INDECISION, c.1950
INDECISION, c.1950
Daniel O’Neill (1920-1974)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 25 May 2015 / 59

Published Estimate: €20,000-30,000

Price Realised: €0

  • Signature: signed upper left; titled on reverse; with IELA exhibition label also on reverse
  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 34 x 29½in. (86.36 x 74.93cm)
  • Provenance: Adam's, 31 March 1999, lot 86;Private collection
  • Exhibited: Irish Exhibition of Living Art, The National College of Art, Kildare Street, Dublin, 16 August to 10 September 1950, catalogue no. 74 (£55-0-0)
  • Indecision is an extremely ambiguous and emotionally charged painting and reveals both O'Neill's ambition and also his awareness of his contemporaries. Painted not long after O'Neill had travelled to Paris, where he had painted Place du Tertre (NMNI) and possibly also The Blue Skirt, which he exhibited the previous year at the Irish Exhibition of Living Art, Indecision appears to show a Belfast street scene.While birds often appeared in Colin Middleton's paintings, often alongside female figures, and cats occurred in those of Gerard Dillon, animals are seen less regularly in O'Neill's work. Indecision is a painting which fits more closely alongside those of his contemporaries than is usual, recalling the Belfast street scenes Middleton and Dillon had painted in the early 1940s; but the heightened emotional mood of the work is typical of O'Neill at this period. In part this mood is expressed through swirling passages of impasto and tenebrist lighting that set a dramatic tone and give an almost hallucinatory mood to the stark setting. This setting is highly theatrical; light pours from a streetlight and two illuminated windows in a building behind the girl (although she appears to be facing a light source as well). Her simplified, mask-like features prefigure similarly treated figures in a slightly later painting such as Birth (1952), as well as recalling O'Neill's interest in painting puppets. This anonymity allows him to use the girl's posture to express emotions of doubt and uncertainty, with her shoulders weighed down and her feet poised on the edge of the pavement and half in shadow, appearing to being about to carry her cat away from the brightly lit buildings behind her.The cat seems to capture something of the girl's personality as well as her vulnerability and social isolation. Her pink-ish coat or cardigan recalls the red waistcoats that are so often worn by men in O'Neill's early work, and along with her red beret the use of colour isolates her from the street scene behind. The exact nature of the situation appears elusive but it is interesting to note that in the 1940s O'Neill had exhibited paintings with titles such as Trapped, Reverberation and Meditation by the Sea, suggesting that he found these almost Victorian themes extremely stimulating in the subjects they suggested.Dickon HallApril 2015

Price Realised: €20000

  • Signature: signed lower right; with typed label detailing title on reverse
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 53 x 42in. (134.62 x 106.68cm)
  • Provenance: Private Collector Gallery, Inishannon, Co. Cork;Where purchased by the present owner (2004)
  • Literature: Patrick Swift (1927-1983) An Irish Painter in Portugal, Gandon Editions, Cork, 2001, catalogue no. 106, p.31 (full page illustration)
  • Girl in a Garden dates to the early 1950s and forms part of an interesting body of early work created in his studio on Hatch Street, Dublin which he shared with poet Anthony Cronin. The painting depicts the artist’s girlfriend American poet Claire McAllister seated inthe garden of the studio. Together they formed part of an influential Dublin cultural set that included Patrick Kavanagh, Nano Reid and Brendan Behan among others. In 1949 Swift met Lucian Freud and, as Cronin recalls, by 1950 theacquaintance was well-developed. “Lucian, who was staying in Ireland, used to come around in the mornings to paint, so that sometimes when I surfaced around ten or eleven I would find them both at work inthe studio next door.”1Girl in a Garden recalls Girl with Blue Thistles which sold through Whyte’s on 29 September 2008 as lot 88 (€32,000) also painted during his early life in Dublin.Freud’s early influence on Swift - his junior by five years - is evident in both works which are dispassionate, stylised and severe. Swift howeverwas less preoccupied with texture and more concerned with tone; a dominant feature in the present example. At first glance the subject appears somewhat ordinary set against a frugal palette but closer examination reveals an environment that is more surreal than natural and a subject that is imbued with tension and ambiguity rather than indifference. Claire sits perched on the edge of the garden steps slightly below the artist’s line of vision and somewhat dwarfed by an unearthly invasion of vegetation from a neighbouring garden. The rickety patio door hangs open and there is a sense of detachment in spite of their obvious proximity. In 1950 Swift showed his first works in public at the IELA; the following year at the same show his paintings were singled out by Dublin Magazine for their exceptional technical ability and “uncompromising clarity of vision which eschews the accidental or the obvious or the sentimental”. His first solo exhibition came in 1952 at the Waddington Galleries, Dublin. Later in the 1950s Swift and Freud met again in London, where he coedited a literary and arts journal, X, and mingled with other leading artists of the period including Francis Bacon, John Minton and Leon Kossoff. In 1962 Swift and his wife visited the Algarve where they eventually settled and established Porches Pottery. He continued to exhibit on occasion in Dublin; his portrait of Patrick Kavanagh (CIÉ Collection) was shown at the RHA in 1968. A significant solo show was held in Lisbon in 1974 but it was not until 1993 (the centenary of his death) that Irish audiences could enjoy his work en masse at a major retrospective in IMMA. We are grateful to Stephen O’Mara for his assistance in cataloguing this work.

Price Realised: €4000

  • Signature: signed upper left; inscribed with title on reverse; with Dawson Gallery framing label on reverse
  • Medium: gouache on buff-coloured paper
  • Dimensions: 15 x 21in. (38.10 x 53.34cm)
  • Provenance: Collection of Mrs Irene Calvert MP; Thence by descent
  • 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.

  • According to a contemporary inscription on reverse, this theme was suggested to the artist after listening to Chris Barber's Band.Both Colin Middleton and his wife Kate had a deep and wide-ranging interest in music and it was a theme that he explored in a number of works throughout his career, most notably in the series of paintings and drawings from the 1960s of Kate playing the piano.Jazz was a particular passion and at the time Duet was painted, Middleton was living in Belfast at Camden Street and was part of a circle of jazz enthusiasts. Neil Shawcross recalled an enthusiasm for jazz that was evident at the numerous parties he would throw at Camden Street, and the energy and rhythm of many of his paintings reflect Colin's own jazz-inspired animation." (i)The present painting demonstrates the interest in austerity and extreme simplification of form that Middleton explored in the early 1960s, in contrast to the lush and expressive qualities of many works from the previous decade. His visual language is pared down, ambiguous and witty and the picture space is flattened and spatially uncertain. The seated pianist on the left recalls images of Kate at the piano, but what appears to be a keyboard to the right can also be read as another musician facing us, and the pianist's arms could even metamorphose into the lower right arm of this figure perhaps playing a double bass or a guitar.The small white circle and the suggestion of a row of strings above and below connect this work with the subtle hints of musical instruments in the cubist paintings and collages of Picasso and Braque. Middleton's image shares the invention and energy of the performance it apparently recalls, while also carrying overtones of the landscape with which Middleton so liked to integrate the figure through the suggestions of wood and rocks.
