GOLD DIPTYCH [FOLDING SCREEN], 1979-1980
GOLD DIPTYCH [FOLDING SCREEN], 1979-1980
Patrick Scott HRHA (b.1921)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 26 November 2012 / 98

Published Estimate: €5000-6000

Price Realised: €3275

  • Medium: acrylic and gold leaf on unprimed canvas
  • Dimensions: 50 by 50in., 127 by 127cm.
  • Provenance: The Collection of Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij
  • Three screens from this series were shown by the artist at ROSC in Dublin in 1980 and at his exhibition 'A Sense of Ireland' in London with Annely Juda Fine Art the previous year. Whyte's are pleased to offer a further selection from the collection of distinguished businessman and arts patron, Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij. Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij, who was born in Dublin in 1945, relocated to Thailand at the age of eighteen and is renowned in both the country of his birth and in South East Asia for his contribution to business, arts and charitable organisations in Thailand. O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij was a keen art collector and built up lasting friendships with Irish artists such as Patrick Scott. The meditative quality of Scott's oeuvre appears to have connected with him and his collection of early Scott canvases offered in this sale is testament to this. In Thailand O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij's love of art manifested itself in his support of Asian artists, the setting up of 'Liam's Gallery' in Pattaya and a book written by him on Thai art. He was also director of the Phya Thai Palace Restoration Committee. After travelling Thailand from 1963 he settled in Bangkok where a surge in the local property market in the 1970s opened up employment opportunities particularly in the property care services industry. In 1989 he led the management buyout of the company he worked for and formed his own business, which he grew from the mid 1990s. By 2007 the company was employing 23,000 people. As an Irish expatriate O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij was invited in 2009 to the Global Irish Economic Forum in Farmleigh. He was also a founder and director of the Irish Thai Chamber of Commerce and a past president of the Bangkok St. Patrick's Society among other accolades. Outside of the business arena O'Keeffe was a true philanthropist and committed to many charitable organisations including Support the Children Foundation and the Bangkok Nursing Home Hospital. His obituary in the Irish Times this year noted, "He will be remembered for his business acumen, charity work, love of art and boundless enthusiasm."

  • Woven at the Atelier René Douche, France. One of a series of 22 tapestries based on le Brocquy's 1969 illustrations to The Táin. Issued in a limited edition of nine plus two artist's proofs. "I hope that these images from Táin Bó Cuailgne, transmuted into the woven forms of tapestry, may be seen as a tribute to the poet Thomas Kinsella, who inspired them and to the devoted publisher and designer, Liam Miller, who gave them their original coherence" (Louis le Brocquy, op. cit.). Louis le Brocquy was living in France with his young family when he received a life-changing invitation, in December 1966. Publisher Liam Miller wanted him to collaborate with Thomas Kinsella on a new translation of Ireland's oldest saga. Le Brocquy penned an enthusiastic affirmative that Christmas Eve and spent much of the next three years visualising An Táin Bó Cúailgne. In September 1969, Dolmen Press published it as The Táin. The Táin was born of some eighty stories about the Ulaidh, a prehistoric people who lived in the north and north-western regions of what is now called Ireland. Part epic, part soap opera, the tales were vivid, vicious, inconsistent and often rather rude. Oral versions survived for long enough to be collected by scribes, whose fragmentary manuscripts are now in Trinity College and the Royal Irish Academy. Translators and writers such as Lady Gregory and W.B. Yeats had retold some of the Cúchulainn tales - and Joyce's Finnegans Wake drew on its meandering style - but Thomas Kinsella's Táin was the first widely-accessible version, especially when Oxford University Press' 1970 paperback followed the de luxe and limited editions produced by Dolmen Press. The Táin marked a unique cultural moment, for Ireland and the world. The State had just celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1916 Rising and was driving ahead with Seán Lemass' Second Programme for Economic Expansion. By 1969 when it was published, Northern Ireland was in conflict, and global events such as the Prague Spring, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, as well as wars in Vietnam, Angola and elsewhere, underlined its themes of invasion and carnage. Meanwhile, The Beatles sang "All You Need is Love." Its impact was instant. Although characters like Cúchulainn and Ferdia, Medb and Aillil, were local, the collaborators translated them into a crisply contemporaneous style that resonated through the cultural hierarchy. It engaged lovers of art, language, music and Celtic studies, as well as popular culture. The Táin became an Irish Iliad, with Cúchulainn as a Superhero reincarnating to a new age of rock, cartoons and animation. The images le Brocquy called 'shadows thrown by the text' became so iconic that it is almost impossible now to imagine The Táin differently. Yet no one had visualised the full saga previously and no artist from Ireland had engaged so thoroughly with pieces of writing in so collaborative a way. Le Brocquy made hundreds of drawings, many of which appear in the de luxe and limited editions, with a handful printed in the paperback and a precious twenty in tapestry. Communication was difficult in those pre-digital days because he was in France and Miller was in Dublin, so that many key design decisions relied on sending letters through the post. Le Brocquy's innovative, daring approach cast the saga as a virtual alphabet composed of spontaneous, inky letters. This shows immediately in Army Massing, where marks cascade in rivulets that resemble both chain mail and hand-writing, and in the H-shaped Cúchulainn confronting Ferdia. Different ages and cultures whisper through the images - and through the twenty tapestries made during 1998-2000, when le Brocquy collaborated with maître-lissier René Duché, whose firm had recently been awarded the honour Meilleur Ouvrier de France. Cuchulainn's Warp Spasm, for example, speaks both of calligraphic marks from Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Yves Klein's bodily-marked Anthropometries, as well as cave paintings traced by prehistoric peoples. The translation into tapestry, via le Brocquy's Táin lithographs, crested on the momentum from oral to written traditions, from drama to poetry and from visual culture to music. Duché's subtly-textured cottons and wools freed le Brocquy's black-on-white marks into a textured, sensual material that illuminates the sense of a blot or stain without definite edges, which is what he wanted. Here, the statuesque shapes let le Brocquy grow the book's relatively modest scale into a life-affirming series of interconnected images that speak to each other like letters in a phrase or sentence. Le Brocquy's hand reaches out through each one. Medb Ruane April 2012

  • Literature: (Ed.) Lowry, Bernadette, Faces in Times, Oriel Gallery, Dublin / Nicholson & Bass Ltd., Belfast, 2004, p. 6 (illustrated)
  • A copy of the Oriel Gallery publication accompanies this lot. The head image is recognised as one of the major themes in the work of Louis le Brocquy (1916-2012). The series emerged following a visit, in the winter of 1964, to the anthropological museum in Paris, the Musée de l'Homme, where he came across the collection of Polynesian skulls, partly reconstructed with plaster, decorated with painted marks and with cowrie shells for eyes. Le Brocquy had been experiencing a particularly difficult period as an artist and, dissatisfied with the direction of his work which he felt was facile and aimless, he destroyed much of the year's output. The heads resonated with him, however, as he responded to their ritualistic symbolism, triggering his own series of profound images addressing a number of related themes within the overall concept. These were initiated with the ancestral heads series that reflected his perspective of Celtic ethnography. He explained: 'Like the Celts I tend to regard the head as this magic box containing the spirit. Enter that box, enter behind the billowing curtain of the face, and you have the whole landscape of the spirit'. This comment reveals the artist's fundamental interpretation of humanity and the role of the heads in his work. He developed his series to include images of famous writers and artists, such as James Joyce, WB Yeats, Samuel Beckett and Francis Bacon. While many of the subjects, whether of posthumous or living individuals, are identifiable from photographs or other artworks, the theme is less about their surface features than the workings of imagination and creativity. Others in the series are not specific individuals and therefore, stripped of their direct references to known personalities, give full focus to the conditions and processes of the mind, as in Interior Study of Head. This was painted in the early 1970s, when this theme was well established in the artist's oeuvre. It conforms to the general colouration of the series - of muted tones against shades of white - and in terms of composition, with a single head against a plain background, it evinces le Brocquy's empathy with the poignant isolation of the individual. However, Interior Study of Head represents an unusual approach in that it is more explicitly about the inner person. With facial features reduced to a minimum or obliterated entirely, the viewer is drawn into a sense of human psychology, and its intellectual, emotional, and creative dimensions. While the organic forms and colours across the surface of the bones of the head suggest something of the tissue and nerve structures that support mental activity, the fragmentary nature of the execution is less about materiality than elusive traces. Le Brocquy explained this well in an interview with George Morgan that is particularly apt for this work: Clearly it is not possible to paint the spirit. You cannot paint consciousness. You start with the knowledge we all have that the most significant human reality lies beneath material appearance. So, in order to recognise this, to touch this as a painter, I try to paint the head image from the inside out, as it were, working in layers or planes, implying a certain flickering transparency […] [Pierre le Brocquy (ed) and George Morgan (1986), Louis le Brocquy: The Head Image, Gandon Editions, Cork, p.12. ] Dr Yvonne Scott November 2012

  • What is interesting about this rare maquette is that it shows the original figure for the Treasury Building was intended to be a man. This single polished granite slab shows a female figure scaling the wall on one side and a male on the reverse. The site specific commission is located on the historic site of Boland's Mills. The image of the naked girl climbing a vertical wall was inspired by W.B. Yeats' literary personification of Ireland, Cathleen Ní Houlihan. For Gillespie the piece also carries a more contemporary message about a rapidly developing Ireland at that time (1995). The figure's pose and sexuality have prompted the modern audiences to draw links with Frank Miller's Batman or Bram Stoker's Dracula. The 12 foot structure was erected by the artist in 1995 where it remains today.

  • Exhibited: 'Pauline Bewick, New Works', Taylor Galleries, Dublin, 5-20 September, 2003, catalogue no. 19 (illustrated on first page of exhibition catalogue)
  • The exhibition catalogue for the present work outlines the artist's attraction to eggshells as a medium explored in the 2003 Taylor Gallery show. A tactile, fragile creation, Pregnant in the Sky led the catalogue for this new departure in Bewick's oeuvre. For the artist they represent the female and, against "…the blue evening sky look wonderfully like stars". Pauline Bewick was reared on a farm in Co. Kerry and later in England where she lived on a houseboat among other alternative dwellings. Although Bewick lacked a formal education, her mother's belief in her abilities instilled a confidence in the artist which she carries to this day. Bewick has been living and working in Kerry since 1974. She has been the subject of major retrospective exhibitions, 'Two to Fifty' (1,500 works) at the Guinness Hop Store in 1985 and 'The Yellow Man' exhibition in 1996 at the RHA Gallagher Gallery. She has published several illustrated books, Dr James White, former Director of the National Gallery of Ireland, was author of her biography in 1985 and she has been recorded on film in a 1993 documentary on her life by David Shaw-Smith. In September 1998 she was chosen for a portrait of 100 people who have changed the face of Ireland. The Taylor Galleries, Dublin have shown Pauline Bewick's work for most of her career and recently hosted a hugely successful exhibition, 'Pauline Bewick at 75' in 2011.
