THE RETURN FROM THE SEAL-HUNT, 1881
THE RETURN FROM THE SEAL-HUNT, 1881
William H. Bartlett RBA (1858-1932)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 28 November 2011 / 107

Published Estimate: €8000-12000

Price Realised: €14000

  • Signature: signed and dated lower right; with title and artist's name on gilt plaque affixed to frame lower centre
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 50 by 75cm., 19.5 by 29.5in.
  • Exhibited: Exhibited:Royal Academy, London, 1881, no. 375
  • Contained in what appears to be its original frame.
    Seal hunting was commonplace in 19th century Ireland and earlier. Their skins made excellent coats and waistcoats and they were also in demand for making floats for fishing net and for covering boats. The hunting was dangerous and difficult as Tomás Ó Criomhthainn recounted in his book, An tOileánach (The Islandman). The hunters on the Blasket Islands would often have to swim into caves in pursuit of their quarry. Bartlett himself recounts in graphic detail how the inhabitants of Connemara tracked the seals in parties by boat and on foot to uninhabited islands off the mainland for their prized oil which was said to be ‘grand for rheumatics’. For Bartlett’s full account see, Campbell Julian, Walter Osborne In the West of Ireland, A Centenary Publication, Adam’s, 2004, Appendix 1: Coast Life in Connemara by William H. Bartlett from ‘The Art Journal 1894’, pp.117-120.
    Bartlett studied at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris under Gérôme, Bouguereau and Fleury and was elected RBA in 1879, around which time he also first visited Irish soil recording scenes both in print and paint. Works exhibited in the early 1880s include Going to Market at Roundstone from Deer Island, West Coast of Ireland, An Evicted Tenant, Connemara and Waiting for the Turf Boats, Roundstone. Bartlett’s prominence stems from these innovative early views of daily life in the West as well as from his formation of “…an important link between the essentially Victorian, and often sentimental, work of other visiting artists such as Howard Helmick and the figurative work of Charles Lamb and Paul Henry in the early decades of the twentieth century.”(See footnote, no. 1)
    He returned to Ireland frequently showing three works at the RHA (in 1897 and 1905) and in 1911 was recorded with an address in Donegal. From 1880 onwards he exhibited more than forty works at the RA. His inaugural exhibition saw six works shown, however, in 1881 The Return from the Seal-Hunt was the only work exhibited by Bartlett from an address at Park Lodge, Church St., Chelsea. He exhibited a total of 28 works with the RA from 1880 to 1904. Other exhibiting venues included the Fine Art Society in London and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He is represented in the Brighton and Hove Museum and in the Ulster Museum, Belfast. In 2007 the National Gallery of Ireland (NGI) acquired His Last Work, 1885 from the Gorry Galley, Dublin.
    As is the case with the NGIs picture, this work is boldly signed and dated 1881, the year that it was exhibited by Bartlett at the Royal Academy. This is a clear sign he was pleased with the work, which, similarly to His Last Work, was the only painting he exhibited that year.

AN EARLY SKETCH OF JAMES BARRY'S A GRECIAN HARVEST-HOME [THE PROGRESS OF HUMAN CULTURE] c.1777-1784
After James Barry  RA (1741-1806)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 28 November 2011 / 111

Published Estimate: €1500-2000

Price Realised: €2300

  • Signature: bears inscription ["Barry's drawing of picture at Adelphi"] in pencil on the mount lower left
  • Medium: pen and ink with wash over pencil heightened with white
  • Dimensions: 36 by 47cm., 14 by 18.5in.
  • This precise, highly finished drawing is an early sketch of James Barry’s painting, A Grecian Harvest-Home, in the collection of Royal Society of Arts, London (RSA). The painting forms part of a series of six murals, The Progress of Human Knowledge and Culture, commissioned for the Society's Great Room in 1774. The RSA was founded in a coffee shop in Covent Garden in 1754 and was based in a number of locations in this area in its early years. In 1774 it moved to what remains its current home in John Adam Street. The House was designed for the Society by Robert Adam as part of the major Adelphi development undertaken by Adam and his brothers. The murals were exhibited in 1783 and 1784. The first exhibition was accompanied by a text explaining the murals’ content and included numerous prints on same. A Grecian Harvest-Home, the second in the series, (each 11ft 6ins. high; the longest two 42ft.) outlines the development of Greek society. In James Barry ‘The Great Historical Painter’, William Pressly describes it as showing, “a fecund, agrarian society, best understood in the conventions of the Georgian pastoral and its seductive imagery of rural retirement…underlying the festivities is the melancholy sense that this ‘state of happiness …is only a stage of societies progress’… The ominous break in the chain of dancers, and the central dancer’s pensive expression, foreshadow the more stressful period to come.” (1) Pressly notes that Barry was continuously preoccupied with the murals from their first showing until his death and that he retouched the canvases themselves as well as publishing prints on alternatives readings of same. (2) This drawing bears subtle differences with the finished mural in the RSA. Some differences evident in this example include; the omission of a scythe and fork (centre), different headdresses on the girls at the base of the ladder and in the loft and some detail visible in the distant landscape in the background. For further reading on James Barry see Strickland, Vol. I, pp.34-45 and James Barry 1741-1806 ‘The Great Historical Painter.1. Dunne, Tom (Ed.), James Barry 1741-1806 ‘The Great Historical Painter’, Crawford Art Gallery & Gandon Editions, 2005, p.482. Ibid., p.49-50

COLLECTION OF FIVE PORTRAIT MINIATURES, c.1800s
COLLECTION OF FIVE PORTRAIT MINIATURES, c.1800s
 Various 

Auction Date / Lot No.: 28 November 2011 / 119

Published Estimate: €1200-1800

Price Realised: €1150

  • Signature: variously signed and dated
  • Medium: oils, watercolours on card or enamel; framed individually (all oval); presented as one within a single frame
  • Dimensions: 6 by 5cm., 2.5 by 2in.
  • Features three-quarter portraits of three men and two women, all elegantly dressed. First (top) inscribed "T.i.f. Hau pinx. 1796". Possibly a depiction of a politician, it shows a gentleman with detailed grey-hair dressed in black with a white neck tie. After 1800, it was fashionable for men to ‘wear’ their own hair rather than wigs as is visible in this depiction. The second and third portraits are double-sided held within a red leather travelling case. The portrait of the man is attributed to Frederick Buck (Cork, 1771-1840), a sought after miniaturist in the city during the Napoleonic Wars, supplying the demand for keepsakes between officers and ladies. This gentleman can be identified as an Irish Major of the 81st Regiment (See NGI 7144 for a comparable work). The lady is elegantly dressed with low cut décolletage and elaborately styled hair. The fourth miniature, also possibly of a politician, is precisely painted and held in a gilt-metal frame (glazed) with brooch pin on reverse. The last portrait depicts a lady, similarly attired to the previous example; contained in a metal frame with pendant setting (glazed) this work is indistinctly signed [Mliy?] lower right. For further reading see: Caffrey, Paul, Treasures to Hold, Irish and English Miniatures 1650-1850 from the National Gallery of Ireland, NGI, 2000.
