DON QUIXOTE FOR MICHEAL FARRELL, 1981
Brian Bourke HRHA (b.1936)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 9 December 2012 / 102

Published Estimate: €200-300

Price Realised: €220

  • Signature: signed and dated in the margin lower right; dedicated [To Micheal Farrell] lower centre; numbered lower left
  • Medium: lithograph; (no. 8 from an edition of 60)
  • Dimensions: 23.25 by 18.5in., 59.055 by 46.99cm.
  • Provenance: The Estate of Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij
  • Sheet size: 24.5 by 15.5in. 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."

  • Jim O'Driscoll was a renowned barrister by profession but also a passionate patron of the arts with a keen eye for beauty. Director of the Fenton Gallery in Cork for ten years, he built lasting ties with the arts community buying regularly from galleries throughout Ireland as well as from artists directly. His strong connections with Cork in particular are reflected in both his subject choice and his support for its native artists, among them, Maurice Desmond. He was an early supporter and friend of Tony O'Malley and the late William Crozier and their paintings within his collection are testament to his access to the very best from their respective oeuvres. All the masters in Irish art from the eighties and nineties are well represented in his collection, although some, for example those by Evie Hone and Gerard Dillon, come from an earlier generation.
