KILCATHERINE, COUNTY CORK
KILCATHERINE, COUNTY CORK
John Kingerlee (b.1936)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 30 November 2004 / 20

Published Estimate: €3,000-4,000

Price Realised: €7000

  • Signature: signed in monogram lower right; inscribed, dated [1993] and signed again on reverse
  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 27 by 47cm., 10.5 by 18.5in.
  • This work was featured in the recent RTE "Nationwide" television programme on the artist. For the past twenty-two years John Kingerlee has lived and worked in West Cork on the Beara Peninsular, looking out across Kenmare Bay towards the mountains of Kerry. His multi-layered paintings evolve over months and years, accumulating strata in a manner that echoes the geological processes that formed the surrounding landscape. Scrutinising the resultant pitted and textured paint surfaces is like looking at a relief sculpture, but the fact that the underlying layers remains visible creates a sense of infinitely receding space, and the experience is akin to that of looking through a window towards the sky or sea (Kingerlee’s studio window is oriented thus). In Kilcatherine, Co. Cork, half-formed shapes come in and out of focus, similar in manner to the work of Yeats, and the sensuously applied colours evoke a pervasive mood or atmosphere that induces contemplation. Jonathan Benington is currently writing a monograph on Kingerlee, Bath, October 2004

Camille Souter HRHA (b.1929)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 30 November 2004 / 33

Published Estimate: €8,000-10,000

Price Realised: 

  • Signature: signed and dated [1958] lower right; titled and signed again on reverse
  • Medium: oil on paper
  • Dimensions: 46 by 61cm., 18 by 24in.
  • Provenance: Dawson Gallery, Dublin
  • Camille Souter first came to London in 1948 to train as a nurse. While studying there she took the opportunity to visit as many exhibitions and concerts as possible. It was she recalls “the most wonderful education I ever had”.1 When she arrived she still went by the name of Betty Pamela Holmes. By 1951 she had married the Old Vic actor Gordon Souter. Her first husband is said to have nicknamed her “Camille” as an allusion to the tubercular heroine of Alexander Dumas La Dame aux Camelias. After completing her nursing studies, she almost immediately began to paint full-time. In London, Betty Pamela Holmes, the nurse, became Camille Souter, the bohemian artist. During the mid-fifties she left the city, dividing her time between Italy and Ireland. On her way to Italy in 1958, she found herself in “London Again” for a brief three days. This work is almost certainly based on that experience. From a technical perspective the painting is typical of her style at the time. The artist has achieved a range of subtle textures by pressing a sheet of paper or rags against the surface. It is almost an “all-over” painting, in the sense that no one area of the work seems immediately more important than the another. As a result the exact representational content remains elusive. The yellow-orange colour at the center of the work may describe street-lights. The atmosphere is almost reminiscent of T. S. Elliot’s Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and “The yellow fog that rubs its back against the panes”. The analogy with a window may not be inappropriate either. A year earlier the artist had produced some views from windows in Dublin. Nevertheless it is impossible to offer a definitive interpretation. 1 Quote from an interview with the artist, March 1998.

  • In 1955 Alicia Boyle first visited Spain and there found a landscape imbued with a sense of poetry and mythology, similar to those which she had previously discovered in Greece and Ireland. In particular she was struck by the town of El Pindo on the Galician coast, where the unusually shaped hill had once been a sort of ‘Mt Olympus’ for the Celtic people who lived there. Hilary Pyle describes this period in her art as a time when location took precedence over legend and when she began to achieve “the spiritual sense of matter her master Ernest Jackson had urged her to pursue”, identifying the present work as one such which possessed “this inherent inspiration of locality” (op. cit. , p. 13).
