  • Dimensions: 48 x 48in. (121.92 x 121.92cm)
  • Provenance: Taylor Galleries, Dublin;Collection of the late Jim O'Driscoll SC
  • This work is part of a series of pond paintings made by O'Malley over the later years of his life. In 1977 he and his wife Jane had bought a cottage at Physicanstown in Co. Kilkenny which became their permanent home in 1990. The garden was carefully cultivated and its pond provided the inspiration for an ongoing cycle of works that signal the stability of O'Malley's domestic surroundings and its impact on his artwork. Thinly painted on board Pond Reverie I explores the changing effects of sunlight on water. Reflections of light on the surface and on the fish and plant life below are picked out in bright oranges and blues. Flecks of impasto across the composition along with dots of flickering colourful forms suggest the vigorous organic life of the pond and create a rich and absorbing work of art.Dr. Róisín Kennedy

  • Medium: oil on canvas; (3)
  • Dimensions: 70 x 60in. (177.80 x 152.40cm)
  • Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner
  • Barrie Cooke has always been influenced by the natural world. 'His involvement with the land emerges from his obsession with nature and its continual change - changing light, changing reflections in water, and the powerful changes brought about by growth itself.' (1) The motto 'everything flows' inscribed on his studio wall could describe the style of his flowing paint at the command of nature. Forest Tryptych was likely influenced by a trip to the rainforest of the Malaysian Borneo 1975. Cooke has described the profound influence of this tropical environment as 'the only time in my life where the paintings almost made themselves'.Cooke settled in Ireland in 1954 but was born in England and educated at Harvard, Skowhegan and Kokoschka's School of Seeing in Salzburg. A founder member of Independent Artists and Aosdána, he served on the boards of the Douglas Hyde Gallery and the Butler Gallery. He exhibited regularly at the Hendriks Gallery, Dublin, and, from 1986, at the Kerlin Gallery.Footnote:1. Walker, Dorothy, Modern Art in Ireland, The Lilliput Press, Dublin 1997, page 74

Basil Blackshaw HRHA RUA (1932-2016)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 30 May 2016 / 73

Published Estimate: €10000-15000

Price Realised: €0

  • Signature: signed lower right; signed and titled on reverse
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 19½ x 23½in. (49.53 x 59.69cm)
  • Basil Blackshaw is renowned as a painter who immerses himself visually and physically in the landscapes he paints so as to distil an effective and truthful pictorial reaction. While the paintings that emerged from his long study of Colin Mountain were arguably more preoccupied with space, light and structure, the landscapes on either side of this series often evoke a very expressive and instinctive recollection of the experience of being in a specific and often familiar place.Blackshaw's palette is also truthful to the place, not necessarily naturalistic but strongly connected to the mood of a landscape, as we see in Trees at Cogry. The intensity of the painting is the result of this limited and heavy palette as much as it is of the energetic, broadly-worked passages of paint. A pathway seems to lead between the strong forms of tree trunks in the foreground but the painting is dominated by these verticals and the lack of a sense of space gives them even more power within the composition and creates a slightly claustrophobic mood. While it is perhaps unlikely to have been influential within the subject or manner of working, it is still interesting to note that the name Cogry, in this case a townland close to Blackshaw's County Antrim home, apparently comes from the Irish word for border-land or frontier; certainly Blackshaw often gives the sense of exploring uncertain or uneasy territories within some of his landscape paintings.

  • Signature: signed lower right
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 72 x 128in. (182.88 x 325.12cm)
  • Provenance: Oliver Sears Gallery, Dublin;Private collection
  • A copy of the Ocean Frequency exhibition catalogue accompanies this lot.The present work is inspired by the coastline of the West of Ireland at the junction where the sea meets the land. In his introduction to the Oliver Sears exhibition catalogue Theo Dorgan aptly describes the subject thus, 'It is true that the artist is revisiting a terrain with which he is familiar, a topography he has painted before, and the resulting works may strike many as familiar. The sea falls on the land with a great weight, and obdurate rock holds out against the incoming sea with a great endurance. There is drama in this primary confrontation, a strong and sometimes exhilirating sense of contention, of irrresistable force rolling in a long thunder against immovable object. There is the shock of the impact, that collision of forces, safely frozen before our eyes.'Born in Limerick, Donald Teskey studied at the Limerick College of Art and Design, before moving to Dublin where he has lived for over twenty years, painting and teaching at NCAD. Teskey's canvases are carefully mapped out in terms of tone and chiaroscuro, creating a pervasive sense of mystery to his compositions using vigorously applied impasto, which the artist applies with plasterers' trowels, scraping back, repainting, and sculpting his paint in a rich, thick layer, covering all. The present work, Ocean Frequency Diptych, was the largest and most important work shown at the Oliver Sears 2012 exhibition.

The original plaster models for each are in the Birmingham City Art Gallery. Foley was one of the most eminent sculptors of the Victorian era. Strickland considered him 'at his best, superior to any of his contemporaries' (Dictionary of Irish Artists, Vol. I, page 359). Born in Dublin, Foley entered the RDS Drawing Schools at an early age, winning numerous prizes and medals in modelling, before going to London to further his career at the RA School. From the 1840s onwards he won numerous prestigious commissions, not least of which was the central figure of the Prince Consort for the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens, and the O'Connell Monument in Sackville Street (now O'Connell Street), Dublin. His statues of Burke and Goldsmith are likewise ranked among his most important works.

THE LANDING OF KING GEORGE IV AT HOWTH HARBOUR, 1821
THE LANDING OF KING GEORGE IV AT HOWTH HARBOUR, 1821

  • On his fifty-ninth birthday, 12 August 1821, King George IV crossed the Irish Sea aboard the 'Lightning' steamboat on the first peaceful mission to the island of Ireland by a British monarch. The present view shows an excited crowd, some raising their arms and caps and others moving hurriedly downhill towards Howth pier. Ireland's Eye can be seen clearly in the distance and, to the right, the King's arrival is clearly visible, marked out by the billowing smoke coming from the novel steam vessel; which would in itself have been an unusual and exciting sight to locals. The royal vessel is followed by the rest of the royal squadron, each bearing the monarch's flag. The Martello tower to the right of the composition boasts a sizeable union jack to welcome the monarch. King George landed at Howth about half past four in the afternoon to a smaller crowd than was anticipated, owing to the recent passing of the Queen, and although his stay was brief it was perceived to have been a success in spite of reports that he was drunk on arrival and that the main purpose of his trip was to spend time with his mistress, Lady Conyngham, at Slane Castle. A sizeable painting (89.2 by 138cm) titled The Embarkation of George IV at Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire) 3rd September 1821 by Sadler recorded the historic departure of the King. This was exhibited for the first time in decades at the Gorry Gallery in summer 2012. Other contemporary scenes of the same occasion by Joseph Patrick Haverty (1794-1864) and Joseph F. Ellis (c.1783-1848) were included in that show.In keeping with Sadler's larger embarkation scene, the present work displays a similar technique in the impastoed use of white paint, which highlights the figures and other elements of the composition giving a perceptible texture to the painted surface and an overall sense of movement within the scene. However, in contrast to the pomp and occasion of his departure, here Sadler focuses on the ordinary local spectators to this impending momentous event. He includes their modest dwellings that line the pathway towards the festivities below, as well as the smoke wafting from their chimneys; a charming visual cue to the subject in the distance.
