  • Dimensions: 20 by 10.75in., 50.8 by 27.305cm.
  • Provenance: The Estate of 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."
