  • Around 1983 George McClelland approached Wexford weaver Terry Dunne to create five unique tapestries based on original artworks by Tony O'Malley from his collection. According to Dunne, these tapestries were originally intended for inclusion in the artist's Arts Council Retrospective in 1984 however this idea was never realised. Instead the artworks remained in the McClelland private collection unseen by the public until now. We are grateful to Terry Dunne for his kind assistance in cataloguing these works. Dunne continues his successful practice in County Wexford and has since produced commissioned pieces for Jane O'Malley, Michael Smurfit & The K Club, Co. Kildare, Monaghan Cathedral, Dublin City University, Irish Life Beresford Place, Dublin and Green Isle Foods among others. For further reading see: www.terrytheweaver.ie

  • The Art Collection of Desmond P.H. Windle (1933-2014) Whyte’s are proud to present the collection of pictures and sculpture formed by Desmond Windle, a distinguished lawyer and art lover. Desmond’s life-long interest in art developed as a young solicitor in 1950s Dublin, inspired by his aunt’s (Molly Matthews) love of art. A regular attendee at galleries and studios, he collected modern and contemporary Irish art for over 60 years. He supported many young emerging artists and, in the early days, acquired some paintings by way of barter in exchange for legal advice to the frequently impecunious artists being threatened with eviction. Invariably their tenancy was secured. He never stopped collecting and decorated all available wall space in his home with a diverse collection of works and, thereafter, most available floor space. Favourites included works by Patrick Collins, John Behan, Michael Kane, Gerald Davis, Felim Egan, Robert Ballagh, Charles Brady, Charles Harper, George Campbell, Bernadette Madden and Seán McSweeney. Works from this wonderful collection, included in this 2 October 2017 sale, are lots 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 26, 35, 48, 50, 53, 54, 56, 58, 59, 62, 66, 67, 91, 92, 94, 102, 103, 111, 112, 116, 120, 121, 122, 124 and 169.

  • Both Henry Kirchhoffer and Frederick Buck lived and worked as miniaturists in Cork. Kirchhoffer from c.1802 to 1815 and Buck, a native of the city, from 1787. Henry Kirchhoffer was descended from a Swiss surgeon who served in Ireland under William III. He entered the Dublin Society's Schools in 1797, and in 1801 he exhibited two portrait drawings in the Parliament House. For some years afterwards he resided in Cork, where he practised as a miniature painter, and from there, in 1802, he sent five miniatures to the exhibition held that year in the Parliament House. Twenty-four works by him were in the First Munster Exhibition held in Cork in 1815. He returned to Dublin in 1816 and sent a number of drawings to the exhibitions held in the Dublin Society's House in Hawkins Street in 1817 and 1819. He also exhibited in 1821, and contributed a "Portrait of Charles Robertson," the miniature painter, to the water-colour exhibition held in 1823. This portrait was presented by Mr E.S. Robertson to the National Gallery of Ireland in 1903 [NGI.2523]. Kirchhoffer was one of the original Associates of the RHA, and was elected a Member in 1826. He was an exhibitor from 1826 to 1834, chiefly of landscapes and portraits in water-colour, and also of miniatures and figure subjects. In 1835 he settled in London and exhibited at the Royal Academy and elsewhere from 1837 to 1843 chiefly portraits. After 1843 little is known of him as an artist. He lived in Brighton for some years, and returning to London he died at 71 St. John's Wood Terrace aged 79. Younger brother of Adam Buck (1759-1833 also a miniaturist), Frederick, was born in Cork in 1771. He was, perhaps, the Frederick Buck admitted as a pupil to the Dublin Society's drawing school in 1783. He practised as a miniature painter in Cork for a long period. In 1787 he was living at Fen's Quay; in 1795 in Mardyke Street; in 1810 and for some years after, in George's Quay, and later in Buckingham Square. During the Peninsula war, when Cork was a busy port of embarkation of troops, Buck had so many orders for portraits of officers and others going to the seat of war that he kept a supply of partly-painted ivories to which he added the heads and the regimental facings, etc., when his customers gave him hurried sittings. His miniatures are numerous. Buck was successful in his profession and was enabled to retire some years before his death, which took place about 1839 or 1840. For further reading on both artists see Strickland Vol I. p.581-582 (Kirchhoffer) and p.123 (Buck, F.) Henry Kirchhoffer was descended from a Swiss surgeon who served in Ireland under William III. He entered the Dublin Society's Schools in 1797, and in 1801 he exhibited two portrait drawings in the Parliament House. For some years afterwards he resided in Cork, where he practised as a miniature painter, and from there, in 1802, he sent five miniatures to the exhibition held that year in the Parliament House.

He lived in Brighton for some years, and returning to London he died at 71 St. John's Wood Terrace aged 79. Younger brother of Adam Buck (1759-1833 also a miniaturist), Frederick, was born in Cork in 1771. He was, perhaps, the Frederick Buck admitted as a pupil to the Dublin Society's drawing school in 1783. He practised as a miniature painter in Cork for a long period. In 1787 he was living at Fen's Quay; in 1795 in Mardyke Street; in 1810 and for some years after, in George's Quay, and later in Buckingham Square. During the Peninsula war, when Cork was a busy port of embarkation of troops, Buck had so many orders for portraits of officers and others going to the seat of war that he kept a supply of partly-painted ivories to which he added the heads and the regimental facings, etc., when his customers gave him hurried sittings. His miniatures are numerous. Buck was successful in his profession and was enabled to retire some years before his death, which took place about 1839 or 1840. For further reading on both artists see Strickland Vol I. p.581-582 (Kirchhoffer) and p.123 (Buck, F.)

Price Realised: €8500

  • Provenance
  • Exhibited
  • Literature
  • The Mask of the Boyne is a larger than life-size bronze interpretation of Edward Smyth's River God keystone on the South facade of Dublin's Custom House. The face is fine and perhaps expresses a pensive and perhaps worried countenance. The head is crowned by leaves of laurel intermixed with ears of wheat. Notable for cattle today, it would appear that the banks of the Boyne in Meath were abundant in grain in the eighteenth century. The presentation of the beard is redolent of the meandering of the Boyne as it winds its way in a north easterly direction for seventy miles through counties Offaly, Meath and Louth before entering the Irish Sea below the historic town of Drogheda. In 1773, on the recommendation of the right Hon. John Beresford, Chief Commissioner of Revenue, it was decided that a new Custom House be built on the site of what was then called the North Lots. Designed by James Gandon, it was completed in 1791 at a cost of nearly half a million pounds. Gandon engaged Smith, to executed the various decorations in the frieze and in the interior of the building, and the fourteen heads symbolical of the principal Rivers of Ireland, on the keystones of the arches. Impressed by Smiths depictions of the river heads, Gandon says that they...."are executed by Mr. E. Smith, a native of Ireland, a gentleman who, without having had the advantage of foreign travel or opportunity of seeing many specimens of sculpture, has given proof of abilities equal to any in the Three Kingdoms." The Custom House was the first major public building built in Dublin as an isolated structure with four monumental façades. It is often considered architecturally the most important building in Dublin and is sited on the riverfront with Beresford Place to the rear. The site chosen for the new Custom House met with much opposition from city merchants at the time, who feared that its move down river from its original site at Essex Quay would lessen the value of their properties while making the property owners down river wealthier.
