  • Provenance: Commissioned by the present owner's family c.1950s;Thence by descent
  • As a painter Blackshaw has always found abundant inspiration in the immediate world around him. He grew up on a farm in Boardmills, near Ballynahinch, Co. Down, where his father kept stables and it is therefore not surprising that his subject matter has been dominated by the countryside and its lifestyle. Horses were an important part of life for the young Blackshaw and his early experience with them can be seen in his exceptional capacity for painting equine subjects. Indeed he met his fees at the Belfast College of Art from his earnings as a horse portraitist; the present work, which dates to the mid 1950s, was one such commission.In May 2012 the F.E. McWilliam Gallery in conjunction with the RHA presented 'Blackshaw at 80', which featured over fifty works by the artist. Blackshaw's horses, along with other favourite animal subjects, formed a major part of the show.

  • 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. (1)This painting is an early example of one of the most important series in Louis le Brocquy's oeuvre. In the winter of 1964, the artist paid a visit to the anthropology museum in Paris, the Musée de l'Homme. He had been experiencing something of a crisis in terms of the development of his work, destroying many images with which he was dissatisfied, and he felt at a loss as to how to progress. At the museum, he came across a collection of Polynesian skulls, decorated for ritualistic purposes, and this was to prove the impetus for one of the defining themes of his work. It sparked in him a recognition of the potential of the head image and its relevance to his interpretation of Celtic ethnography. This encounter is credited with inspiring his own series of profound images within the overall concept. This ranged from the early Ancestral Heads, to which this work belongs, and evolved into the portrait series of great writers and artists, like Samuel Beckett and Francis Bacon.Ancestral Head (1965) was carried out in the months following the artist's epiphany and it typifies the series. Presented frontally, it is rendered in white and pale tones, and seems to emerge disembodied from a muted ground. The bands on the dome of the head are a feature of some of the early examples suggesting ancient adornments and a concept of Celtic ancestry. The unidentified individual and the generalisation of the features which are deliberately blurred, infers a universal relevance. The work reflects the artist's stated intention to represent human reality beneath the material appearance. Dr Yvonne ScottJanuary 20141. The artist in conversation with Michael Peppiatt, 1979, (Ed., le Brocquy, P., Louis le Brocquy, The Head Image, Gandon, Cork, 1996, p.22-23

Auction Date / Lot No.: 24 February 2014 / 90

Published Estimate: €€8000-€10000

Price Realised: €8000

  • Medium: copper; (unique)
  • Dimensions: 257.5 by 112.5 by 12in., 257.5 by 112.5 by 30cm.
  • Provenance: Commissioned for Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda
  • This 9ft long Christ figure, entitled Resurrection, is part of a major commission done by Edward Delaney for Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, commissioned by the Medical Missionaries of Mary and specifically their pioneering superior, Mother Mary Martin, who wanted a modern artistic display for the new hospital. Delaney always gave great credit to the Catholic Church for its support for art, design and sculpture and for the artistic leeway that he was given. For the Drogheda project, Delaney created a dome for the mortuary chapel, with 90 square feet of bronze reliefs, depicting the life of Christ as well as this figure. The work was completed in 1961 and is very fine representation of Delaney's early stark style, influenced by post war German Expressionist sculpture (Delaney studied sculpture in Germany from 1954 to 1958) as well the work of the Italian master Giacomo Manzu, who specialised in the virtually two dimensional paneled figure, similar to this.In a June 1963 interview with the Sunday Review (an Irish Times title), Delaney spoke about the Drogheda project and described how he believed '…a spiritual figure to be an abstract form of harmony', and that 'the spiritual quality of such a figure should come from the way the artist shapes the material; moulds and forms'. However, he said he couldn't 'explain the figure' as he didn't think 'an artist should ever explain a piece of sculpture. It is simply a statement made in bronze, or another material. If anyone doesn't understand a statement by an artist, I don't think it could be explained to them.'

  • Bewick has described the Yellow Man as ...my ideal being - complete without a partner. He represents total happiness. He is happy and content alone with nature."

The character of the Yellow Man was the inspiration for a dance / theatre piece of the same name devised by Brian Thunder and Michael Scott and performed at the RHA Gallagher Gallery, Dublin in conjunction with Bewick's exhibition in January 1996."
