    Thought to be from the collection of Creagh Castle, Doneraile, Co. Cork; Where purchased c.1940s by the grandfather of the current owner [former proprietor of Creagh House, Doneraile]
  • The second work measures 14.5 by 17.25 inches and is framed uniformly with the Dunloe scene. Bosanquet was a photographer and watercolourist active in Cork in the mid nineteenth century. His works tend to be full of incident and anecdote and - whilst the product of a self-taught hand - were of sufficient merit to be hung from time to time at the Royal Hibernian Academy. His son, J. Claude Bosanquet, also painted landscapes. Creagh Castle, Doneraile was built in 1816 by G.W. Brasier-Creagh on the site of an earlier house, known as Castle Saffron, destroyed by fire in c.1750. The house was sold in 1977. (See: Bence-Jones, Mark, Burke's Guide to Country Houses Vol. 1, 1978, p.94 (illustrated)

MINIATURE PORTRAITS, SIR JOHN CHARLES INGHAM AND LADY WILHELMINA INGHAM
MINIATURE PORTRAITS, SIR JOHN CHARLES INGHAM AND LADY WILHELMINA INGHAM
Gustavus Hamilton (1739-1775)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 15 March 2010 / 106

Published Estimate: €800-1200

Price Realised: 

  • Signature: inscribed on reverse with sitters' names and address detail
  • Medium: watercolour
  • Dimensions: 9 by 6cm., 3.5 by 2.5in.
  • As with many of Gustavus Hamilton's portrait miniatures, these works may originally have been sewn onto a piece of velvet or ribbon and worn, in the woman's case, as a bracelet. The sitters are identified on reverse as Sir John Charles Ingham and Lady Wilhelmina Ingham. The inscription for Lady Ingham continues with an address, The Court, County Cavan, Ireland. Gustavus Hamilton was the younger son of a vicar from Co. Tyrone. Hamilton 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). The National Gallery of Ireland complimented their exhibition of Turner watercolours in January 2010 by displaying alongside them a collection of 17th, 18th and 19th century silhouettes and miniatures from the Mary A. McNeill Bequeath (1984). This collection, which includes work by Gustavus Hamilton, promotes a renewed interest in these delicate works and illustrates both their importance and desirability as a collector’s item.

  • Kilmurry House, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny dates back to 1690 when Colonel Bushe built a seat on lands granted to him under the Cromwellian settlement. In the late 1800s the estate was bought by Major Henry Butler of the Butler family, Kilkenny Castle, grandson of the 11th Viscount Mountgarret. Major Butler's daughter Mildred Anne was immensely inspired by the house and its grounds which formed the subject matter of much of her oeuvre. Upon her death in 1941 Mildred Anne Butler left Kilmurry House to her cousin. Thus the house remained in the Butler family until it was sold in 1981.
