  • An Evening Walk in Maryland When my father was a tired old man, his pride in the Republic gone, every evening he went for a walk in Maryland, stood by the canal or stopped at the dry fountain in James’s Street. By way of crumbling lane and convent wall, gothic spire and brewery chimney, he ambled as far as his last glimpse of the Liffey before it disappeared to appear again at Islandbridge and Chapelizod. When my father became a tired old man, coping with the scarcity of divine help, each night he emptied his pocket of its hoard of coins and his betting docket for the horse and jockey that tumbled in the final furlong. Gerard Smyth From The Mirror Tent, Dedalus Press, 2007 A manuscript copy of Smyth’s poem accompanies this lot. With thanks to Gerard Smyth, Dedalus Press, and Poetry Ireland. This painting depicts Stevens Lane, Dublin, which runs between the Guinness Brewery and St. Patrick’s and Dr. Steevens’ Hospitals on the west. The nearby Maryland is a Dublin Corporation housing development built off Cork Street in 1932, a Marian year, hence the name.

  • Literature: Exhibition review by Dorothy Walker, Sunday Times, 2 May 1999, illustrated
  • Alice Maher has long been interested in myths, fairy tales and childhood games, and frequently explores these themes in her work. This drawing belongs to a series of four monumental pieces entitled Coma Berenices (Berenice’s hair), which the artist produced in response to a residence at the Hugh Lane Gallery. In 1998 Maher was invited to curate an exhibition of works on paper from the permanent collection at the Hugh Lane. After several months of sifting through the collection, she selected a diverse group of thirty-nine drawings and watercolours ranging from George Chinnery to Jack Yeats. She was particularly inspired by two works: Paul Klee’s Anima errante and Keith Henderson’s Sleep, works which are, in Maher’s words ‘from the opposing poles of art history’ (Alice Maher, quoted in the Hugh Lane exhibition catalogue, 1999, p. 58). Dorothy Walker, reviewing the exhibition, wrote of Maher’s four drawings: Alice Maher is the superb draughtswoman of the age in this medium. Her huge charcoal drawings of women’s hair are feats of dense, obsessive drawing unequalled in contemporary practice… The drawings repeat Klee’s labyrinthine theme in taking the errant line into rich, dense coils of hair. Her obsession with women’s hair is a feminist stance, illustrating how the “crowning glory” represents women’s identity… The drawings are superb: the fine lines represent as closely as possible the reality of the subject in scale and appearance, while retaining the intrinsic character of a drawing… Coma Berenices relates to the myth of Beatrice, who sacrificed her hair to the gods for the return of her husband from the wars. She was rewarded for what was seen as this supreme sacrifice by being placed in the skies as a constellation of stars, where she shines to this day.

Price Realised: €13000

  • Signature: signed lower right
  • Medium: acrylic on canvas
  • Dimensions: 107 by 168cm., 42 by 66in.

  • In 1968 Ballagh was commissioned by Sir Basil Goulding to paint a series of large murals for Goulding’s Fitzwilton offices in Wilton Terrace, Dublin. The murals, which are now in the collection of TCD, were composed of abstract fields of colour resembling countries on a map. The random dispersal of the areas of colour, originally conceived of as ink blot drawings, suggested the arbitrary nature of so many national and political boundaries. Ballagh went on to create a series of these ‘maps’, which won an honourable mention in the under-25 section at the 1968 Living Art exhibition. In 1973 Ballagh incorporated similar maps into his designs for two Irish postage stamps commemorating the centenary of the World Meteorological Organisation.

  • Hand woven by Benito Hernandez y Hermanos, Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico. Patrick Scott’s tapestry designs are a highly significant part of his oeuvre. The designs vary according to the tapestry technique employed, taking into account attributes such as the depth of pile and method of tufting. Thus, as Dorothy Walker once noted, ‘his tapestry is no mere transference of his paintings to a woollen surface’ (Irish Arts Review, 1984, pp. 18-9). Scott has also embraced a rainbow-coloured palette of colours for his tapestry designs. He has worked with the famed Aubusson firm of Tabard Frères et Soeurs, in addition to the Irish firm V’Soske Joyce in Galway and individual weaver designers such as Alice Roden and Leonora Fowler. In 1980 he was introduced to a family of weavers in Mexico, resulting in a series of rugs, wall hangings and tapestries being produced over the following four years. Peter Lamb has described this series as follows: The Oaxacan weavers of Mexico operate a cottage industry version of Aubusson. They also produce a fine product, but one which is much looser and more rustic in character. Unlike both V’Soske Joyce and Tabard Frères et Soeurs, which both use chemical dyes, the Oaxacans use mostly animal and vegetable dyes, particularly indigo and cochineal, which are locally produced. Scott worked with Benito Hernandez, a Zapotec Mexican, and his extended family in the weaving village of Teotitlan del Valle from 1981 to 1984 and some of the work was subsequently exhibited in the Museo del Arte Contemporaneo in the city of Oaxaca.
