Price Realised: €1600

  • Signature: signed on ledge lower right
  • Medium: oil on copper

  • The two still lifes [lots 159 & 160] in this auction are painted on copper sheet. Copper has been used for several centuries as a support for oil paintings, and artists often used the reverse side of old etching plates for their works. Though limited in dimensions, this material provides a smooth and stable surface which is unaffected by humidity and does not deteriorate with time.Stuart Morle often employs a small format to experiment with intimate arrangements of simple objects. These studies then enable him to approach larger and more complex compositions with greater confidence. An example of the combination of still life into a painting with a figure may be seen in his Pictura which was exhibited and sold last year at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, London.

  • Literature: Crookshank, Anne, 'Robert Hunter', Irish Arts Review Yearbook, 1989/90, Vol. 87, p.169-185 (illustrated p.179)
  • Half-length portrait where the sitter is painted within an oval, a device used regularly by Hunter. This is the latest known portrait by the artist, which is dated 1790.Robert Hunter was the principal portrait painter of the eighteenth century. Little is known about his early life or his family other than he was born in Ulster and studied art under Thomas Pope. Hunter had a very wide range of clients such as Sir Charles Burton, Lord Taaffe, Samuel Madden and Viscount Powerscourt. He contributed six works to the exhibition of the Society of Artists in George's Lane, Dublin in 1765. He regularly contributed to the exhibition of the Dublin Artists up to 1777, and again, for the last time, in 1788. Hunter was for many years at the head of his profession as a portrait painter until the arrival of Robert Home in 1780. Age may have been another contributing factor to the decline in his productivity. He held an exhibition and sale of his pictures in 1792.
