THE CLADDAGH, GALWAY
THE CLADDAGH, GALWAY
Markey Robinson (1918-1999)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 28 November 2011 / 202

Published Estimate: €6000-8000

Price Realised: €6400

  • Signature: signed lower left
  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 47 by 122cm., 18.5 by 48in.
  • The Claddagh has a long tradition as an artistic subject having been the source of inspiration for scores of artists dating back to the late 1830s. Both Samuel Lover's Women of the Claddagh of Galway, 1839, and George Sharpe's View Of The West Convent, On The Claddagh, Galway, 1844, are examples of hugely significant historical works which depicted a vibrant fishing community of the West prior to the devastation of the Famine. In subsequent years Erskine Nicol, Walter Osborne and John Leech would all gravitate to the ancient village to capture the nostalgic essence of a disappearing Ireland.

  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 51 by 30cm., 20 by 12in.
  • Newspaper cutting reads: "Fast becoming one of the most fashionable "new" artists to collect, Belfast-born Markey Robinson is to have one of his biggest breaks yet shortly when he holds an exhibition in the residence of the Irish Ambassador to America. The news was given to me by dapper Oliver Nulty, whose Oriel art galleries in Dublin have long supported Markey when others, who now want to climb on the band-wagon, didn't want to know. Oliver it was [sic] who persuaded Markey to stay in Dublin many years ago when, disillusioned with what he thought was his lack of progress, he was planning to emigrate. Oliver bought his collection of expressionist paintings from him and gave him the chance of developing his art there. After the exhibition in Washington in May he will show his paintings in the North East University, Boston and San Francisco".
