STUDY FOR THE HUMAN CHILD
STUDY FOR THE HUMAN CHILD
Louis le Brocquy HRHA (b.1916)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 20 September 2005 / 11

Published Estimate: €5,000-7,000

Price Realised: €13000

  • Signature: signed and dated [1948] lower right; inscribed and signed again on reverse; also original exhibition label on reverse
  • Medium: monotype - oil on card
  • Dimensions: 20 by 25cm., 8 by 10in.
  • Provenance: Leicester Galleries, London; Whence purchased by Mrs F. Hollebone; Private collection
  • Exhibited: Leicester Galleries, London, June 1948, catalogue no. 30
  • The Human Child belongs to le Brocquy’s series of apocalyptic paintings from the late 1940s, which featured travelling people or ‘tinkers’ as symbols of the dispossessed who wandered Europe after the Second World War. The series included The Fearful World, In Fear of Cain and Man Creating Bird, all painted in 1948. The Human Child is perhaps the gentlest work from the series. Its title alludes to the human child of Yeat’s poem, The Stolen Child, whom faeries tempt away from worldly troubles: “Come away, O human child! / To the waters and the wild / With a faery, hand in hand, / For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand”. The oil painting for which this is a study was exhibited at the RHA in 1951 and at £135 was the artist’s highest priced exhibit at the time (present whereabouts unknown). With thanks to Pierre le Brocquy for his help in cataloguing this work.

  • Signature: signed lower left; inscribed on reverse
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 66 by 76cm., 26 by 30in.
  • Provenance: De Vere's, Dublin, November 1995; Peppercanister Gallery, Dublin; Whence purchased by the present owners
  • Exhibited: ‘Gerard Dillon’, Dawson Gallery, Dublin, 12 June - 2 July 1968, catalogue no. 17; ‘Summer Exhibition’, Peppercanister Gallery, Dublin, 11 June - 4 July 2003, catalogue no. 11 (illustrated on front of catalogue)
  • In 1962 Dillon began a series of paintings incorporating the figure of the masked pierrot, which he would work on until his death (for a fuller discussion of the series see James White, Gerard Dillon: An Illustrated Biography, Wolfhound Press, Dublin, 1994, pages 90-94). The series began with And the Time Passes (1962), which depicted two clowns hand-in-hand and was a direct response to the death of his brother, Joe. Over the next three years Dillon’s other two brothers died of the same heart defect that had taken Joe, and Dillon began meditating on his own mortality. The initial pierrot pictures thus took on an air of deep melancholia, culminating in The Brothers (1967), where the pierrot mourns three skeletons buried one on top of the other in the earth. However, the bright colours of these pierrot works were cheerfully insistent and led Dillon along a more surrealist or fantastical vein. By 1967 he was referring to the series as “pierrots in poetic fantasies” (White, op. cit., page 92). After surviving a cardiac arrest in the late summer of 1967, he returned to the pierrot theme with great enthusiasm and by early 1968 was experimenting with cut-out shapes in the sky of these compositions. He described the process to his nephew in a letter: “It’s great fun trying to get the optical illusion of now one minute the shape is receding and now coming forward. It’s the difficulty that makes it worth while attempting – the result is decorative primarily, I suppose with an undercurrent for surrealism” (quoted in White, op. cit., page 93). Thus in Cut out, Drop out (1968, AIB collection), the pierrot contemplates a green and blue sky with ghostly clown-shaped clouds, whereas in Once Upon A Wavelength (1968), the clouds are shaped like women, swirling over the head of a female nude who looks towards a waving pierrot in the distance. In Beginnings the clouds are more amorphously shaped, suggestive of archaeological finds: flints, shells and bone shards. The pierrot stands in an attitude of contemplation, aware perhaps of his imminent return to the earth, wherein lies the clues to the beginning of time. The work almost certainly relates to another painting, Red Sky Wonder, exhibited at the Living Art Exhibition of 1968 (whereabouts unknown). Certainly the pierrot in Beginnings expresses with his clasped hands and balletic poise a sense of wonder and inspiration, that is in itself a marvel in a mature artist in his final years.

Gerard Dillon (1916-1971)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 20 September 2005 / 29

Published Estimate: €2,000-3,000

Price Realised: €2000

  • Signature: signed at base
  • Medium: terracotta bust with painted finish, on a marble plinth
  • Dimensions: 24 by 0cm., 9.5 by in.
  • Exhibited: Further information has come to light, which suggests this work may date to 1943. In a review of Dillon and O’Neill’s joint exhibition at the Contemporary Pictures Gallery, Dublin, art critic Thomas MacGreevy wrote: “there is no denying the touching and often humorous charm that characterises Gerard Dillon’s paintings and water-colours, and also a single experiment in sculpture included here” (Irish Times, 6 December 1943, p. 2).
  • Nine years older than her brother, Molly Dillon worked as a young girl in a cloth mill in Belfast. In the 1930s she moved to London, where she and Gerard shared a flat in Alexander Road, St John’s Wood. There she worked as a dressmaker and eventually bought a house in Abbey Road, London, the basement of which she rented to her brother. The Abbey Road house was a regular haunt of many artists and writers, not to mention Molly’s menagerie of stray cats and dogs, until London Borough Council ordered it demolished in 1963.

  • Brother of George Campbell RHA, Arthur Campbell studied by night at the Belfast College of Art, whilst working for the Belfast advertising firm, W. & G. Baird. He first exhibited at the RHA in 1939 and five years later held a joint show with his brother at the Mol Gallery, Belfast. In the same year both brothers produced Now in Ulster (1944), with articles, photographs and illustrations by Arthur Campbell. His first one-man show was held in 1950, organised by CEMA (Council for the Encouragement of Music and Art). Shortly afterwards the Ulster Museum purchased four works for their collection. Campbell frequently used a camera as a visual aid for his painting, and his photographs of old Dublin and Belfast were exhibited alongside his watercolours in a retrospective exhibition held by the Northern Irish Arts Council in 1984. (See Snoddy, page 68-9).
