America. He learned the skills of stone carving and bronze casting at a young age and worked for a time for a monument company in Springfield, Massachusetts. While in America he was responsible for a number of major public commissions including the Spanish American War Memorial at Springfield and a standing portrait of Robert Emmet for the Smithsonian Institute, a copy of which now stands in St Stephen’s Green, Dublin. In 1925 he returned to Ireland after receiving a commission to create the Lusitania peace memorial at Cobh, a project which occupied him for many years. In 1926 he completed a bronze bust of George Russell which he cast, chased and patinated himself making it the first bronze statue ever fully completed in Ireland. During this period he exhibited several times at the RHA and at RA in London. A memorial exhibition of his work was held at the 1943 IELA and in 1993 the National Gallery of Ireland had a commemorative exhibition.

  • Born in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, Helen Comerford studied art at NCAD, the Belfast College of Art and Design and the Akademie Voor Beeldendekunst in the Netherlands. Although originally interested in sculpture she now focuses mainly on painting. She employs an encaustic technique in her paintings, a method using hot wax and pigments which gives the surface of her work a heavy impasto texture. She has previously lectured in sculpture at the Dun Laoghaire College of Art and Design and in landscape architecture in UCD. Since 1979 she has exhibited with the Taylor Galleries and has had several solo shows both there and around the country. Her work is represented in numerous collections including the Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane, IMMA and the Arts Council of Ireland.
