A COLLECTION OF EIGHTY-SEVEN ORIGINAL DRAWINGS FOR THE HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS OF GLOUCESTERSHIRE
A COLLECTION OF EIGHTY-SEVEN ORIGINAL DRAWINGS FOR THE HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS OF GLOUCESTERSHIRE
Hugh Thomson RI (1860-1920)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 30 May 2011 / 57

Published Estimate: €10000-15000

Price Realised: €0

  • Signature: each work initialled; each with location/image identified; variously annotated with page instructions, dates and additional information
  • Medium: pencil on paper; (all unframed)
  • Literature: Literature:Hutton, Edward, Highways and Byways in Gloucestershire, MacMillian and Co. Ltd, London, 1932
  • The collection comprises eighty-seven original drawings in pencil which were used to illustrate Highways and Byways of Gloucestershire, published in 1932. The drawings were executed 1919 as indicated on the variously inscribed works. The dimensions of each vary between 11 by 8 and 8 by 5ins. approximately. Thomson was born in Kingsgate Street, Coleraine in 1860, to John, a draper, and Catherine. His mother died at a young age and his father remarried. Thomson studied at the Model School staying with his aunt Jayne Hunter who lived on the Castlerock Road, Coleraine and who nurtured his interests in the arts. From here Thomson went to work as an apprentice for HA Gribbon & Sons, who owned a large linen factory on the Strand Road, Coleraine and he later trained at the prestigious printing and publishing company, Marcus Ward & Sons, in Belfast. In 1876, the 16-year-old left Coleraine for Belfast with his brother Richard, to work in the design department of the company. Thomson worked alongside artist William Morris under award-winning designer John Vinycomb. In 1883, Thomson travelled to London with fellow Coleraine artist AD McCormick. He worked for Macmillan & Co and Hyndman publishers and produced illustrations for late 19 century and early 20 century editions of works by leading literary figures, including Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and a number of new Shakespeare editions. Following the First World War, commissions for illustrations started to wane and in 1920, following an illness, Thomson died in Wandsworth, London. His legacy is maintained through the various titles he illustrated, and, more recently, his illustrations for JM Barrie’s play Quality Street, which are still reproduced on boxes of chocolates of the same name. Thomson’s close connections with Coleraine and Kilrea have been dutifully maintained and celebrated. In 2007 the Coleraine Borough Council purchased a major collection of Hugh Thomson items comprising drawings, watercolours, early edition books and photographs for £150,000 to add to their collection. In 2010 The Coleraine Borough Council launched a major exhibition of the artist’s work, while the Coleraine Town Hall opened a Hugh Thomson Study Room within its walls.

  • Nude recalls immediately the French modernist tradition in art and to some extent the pose of Manet's provocative masterpiece Olympia (1863). Early in his career O'Neill had worked for a short time in the studio of Sidney Smith, who, together with Gerard Dillon, introduced him to French art, inter alia Rouault, Cézanne and Picasso. He also visited Paris for the first time c. 1948/49. O'Neill's reclining nude nonchalantly and with a tear in her eye is 'unwrapped' as it were to confront the viewer. Everything conspires towards an erotic, if somewhat sentimental charge - the sensuous drapes; the revealed nudity; the rich colours and impasto. John Hewitt, who regarded O'Neill highly, described him as “...a brooding painter”, he suggests rather than states his passionate strength in a severely limited range of colours'. O'Neill often relied on dark yellows, blues and greens to support a visionary quality in his work. The 1940s was something of a decas mirabilis for the artist culminating in 1952 in a very successful exhibition at the CEMA Gallery, Belfast and which Ken Jamison would claim had significant influence on a younger generation of artists - the influence more of 'attitude than of style'. During this productive period O'Neill painted a series of nude works such as Susanna and the Elders (1949); Artist's Model (c.1948/49) and The Blue Skirt (1949). Nude could well belong to this period. It has the more characteristic and sombre colour range of this earlier phase before his later brighter paintings which could verge on sweetness at times. All these paintings incorporate the female archetype in differing reclining and seated positions. Artist's Model shows the artist at his easel painting a reclining nude with curiously another women (muse?) looking on, while a seated nude is the subject of the male gaze in Susanna and the Elders. Although it more languid and less Picasso-like, Nude also recalls The Blue Skirt (Ulster Museum) which Ken Jamison would describe as 'A kind of Northern odalisque, this half-nude reclining figure seemed to belong to the great European tradition and yet something excitingly new'.

It is effort from the onlooker that Jellett sees as key to the understanding and appreciating of art. Also included in this lot is ‘Sir Hugh Lane's French Pictures, Notice of Meeting to Petition The Government for The Return of The Lane Pictures, 1918’, a rare circular letter from George Atkinson RHA, Honorary Secretary of the committee formed to appeal for the return of the Lane pictures, notifying of a public meeting to be held in Dublin on 29 January [1918].
