  • Jordan, a graduate of the Dún Laoghaire School of Art in the late 1970s, has evolved stylistically from her early composed abstracts to darker figurative works to large classical landscapes. Deeply influenced by a scholarship in Berlin during the 1980's she soon became recognised as one of Ireland's renowned feminist Neo-Expressionists. In the early 1990s Jordan moved to France and since then has worked predominantly on landscape and domestic interiors. A founder member of the Visual Arts Centre, Jordan served on the committee of the Association of Artists in Ireland, Independent Artists and lectured at the National College of Art and Design from 1979-1983. She was made a member of Aosdána in 1990.
    In 1980 Eithne Jordan was awarded the Independent Artist’s Large Scale Painting Award.
    We are grateful to the Rubicon Gallery, Dublin for their assistance in cataloguing this lot.

  • Provenance: Provenance:Taylor Galleries, Dublin; Private collection
  • Exhibited: Exhibited:'Camille Souter', Douglas Hyde Gallery, Trinity College, Dublin, 8 June - 9 July, 1980, catalogue no. 12.
  • Literature: Literature:Cormican, Garrett, Camille Souter, The Mirror in the Sea, Whyte's, Dublin 2006, catalogue no. 132, p.81 (full colour illustration)
  • In The Mirror in the Sea Cormican discusses the successes of this early work which depicts a circus act. He notes in particular the work’s warm palette and the general ‘upbeat’ mood which contrasts with the artist’s later interpretations on the same theme. Cormican describes the scene as thus, “As one looks more closely, one realises there are three clowns fooling around on bicycles. They appear to be carrying something, perhaps to assist their balance or, alternatively, to balance the large wheel on the left. The artist once recalled in conversation that the clowns would often get up on enormous mono-cycles and pretend to fall off for the amusement of the audience. Again such performances have a dual aspect. The clowns feign injury or pain, to inspire laughter. It requires enormous skill to perform such acts without suffering an actual injury.” The circus would persist as a source of inspiration for Souter during this period with her style in the later years of the decade becoming more noticeably representational.

Price Realised: €0

  • Medium: watercolour
  • Dimensions: 64 by 48cm., 25.2 5 by 18.7 5in.
  • Provenance: Provenance:Kerlin Gallery, Dublin; Where purchased by thwe present owner
  • Exhibited: Exhibited:'Louis le Brocquy, Paintings 1940-1990', Kerlin Gallery [Hibernian Fine Art], Dublin, January 1991
  • This watercolour of Joyce pertains to the artist's series of Portrait Heads executed c.1975-2005. According to Anne Crookshank in her text for the Kerlin exhibition catalogue, "...Le Brocquy has always been a great practitioner of watercolour and the thin washes of his early oils have much in common with this method... The irregular dabs of brilliant colour, purple, blue, and green, as non-descriptive as the tesserae of a Byzantine mosaic, build up the form of his heads with a tense, nervous immediacy which oil with its overlapping layers and opaque thickness never can achieve. The traces of paper left between each stroke, which enhance the brilliancy of the colours, and the gleam of whiteness, which glows through the paint, all help to create the truly magical effect of images coagulating in front of your eyes, coming alive, mediating, speaking, and ultimately returning to their own imaginative genius. He sometimes uses tissue paper to paint from, using it in such a way that the creases make caesuras in the strokes of paint. The results are deliberately induced accidents which help to keep the images at a distance from us, to give them reality only as paintings, not as descriptive portraits...The magic of the quietness of le Brocquy's oils is surpassed only by the excitement of his watercolours. They may be as still as the oils. But the sheer joy of their running, smudged, fragmented, clear colours brings vital reality to the spirit of his rediscovered genius. In this aspect of his work, le Brocquy has added a new dimension to his art. He has become a great colourist."

  • Medium: oil on panel incorporating transparent photographic component

  • In May 2009 the Irish Museum of Modern Art celebrated his work with, ‘Hughie O’Donoghue: Recent Paintings and Selected Works from the American Ireland Fund Donation’. This was a major exhibition of twenty-seven works by the artist who has now a substantial body of work in the Irish national collection. Since the mid 1980s O’Donoghue has been exhibiting widely in prominent solo and group shows; especially successfully with the Kerlin Gallery, Dublin, James Hyman Gallery, London among many others. He is now represented by the prestigious Marlborough Gallery, London who were Francis Bacon’s dealers among other masters of the 20th century.
    Artist’s Notes II, 2007
    Hughie O'Donoghue, Lost Histories, Imagined Realities, Gemeente Museum, Den Haag, Holland, 2008, p.79-81
    ”In recent years I have increasingly used photography as a component of the picture making process. The photographic element has a skin-like quality, which is physically integrated into the layered surface of the oil paint. In order to achieve the kind of density that I want, it is necessary to build the surface in a traditional way by superimposing layers of oil paint and exploiting the transparency and opacity of the medium. The photographic elements are trapped within these layers. I photographed the characters in some of the paintings in various scenarios on the land around the studio where I work in Ireland. One of the recurring themes of my work is memory and how it is constructed. I am interesting in both individual and memory and the larger cultural memory of societies. Memory is rarely accurate, but in my experience it is invariable true, in that it represents how we feel about things rather than what we know. In this way it is like the art of painting.”

GIRL IN YELLOW BERET
GIRL IN YELLOW BERET
Marian Jeffares (1916-1986)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 10 October 2011 / 139

Published Estimate: €800-1200

Price Realised: €950

  • Medium: oil on canvasboard
  • Dimensions: 61 by 51cm., 24 by 20in.
  • Provenance: Provenance:Family of the artist
  • Born Marian Bragg in South London, Jeffares was a relation of William Henry Bragg and Sir Lawrence Bragg (co-winners of the 1915 Nobel Prize for Physics for their work on x-rays). She studied at Blackheath Art School and for five years at the Slade. She also studied design at Chelsea Polytechnic, and in 1939 took a degree in art history at the Courtauld Institute, studying under Sir Anthony Blunt. Shortly prior to WWII she married Ernest Holfenth, with whom she had a child, but the marriage barely outlasted the war. During the intervening years she worked at the War Office in London and taught art in Manchester. Her second marriage was to George Jeffares, an Irishman who lectured in languages at the Royal Naval College in Devon. Together they travelled to China for eighteen months, and Chinese scenes and subjects would preoccupy her throughout the early 1950s. In 1949 they settled in Kimmage, Co. Dublin and Jeffares began showing work at the IELA. In 1956 she had the first of fifteen works hung at the RHA and the following year, from an address in Rathgar, began showing at the annual Oireachtas art exhibitions. She also continued to exhibit in London, sending work to the Leicester Galleries in August 1957. Solo exhibitions were held with the Hendriks Gallery, Dublin, in 1956 and 1960. During the 1960s and '70s her subject matter focused - rather unfashionably - on social issues such as unemployment, women's rights, and Republican prisoners. She died in 1986, survived by two sons.

  • In 1945 Gerard Dillon's sister Molly acquired a house at 102 Abbey Road, London, N.W.6 and Dillon converted the basement floor into a flat where he would live on and off from 1945 until the mid 60s. Shortly after the war Abbey Road became an artistic mecca in London with several of Dillon's artist friends socialising and living on and off there during this period. James White in his text Gerard Dillon: An Illustrated Biography, Wolfhound Press, 1994, p.50 and 63, elaborates on this period in Abbey Road, Dillon's quirky relationship with his sister and landlady and the eclectic circle of people including George Campbell, Noreen Rice, Arthur Armstrong among others who visited the address.

    The 1960s and 70s were defining years for Markey Robinson. Specific catalysts which effected a change in his practice at this time included the break-up of his marriage and the gradual departure of his wife and daughters to the United States. Paul O’Kelly (Markey at The Oriel, The Oriel Gallery, Dublin, 2008, p.18) notes, “This was to be a turning-point in his life, providing him with a melancholic leitmotif ¬– the retreating female form - for his paintings…” ‘The troubles’ in Northern Ireland at the beginning of the 1960s also shaped him in that he would now lose Belfast as his “centre of gravity” (ibid) by relocating to Dublin. The move however strengthened his relationship with The Oriel Gallery and sales of his work facilitated travel abroad.
