  • Provenance: Collection of Mrs Irene Calvert MP since 1952; Thence by descent
  • Exhibited: CEMA Basil Blackshaw & Martin McKeowan", Donegal Street Gallery, Belfast, September 1952"
  • It was following, and partly as a result of this commission, that the artist was commissioned to paint the then Governor of Northern Ireland, LordWakehurst. Irene Calvert was an enthusiastic patron of Blackshaw and other young artists in Northern Ireland during the 1950s. Irene Calvert (1909-2000) was a Northern Irish politician and economist. Bornin Belfast, as Lillian Irene Mercer Earls, she studied at Methodist College, Belfast. She studied economics and philosophy at Queen's University, Belfast. In 1941 she was appointed Chief Welfare Officer for Northern Ireland, immediately having to organise care for a flood of wartime evacuees. In 1944, she contested a by-election for the Queen's University Belfastconstituency. She was unsuccessful but stood again in the Northern Ireland general election, 1945, as an independent (non-party) candidate, and on thisoccasion succeeded in taking a seat at Stormont. She held the seat until she stood down at the 1953 election. In Parliament, she avoided the traditional Unionist versus Nationalist arguments, which she regarded as a distraction from the real task of socialreform, including the passage of the Education Act, 1947. In her resignation speech, she did however question whether the Northern Irish economy couldthrive while the partition of Ireland continued. In 1950 Calvert began working at the Ulster Weaving Company as an economist, and having successfully helped build up their institutional sales was appointed a managing director. In 1956 she was invited to become a group chairman at the Duke of Edinburgh's Study Conference on Industry. She also served on the Belfast City Chamber of Commerce, becoming its first - and, to date, only - woman president in 1965-1966. She also served on Queen's University's Senate and Board of Curators, and was active in the Irish Association. In 1964, she worked as an executive manager with Great Southern Hotels, a subsidiary of CIE, the Irish Transport Company, with whom she worked until early 1970. She retired to Dublin where she was an active supporter of the Irish Labour Party until her death in 2000.

  • Samuel Dixon was the son of Thomas Dixon, hosier, Cork Hill, and brother of John Dixon, the engraver. As early as 1748 he was established as a picture dealer and painter in Capel-street, at the house formerly occupied by Dr. Sheridan, grandfather of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, where he sold 'Flower-pieces, drawings in Indian ink, landscapes in oyl for chimneys, and small ditto done on vellum in water-colour fit for ladies' closets.'Dixon became noted for his flower and bird pieces in basso-relievo. The designs for these were impressed on sheets of coarse grey paper, by copper plates from the back, so that the design stood out in relief. They were afterwards coloured by hand. Dixon employed several young men, who lived in his house, to colour these designs; amongst them being James Reily and Gustavus Hamilton, afterwards well-known miniature painters in Dubli. These flower and bird pieces, which were very popular, are now rarely met with." - Walter G. Strickland 'A Dictionary of Irish Artists', Dublin, 1913"
