During this period her depictions of Roundstone were also shown at the RHA. It is possible that the present work was one of the exhibited pieces from this time.

    Lady Kate Dobbin was born in Bristol, the daughter of William Wise, a solicitor. In 1887 she married Alfred Graham Dobbin who was knighted in 1900 for his role as High Chief Sheriff of the City of Cork. Lady Dobbin studied at the Crawford Municipal School of Art between 1891 and 1895. She submitted her first picture to the RHA in 1894 and continued to show there until 1947 exhibiting a total of one hundred and five paintings.

First of my father, mother and siblings then, as a student at the Limerick School of Art, preparatory drawings from casts of classical heads and of their parts, lips, mouths and ears. Afterwards at the National College of Art we, as students, painted from live models; heads in the morning, the figure in the afternoon. This training was the basis for my practice as a figure painter and, more particularly so, in my work as a portraitist. Over the years my subjects have come by way of choice, chance and commission… I have drawn and painted portraits of all ages and of all vocations, or none, from children to octogenarians, from Presidents and Cardinals to friends…"
    This work was a private commission and hung on the walls of the Irish Club at Eaton Sq., London. We are grateful to the artist for his assistance with cataloguing this lot.

  • Exhibited: Grace Henry HRHA 1868-1953, Retrospective Exhibition', Jorgensen Fine Art, Dublin, 7-27 January 2010
  • Literature: Cruickshank, J.G., Grace Henry, The Person and Artist, published in association with Jorgensen Fine Art and Designroom, Dublin , 2010 (illustrated p.43); Cruickshank J.G., 'Grace Henry', Irish Arts Review, Vol 9, 1993, p.178 (illustrated)
  • Dr. James G. Cruickshank, formerly of the Queen's University of Belfast, is the author of books and articles on Irish geography and is a practising amateur artist. He is a native of Aberdeen, Scotland and has been a passionate collector and researcher of Grace Henry for many years. He was first introduced to her work in the 1970s through Una Whyte of the Magee Gallery, Belfast who established the connection between the two Aberdeen natives both of whom had spent their adult lives in Belfast. Dr Cruickshank's first painting by Grace Henry, a gift from Whyte, was Bringing in the Turf (lot 110) and thus the journey began. Dr Cruickshank has written several papers on the artist. He gave one of the lectures during the 'Paul and Grace Henry exhibition' at the Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane in 1991 and more recently, published Grace Henry - The Person and Artist in association with Jorgensen Fine Art, Dublin in 2010. This collection is testament to his devotion and support for an artist of unique talent and vision.

    Born in Peterhead, Aberdeen, as Emily Grace Mitchell, she studied art at the Blanc Garrins Academy, Brussels, and the Delecluse Academy, Paris. She was also a pupil for a while under André L'hote. In Paris she met the Irish painter Paul Henry whom she married in 1903. They settled in England and Grace began exhibiting in London at the RA, the Leicester Galleries, and the Fine Art Society. Along with her artist husband, she sent works to the RHA from 1910 onwards, and two years later they left England for Achill Island, where they spent seven productive years painting the local people and landscape. In 1922 she was represented at the Irish Exhibition in Paris with five works; later she was included in a similar loan exhibition in Brussels in 1930. Both she and Paul were founder members of the Dublin Painters group. They exhibited together at the Stephen's Green Gallery, Dublin, and the Magee Gallery, Belfast. However, the pair were formally separated in 1934. Grace took to travelling and painting in France. Her work was boldly conceived in vibrant colours and decisive brushwork; "her painting", commented the Studio in 1939, was "all poetry". She continued to exhibit both in London and Dublin, notably with the Waddington Galleries and at the RHA. Although never made an Associate, she was elected an Honorary RHA in 1949.

    Dr. James G. Cruickshank, formerly of the Queen's University of Belfast, is the author of books and articles on Irish geography and is a practising amateur artist. He is a native of Aberdeen, Scotland and has been a passionate collector and researcher of Grace Henry for many years. He was first introduced to her work in the 1970s through Una Whyte of the Magee Gallery, Belfast who established the connection between the two Aberdeen natives both of whom had spent their adult lives in Belfast. Dr Cruickshank's first painting by Grace Henry, a gift from Whyte, was Bringing in the Turf (lot 110) and thus the journey began. Dr Cruickshank has written several papers on the artist. He gave one of the lectures during the 'Paul and Grace Henry exhibition' at the Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane in 1991 and more recently, published Grace Henry - The Person and Artist in association with Jorgensen Fine Art, Dublin in 2010. This collection is testament to his devotion and support for an artist of unique talent and vision.

    Born in Peterhead, Aberdeen, as Emily Grace Mitchell, she studied art at the Blanc Garrins Academy, Brussels, and the Delecluse Academy, Paris. She was also a pupil for a while under André L'hote. In Paris she met the Irish painter Paul Henry whom she married in 1903. They settled in England and Grace began exhibiting in London at the RA, the Leicester Galleries, and the Fine Art Society. Along with her artist husband, she sent works to the RHA from 1910 onwards, and two years later they left England for Achill Island, where they spent seven productive years painting the local people and landscape. In 1922 she was represented at the Irish Exhibition in Paris with five works; later she was included in a similar loan exhibition in Brussels in 1930. Both she and Paul were founder members of the Dublin Painters group. They exhibited together at the Stephen's Green Gallery, Dublin, and the Magee Gallery, Belfast. However, the pair were formally separated in 1934. Grace took to travelling and painting in France. Her work was boldly conceived in vibrant colours and decisive brushwork; "her painting", commented the Studio in 1939, was "all poetry". She continued to exhibit both in London and Dublin, notably with the Waddington Galleries and at the RHA. Although never made an Associate, she was elected an Honorary RHA in 1949.

    Dr. James G. Cruickshank, formerly of the Queen's University of Belfast, is the author of books and articles on Irish geography and is a practising amateur artist. He is a native of Aberdeen, Scotland and has been a passionate collector and researcher of Grace Henry for many years. He was first introduced to her work in the 1970s through Una Whyte of the Magee Gallery, Belfast who established the connection between the two Aberdeen natives both of whom had spent their adult lives in Belfast. Dr Cruickshank's first painting by Grace Henry, a gift from Whyte, was Bringing in the Turf (lot 110) and thus the journey began. Dr Cruickshank has written several papers on the artist. He gave one of the lectures during the 'Paul and Grace Henry exhibition' at the Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane in 1991 and more recently, published Grace Henry - The Person and Artist in association with Jorgensen Fine Art, Dublin in 2010. This collection is testament to his devotion and support for an artist of unique talent and vision.

    Born in Peterhead, Aberdeen, as Emily Grace Mitchell, she studied art at the Blanc Garrins Academy, Brussels, and the Delecluse Academy, Paris. She was also a pupil for a while under André L'hote. In Paris she met the Irish painter Paul Henry whom she married in 1903. They settled in England and Grace began exhibiting in London at the RA, the Leicester Galleries, and the Fine Art Society. Along with her artist husband, she sent works to the RHA from 1910 onwards, and two years later they left England for Achill Island, where they spent seven productive years painting the local people and landscape. In 1922 she was represented at the Irish Exhibition in Paris with five works; later she was included in a similar loan exhibition in Brussels in 1930. Both she and Paul were founder members of the Dublin Painters group. They exhibited together at the Stephen's Green Gallery, Dublin, and the Magee Gallery, Belfast. However, the pair were formally separated in 1934. Grace took to travelling and painting in France. Her work was boldly conceived in vibrant colours and decisive brushwork; "her painting", commented the Studio in 1939, was "all poetry". She continued to exhibit both in London and Dublin, notably with the Waddington Galleries and at the RHA. Although never made an Associate, she was elected an Honorary RHA in 1949.

  • Helen Waddell (1889-1965) was a close friend of the artist and a celebrated scholar and writer. She was educated at Queen's, Belfast, Oxford and Paris, and for a number of years worked for the publishing house of Constable. Waddell was born in Tokyo where her father was a Presbyterian missionary and travelled widely throughout her life. Two depictions of Waddell were shown at a joint exhibition of Paul and Grace Henry's work at the Hugh Lane, Dublin 26 November 1991 (catalogue nos. 17 & 18). Both works were from the collection of a Mollie Martin and had been previously exhibited at the Calmann Gallery, London in 1939 and 'Portraits of Great Men and Women', Ulster Museum, 1965.

She continued to exhibit both in London and Dublin, notably with the Waddington Galleries and at the RHA. Although never made an Associate, she was elected an Honorary RHA in 1949.

  • Provenance: Adam's, 28 May 2003, lot 120; Private collection
  • Hell Fire Club on Montpelier Hill was built as a hunting lodge c.1725 by William Conolly and is located in the Dublin Mountains. It is positioned on the site of a prehistoric passage grave, the stones from which were used in the construction of the lodge. What was interpreted as a misappropriation of the earlier landmark led to much superstition and alleged otherworldly activities at the site. This association was later reinforced when members of the Irish Hell Fire Club, active 1735 to 1741, began using the lodge as a meeting place. Although the Club later relocated following a fire, their association with the place remained. The Hell Fire Club and its surrounding lands, including Killakee Estate are now State owned. This watercolour was painted in 1931. An example of the same name (no. 20) and other views of the vicinity were exhibited by Kernoff at The White Gallery, 2 New Burlington Street, London, 28 April - 12 May, 1938.

He was on the first executive committee for the IELA in 1943 and during his involvement his own works were described as 'ultra-revolutionary' for their time.
    Cusack was a first cousin of Mainie Jellett. Largely self-taught, he lived on the continent from the mid 1930s and exhibited in the Salon de Monaco in 1937. He returned to Dublin on the outbreak of the war and had his first solo show in the Dublin Painters' Gallery in 1940. He later showed with the WCSI and designed stage sets for the Olympia Theatre alongside Anne Yeats and Thurloe Conolly. In the 1950s Cusack lived with his wife Nancy in Roundwood, Wicklow where he managed a nursery for rare bulbs. He later relocated to France again in the mid 1950s and exhibited in a group show entitled 'Artistes Étrangers en France' in the Petit Palais, Paris, 1955. The artist wrote his autobiography between 1955 and 1957 and died in the summer of 1965.

  • Hand woven by Benito Hernandez y Hermanos, Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico.
    Patrick Scott’s tapestry designs are a highly significant part of his oeuvre. The designs vary according to the tapestry technique employed, taking into account attributes such as the depth of pile and method of tufting. Thus, as Dorothy Walker once noted, ‘his tapestry is no mere transference of his paintings to a woollen surface’ (Irish Arts Review, 1984, pp. 18-9). Scott has also embraced a rainbow-coloured palette of colours for his tapestry designs. He has worked with the famed Aubusson firm of Tabard Frères et Soeurs, in addition to the Irish firm V’Soske Joyce in Galway and individual weaver designers such as Alice Roden and Leonora Fowler. In 1980 he was introduced to a family of weavers in Mexico, resulting in a series of rugs, wall hangings and tapestries being produced over the following four years. Peter Lamb has described this series as follows: The Oaxacan weavers of Mexico operate a cottage industry version of Aubusson. They also produce a fine product, but one which is much looser and more rustic in character. Unlike both V’Soske Joyce and Tabard Frères et Soeurs, which both use chemical dyes, the Oaxacans use mostly animal and vegetable dyes, particularly indigo and cochineal, which are locally produced. Scott worked with Benito Hernandez, a Zapotec Mexican, and his extended family in the weaving village of Teotitlán del Valle from 1981 to 1984 and some of the work was subsequently exhibited in the Museo del Arte Contemporaneo in the city of Oaxaca.

  • "Tea Cakes and Dolly Mixtures were part of a series commenting on mass culture and popular taste, using very sweet subject matter. Other subject from 1971 included gob stoppers, liquorice comfits, iced caramels, chocolate beans and liquorice allsorts, all painted as literal examples of monumental contemporary kitsch against patterned backgrounds. Although these works may now appear to have a 'retro style', at the time they were quite shocking in their vulgarity, using as they did materials not yet appreciated for their kitsch qualities. The quite hallucinatory intensity with which Ballagh has portrayed his sweet subject is both amusing and disquieting."
    From Robert Ballagh Works from the Studio 1959-2006, p.39
