Painted in delicate sepia wash, it depicts a detail from the east pediment of the Parthenon (437-432 BC), acquired by the British Museum from Lord Elgin in 1816. The horse depicted is one of four leading the goddess Selene’s chariot, signifying the break of day. Photographs of the original marble are included with the lot. Luke most probably studied the Selene horse whilst in London, although plaster casts are also found in many academic collections, including that of the Crawford College of Art in Cork.

He exhibited at the Royal Academy, as well as with the London Group, the New English Art Club and Leicester Galleries. Two paintings of his are in the collection of the Ulster Museum.

THE LEGEND AND THE SEA, c.1956
THE LEGEND AND THE SEA, c.1956
Patrick Hennessy RHA (1915-1980)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 29 September 2008 / 5

Published Estimate: €20000-30000

Price Realised: €32000

  • Signature: original inscribed label on reverse
  • Medium: oil on canvas laid on board
  • Dimensions: 105 by 204cm., 41.5 by 80.5in.
  • Provenance: The artist's estate; `Pictures by Patrick Hennessy RHA and Henry Robertson Craig RHA', Christie's, South Kensington, 10 July 1986, lot 35; Fine Irish Paintings and Drawings, Christie's, Belfast, 31 May 1989, lot 491; Whence purchased by Dr McKee
  • Exhibited: Thomas Agnew and Sons, London, 10 October to 3 November 1956, catalogue no. 22; `Patrick Hennessy', Hendriks Gallery, Dublin, 9 November to 2 December 1972, catalogue no 18.
  • The year The Legend and the Sea was painted, 1956, was a major year in Patrick Hennessy’s life. He, along with Harry Robertson Craig, was a major player in the opening of Ritchie Hendrik’s Gallery, he visited France on painting trips, in London he had a solo exhibition at Agnew’s of Bond Street and he exhibited a painting at the summer exhibition of the Royal Academy, London. He was certainly reaching the heights of his profession. The Legend and the Sea contains two of the artist’s favourite motifs that reappear in his works: the dead tree and conch shells. In this painting, with the low horizon and great dramatic sky, the beached conch shells lead us along the sunlit beach to the lighthouse in the deep centre ground, in direct contrast with the darker right hand side, where the clump of trees painted in a dramatic brooding style gives a strong illusion of depth to the whole composition and at the same time depicts a salient example of coastal erosion. This mysterious moody work dates from a period in Hennessy’s career when he was collecting the various labels imposed by the critics and consequently in the thoughts of the general public: Surrealism, Photo Realism, and Magic Realism. Each label surfaced at various times in an attempt to slot Hennessy into a category, but they never seemed to stay with him. He continued to complete highly finished paintings on an array of subject matter for a loyal group of collectors. However, few of his paintings in his latter years up to his death in 1980 were as dramatic in size or content as The Legend and the Sea. Kevin A. Rutledge September 2008

PORTRAIT OF LINDY GUINNESS, c.1965
PORTRAIT OF LINDY GUINNESS, c.1965
Duncan Grant (1885-1978)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 29 September 2008 / 6

Published Estimate: €5000-7000

Price Realised: 

  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 61 by 51cm., 24 by 20in.
  • Provenance: Purchased from Christie's by Jonathan Riley, Emscote Lawn; Private collection, Dublin; Dickon Hall Fine Art, Belfast; Whence purchased by Dr McKee in 1998
  • Literature: Francis Spalding, Duncan Grant: A Biography, Chatto and Windus, London, 1997, page 434
  • Accompanied by a manuscript card from the sitter, Lindy Guinness, Marchioness of Dufferin and Ava, who notes, “It is a portrait of me and I can remember him painting it in London in the 1960s”. Lindy Guinness, known as Lady Dufferin, was born in 1941, the daughter of Loel Guinness and his second wife, Lady Isabel Manners. She first met Duncan Grant when she was seventeen and was encouraged by him to paint, subsequently studying at Chelsea School of Art and the Slade, and with Oskar Kokoschka in Salzburg. Lindy continued to visit Charleston regularly to paint with Grant until his death in 1978. She and Grant painted each other regularly and she was instrumental in encouraging the important 1964 retrospective exhibition of his work at Wildenstein, London. Lindy Guinness now exhibits regularly at the Ava Gallery on the grounds of her home at Clandeboye, Bangor. Duncan Grant was a central figure in the Bloomsbury Group and along with his partner, Vanessa Bell, her sister Virginia Woolf and his brief loves Maynard Keynes and Lytton Strachey, defined the British arts world of the pre-war period. This mantel was taken up by a younger generation of post-war Pop artists, including David Hockney, who was given early support and encouragement from Sheridan Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood, 5th Marquess of Dufferin and Ava, and husband of Lindy Guinness. Lord Dufferin was co-owner of the Kasmin Gallery, which opened in 1963 and showed the works of Hockney and Lucien Freud, who was married briefly to Lord Dufferin’s sister, Caroline Blackwood. After their own marriage in 1964, Lord and Lady Dufferin became central figures of the London art scene in the 1960s.

Price Realised: €2000

  • Signature: signed lower right; original exhibition label on reverse

  • Exhibited: 'T. P. Flanagan', Hendriks Gallery, Dublin, 12 September to 3 October 1981, catalogue no. 13
  • T. P. Flanagan was commissioned by the Earl of Belmore at Castlecoole to record his family home through a series of paintings and purchased many paintings from the artist as a consequence. This is one of those paintings from the Roughra series of 1981. The artist writes of this in a letter, a copy of which accompanies the painting: “Morning 2 is not of County Fermanagh, but of an area in the hills above Killybegs in Co. Donegal. I have a studio there, which I had added on to an old cottage / farmhouse which we bought in 1967 and where I painted a lot of my pictures and still do. In the ‘80s I turned my attention to the immediate surroundings of moor and bog land – fortunately as it turned out since most of the country in Morning 2 is now in government afforestation. The few sheep farmers living near me have started selling off for such schemes... The picture is part of a series in oils and watercolours most of which is now in private collections. The actual town land is called Roughra. One other called Roughra Morning is in one of the banks’ collections”.

THE EIGHT FIDDLERS
THE EIGHT FIDDLERS
John B. Vallely (b.1941)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 29 September 2008 / 10

Published Estimate: €18000-22000

Price Realised: €21000

  • Signature: signed with initials lower right
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 61 by 76cm., 24 by 30in.
  • Provenance: Ross's, Belfast, 12 June 2002, lot 202; Whence purchased by Dr McKee
  • John B. Vallely was born in Armagh 1941 and is now the city’s most acclaimed resident artist. In 1959 he enrolled at the Belfast College of Art, where his teacher, the late Tom Carr, was greatly impressed: “He was the most remarkable student I ever had. He drew with such assurance and maturity. His sketch-book was such quality on outings that I wanted to take a few pages out of it and keep them for myself”. Vallely went on to further study at Edinburgh Art College, and during his early years travelled widely in search of subjects. However, his work has returned time and again to those local subjects that have most engaged him: traditional Irish culture, in particular sport and music. He is a skilled musician himself and forty years ago founded the Armagh Pipers Club, still in existence today. However, it is his paintings for which he is most renowned, and which are highly sought after by collectors at home and abroad. In the words of one of his earliest patrons, Gladys MacCabe, Vallely “has conquered his idiom and enriched it with all the technical means which his instinct suggests; thick impasto, mixtures of tones, glazing, shading. Often his colours emit vivid glows – his canvases drip with light and are encrusted with warmth” (1966). His work has regularly been exhibited throughout Ireland and in Britain, Italy and the USA.

ACROBATS, 1972
ACROBATS, 1972
Colin Middleton MBE RHA (1910-1983)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 29 September 2008 / 11

Published Estimate: €3000-5000

Price Realised: €2300

  • Signature: signed in monogram lower right; inscribed, dated and signed again on reverse
  • Medium: pen and ink with watercolour
  • Dimensions: 77 by 58cm., 30.5 by 23in.
  • Provenance: Caldwell Gallery, Belfast; Irish Paintings and Drawings, Christies, Belfast, 27 October 1989, lot 233; Whence purchased by Dr McKee.
  • This unusually large and ambitious drawing, relating closely to a painting of the same title, epitomises many of Middleton’s concerns in the early 1970s. His reconciliation of the images of the landscape with the female form, both visually and symbolically, became wittier and more sexually charged around this period. One could view it as a shift away from Middleton’s interest in Henry Moore and towards a renewed looking at Picasso. The conceit of the acrobats encourages Middleton’s selective re-arrangement and distortion of the human form, with the two acrobats’ bodies rising layered and suggesting the rising of a landscape towards the sun.

It depicts one of the real life inspirations for the play, Raymond Stone, proprietor of Stone’s bicycle shop, which was originally situated in Cromac Square and later moved to the Lower Ormeau Road. Raymond was the last generation of a famous Belfast bicycle family, whose most famous bicycle was the ‘Stone Special’ – a bicycle with exaggerated angles on its frame. Another relative, ‘Pebble’ Stone, had a shop in East Belfast. The portrait of Raymond was painted from life in his shop. He died shortly after it was completed.

  • Born in Gifu, Japan, Makiko Nakamura studied art in Kyoto and Nagoya. She worked initially in film editing before concentrating on painting. In 1996 she moved to Paris, where she studied print making at Atelier Contre Point and the following year took up a residency at Cite International Des Arts. From 1997-98 she was artist in residence in the fine art department, University of Pennsylvania. In 1999, attracted by the prospect of visiting the home town of Samuel Beckett, whose writings have greatly influenced her work, Nakamura came to Dublin. Since then she has had solo exhibitions at the Fenderesky Gallery, Belfast, Peppercanister Gallery, Dublin and the Ashford Gallery at the RHA, Dublin. Aidan Dunne has written of her work: “The smoky, burnished, metallic surfaces of her paintings bear traces of overall grid patterns and other methodical markings, half there, half already gone. The absolute precision of her method and the sureness of her instinct, plus the sombre presence of her work, mark her out as an artist of exceptional quality”.

Other notable Australian solo shows have been held at the Rex Irwin Gallery (1978), Robin Gibson Gallery (1992) and the Australian Galleries (2000). During the early eighties he was a frequent exhibitor in group shows at the Taylor Galleries in Dublin; they also gave him his first Irish solo exhibition in 1981, and a further five solo shows with Taylor’s have ensued, most recently in 2003. He divides his time between Ireland and Australia and is represented in prestigious collections in both countries, including the National Gallery of Victoria, AIB, and the Waterford Municipal Gallery, as well as the Institute of Modern Art in Chicago. A slightly smaller version of this subject, Island on Kenmare River Co. Kerry, also in a diptych format, was exhibited at the Taylor Galleries in 1988.
