  • The first example from this edition can be found in The Academy of Letters in New Dehli. It was presented by Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr Charlie Flanagan, to the Indian Ambassador as a reciprocal gesture for the bust of Yeats' friend, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), the Indian National poet and Nobel Laureate installed in St. Stephen's Green 2011. The bust is modelled on the series of photographs by George Charles Beresford taken in July 1911 - a pivotal year for Yeats - who worked as a photographic portraitist in Knightsbridge, London. Academics contend that Yeats' work post-1911 was strongly influenced by Ezra Pound - who he met that year - becoming more Modern in its concision and imagery. 1911 was also the year he met his future wife "Georgie" Hyde Lees and accompanied the Abbey Players on tour in the USA.

  • Literature
  • William Grattan was born circa 1792, the younger brother of George Grattan. Strickland notes the "careful and laboured" nature of Grattan's work, which earned the artist a medal at the RDS Drawing School for four consecutive years, 1801-1804. He exhibited landscapes and figure subjects at the Artists' Exhibitions in Dublin between 1809 and 1812 and 1815. In 1818 he wrote and published a pamphlet, "Patronage Analysed," addressed to the "Royal Irish Institution for the Encouragement of the Fine Arts in Ireland." In this he concludes by saying: "The painters of this country, owing to the great want of patronage, are obliged to desert the higher walks of the profession for whatever employment in the arts the fleeting taste of the moment may proffer." This is his latest recorded work, but the date of his death is not known.

  • The medal ribbon on the pensioner's uniform would indicate that he was a veteran of the Crimean War. The Royal Hospital Kilmainham dates back to 1680 and provided a home for retired soldiers for the around 250 years. While some pensioners surrendered their allowance to the hospital and lived within the confines as "in-pensioners", others lived outside the Hospital and received their pensions elsewhere. Pensions from the Royal Hospital Kilmainham were administered to soldiers who had served for at least 12 years in the British Army and were discharged from Irish regiments, as well as from some English, Scottish and Welsh units.

  • Literature
  • McCormick was born in Coleraine and studied at the Government School of Design, Belfast. He later travelled to London working with the Illustrated London News among other publications. In 1889, from Trafalgar Studios, McCormick exhibited for the first time with the Royal Academy, London. This would be the beginning of a 30-year relationship with the institution. Snoddy records the artist's address from 1895 as 58 Queen's Road, St. John's Wood; the artist resided at this address for over 40 years. The theme of pirates began to appear in the oeuvre at the turn of the century and the RA index of exhibitors lists two such works shown with them in 1903 and 1904. Among the artist's best-known commissions was the iconic sailor's head and shoulders on the cigarette packets for tobacco manufacturers, John Player & Son in 1927. His works can be found in the Victoria & Albert Museum, Imperial War Museum and the Borough Council, Coleraine among others. For further reading see Snoddy p.370-372.

THE DESERT CHARGE

Aloysius C. O'Kelly (1853-1936)

  • Exhibited
  • Literature
  • Indicative of a broader plan to destabilise Britain in Ireland, in 1883 Aloysius O'Kelly and his brother James went to Sudan to report on the British campaign against the Mahdi, James as correspondent for the Daily News and Aloysius as illustrator for the Pictorial World. With them were a number of French revolutionaries and Socialists who had forged alliances with Irish militant and cultural Nationalists during O'Kelly's sojourn in Paris in the 1870s. British involvement in the region was ostensibly to end the slave trade but, in reality, to extend Anglo-Egyptian influence further south. In 1881, Muhammad Ahmad ibn Abdallah declared himself the prophesied Mahdi and called for a jihad to purge Islam of the infidel and rout the foreign forces from Sudan. His fearsome reputation as a violent anti-colonialist grew over the next three years. The jihad had strong resonance for Fenian opponents of the British regime in Ireland. If 'England is engaged in a great war that will strain her resources to the utmost', wrote James O'Kelly to Michael Davitt, 'seizing some critical moment [if we] attack her with all our power... we help ourselves by promoting the long wished for "opportunity".' There was much at stake; according to the Victorian domino theory, Irish demands for Home Rule constituted the beginning of the disintegration of the empire. The mantra, that Britain's pain was Ireland's gain, was given powerful visual expression by O'Kelly. This work is part of a unique series of paintings and illustrations of these events. Most war artists acted, in effect, as public relations personnel for Britain's colonial projects overseas. O'Kelly's decision to cover the colonial war from behind the battle lines of Britain's enemy was thus an act of remarkable audacity. O'Kelly painted many scenes in the Orientalist manner of his master, Jean-Léon Gérôme. But desert skirmishes, such as this, full of colour and movement, gave rise to several virtuoso paintings by O'Kelly that are unusual in that they demonstrate an early application of Impressionist technique to an Orientalist subject, a further indication of O'Kelly's originality. O'Kelly was at his best when adapting an aesthetic subversion to a political one. Professor Niamh O'Sullivan Inaugural Curator, Great Hunger Museum, Hamden, Connecticut (USA) and Professor Emeritus of Visual Culture, National College of Art and Design, Dublin, author of Aloysius O'Kelly: Art, Nation, Empire, Field Day Publications, 2010.

  • Literature
  • Robert Taylor Carson documented a well-travelled life in paint, from his early years in the Belfast College of Art - where he studied under scholarship from the age of fourteen - to his time in travelling Ireland with his young family and abroad to the United States and Europe. His subject matter is wide-ranging but an interest in people and their way of life is a common thread throughout his oeuvre. In the mid 1940s Taylor Carson became an unofficial war artist capturing the daily life of American troops based in Northern Ireland. This endeavour led to significant portrait commissions in the US. Numerous exhibitions of Taylor Carson's work have taken place throughout Ireland and the UK as well as New York and Chicago. He was also a regular contributor to the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin and the Royal Ulster Academy. Among his contemporaries and friends were Maurice Canning Wilks and Rowel Friers with whom he travelled and painted from counties Donegal to Kerry. Whyte's are delighted to present a selection of lots from the artist's estate in this Important Irish Art sale. Further examples from the collection will appear in our December 2017 sale.

  • Robert Taylor Carson documented a well-travelled life in paint, from his early years in the Belfast College of Art - where he studied under scholarship from the age of fourteen - to his time in travelling Ireland with his young family and abroad to the United States and Europe. His subject matter is wide-ranging but an interest in people and their way of life is a common thread throughout his oeuvre. In the mid 1940s Taylor Carson became an unofficial war artist capturing the daily life of American troops based in Northern Ireland. This endeavour led to significant portrait commissions in the US. Numerous exhibitions of Taylor Carson's work have taken place throughout Ireland and the UK as well as New York and Chicago. He was also a regular contributor to the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin and the Royal Ulster Academy. Among his contemporaries and friends were Maurice Canning Wilks and Rowel Friers with whom he travelled and painted from counties Donegal to Kerry. Whyte's are delighted to present a selection of lots from the artist's estate in this Important Irish Art sale. Further examples from the collection will appear in our December 2017 sale.
