  • Signature: exhibition label on reverse
  • Medium: charcoal on paper
  • Dimensions: 181 by 151cm., 71.2 5 by 59.5i
  • Exhibited: 'Knot: Alice Maher Draws from the Collection', Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery of Modern Art, Dublin, 21 April to 10 June 1999
  • Literature: This work was illustrated on the cover of Paul Durcan’s celebrated work, Greetings to Our Friends from Brazil: One Hundred Poems, Random House, 1999, UK, pp. 272. 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 (Bernice'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.

  • James Dixon was the first of the Tory Islanders to begin painting, spurred on by the example of Derek Hill, who first visited the island circa 1959. After watching Hill at work on a view of West End village, Dixon commented, "I think I could do better". Hill immediately offered the fisherman paints, paper and brushes; although the latter were politely declined in favour of brushes that Dixon constructed himself using donkey hairs. The majority of Dixon's subjects were local scenes and events, but he was also interested in events on a wider stage, such as the historic one-stop solo circumnavigation by Sir Francis Chichester in the Gipsy Moth IV, in 1967. The date given by Dixon refers to the date of execution, rather that the Chichester's voyage. Another version of the same subject, dated 1968, was exhibited at IMMA and Tate St Ives in 2000, catalogue no. 62.

  • After 1973 Tony O’Malley’s palette was influenced for many years by long visits to the Bahamas, where his wife Jane's family lived. Working in a nature based abstract idiom since the early sixties, his response to light was always a core aspect of his practice. Although work from the fifties and sixties, such as Ripe Cornfield in the Wind (1966), show earlier uses of bright colour, once visits to the Bahamas and later Lanzarote became habitual, he seemed to develop two palettes, one Cornish and Irish and the other Bahamian.

A local farmer told us an eel will develop in the bog waters far from any stream from a hair of a horse's tail, I'm sure it's not true but I believe the eel mystifies us human beings in general. I've painted many a picture of women comfortable in nature, it is a wish that we could be so relaxed without fear of being frightened or disapproved of and that we would be at one with nature's creatures as they would be with us.

Price Realised: €36000

  • Signature: signed and inscribed , J.B. Keane, centre right
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 168 by 92cm., 66 by 36.25in.
  • Provenance: Commissioned by the present owner
  • Literature: Robert Ballagh - Artists Designer, A Retropective, with essays by Ciaran Carty and Declan Kiberd, RHA, Dublin, ill., p. 62
  • Robert Ballagh’s practice is prolific and wide ranging as an artist but also as a designer (stamps, banknotes, set design and photography). His set designs include those for Becket’s Endgame, Wilde’s Salome and The importance of Being Earnest and Riverdance. After a brief flirtation with abstraction, earlier in his career, which he found somewhat vacuous as a language, he strove for a more literary, narrative, figurative and accessible art which would allow him to explore various aspects of art, life and politics. Indeed literature would provide Ballagh with structural devices which he would work visually. The structure of Flann O’Brien’s At Swim Two Birds is such an example where form is created within a form, an image within an image and where content and form are always interwoven. Ballagh has always been aware of art-making being a constructed practice, de facto artificial, allusive and contrived. Consequently he has incorporated visual puns and purposeful contrivances into his works, in some cases to attempt to break down barriers between art and life. His art practice is a continual dialogue between himself, the art of picture making and society. The portrait of John B.Keane is an example of this approach where he has the playwright stepping out of the constructed picture space and into a domestic or perhaps gallery space. Keane (1928 – 2002), of course, was one of Ireland’s best loved and popular writers and had a strong connection with the Irish people. The work was originally commissioned in 1992 by Groundwork who produced a number of Keane’s plays. The landscape is that of Ballybunion strand where the writer enjoyed walking regularly. Ballagh also has the wispy clouds which drift out of the inner picture to reflect the author’s comparison of his turbulent emotions to fast moving clouds. Another device, often deployed by the artist is to work his signature into the painting as an integral element rather than as the usual post painting gesture. This can be seen on the theatre programme jutting out of the playwright’s left jacket pocket. There is a study for this painting John B. Keane – The Kerryman (1992) which, while somewhat different in composition, is based on the same principle of stepping forward to his audience out of the picture frame. This art/life device is also used in a poster Ballagh made for The Joyce Summer School James Joyce on O’Connell Street (1991) which has the novelist walk out of the frame indicating the ongoing relevance of his work to future generations. Robert Ballagh was the subject of a major retrospective of his work in 2006. His work is in many public collections including: The Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery, National Gallery of Ireland, Albrecht Dürer House, Nuremberg, Ulster Museum, Trinity College, Dublin, The Gordan Lambert Collection and IMMA. He is also represented in many private collections at home and abroad. Professor Liam Kelly Belfast February 2009

  • Born in Canada James George le Jeune's father was a musician of Anglo-French extraction, whilst his mother was Irish. When he was just two years old his family moved to Brittany, where he spent his childhood. He was sent to boarding school in England but returned to France to study art in Paris. Further studies followed at Heatherley's Academy in London, Byam Shaw and the Art Student's League in New York. Back in London he also studied architecture and, after a period serving with the British Army during the Second World War, he worked as an architect firstly in London and then in Dublin, to where he moved in 1950. During these years he exhibited his paintings on occasion. He showed at the ROI in 1948, the RSA in 1950, and the RHA from 1951 almost annually until his death. In 1951 he turned to painting full-time. Victor Waddington gave him his first solo show in 1954. He also exhibited at the Little Theatre, Brown Thomas, and with the WCSI. His work is represented in the collections of the NGI, McKee Barracks, Dublin and the Crawford Gallery in Cork among others. The Dublin Magazine once commented that he showed a certain mastery in the handling of crowd scenes (see Snoddy, p. 344). This is clearly exhibited in this work which depicts Dublin's Upper Baggot Street. The animated use of paint, using short wide brush strokes, evident here, is a characteristic feature of his style. Le Jeune's studio was located close to this scene, on Baggot Lane, and he was a regular visitor to Searson's, the local public house which is still in operation today.

  • El Palo, a small fishing village located outside Málaga, was the source of inspiration for many of Campbell’s canvases from the early fifties onwards. Its landscape and its people stimulated a new strand in the artist’s oeuvre. In this work Campbell has decided to focus his attention on the local children from El Palo depicting them with their characteristically dark features in contrast to the pastel tones of the canvas. The three figures portrayed do not appear connected to the viewer; but rather, are set apart, perhaps sensing their difference or that of the artist observing them. Notwithstanding their guarded approach to him, Campbell still manages to sensitively capture their youth, naivety and their childlike curiosity with his subtle tones and delicate application of paint.

  • George Campbell’s love affair with the Spanish way of life, its people and their rituals and rhythms was first ignited during a flamenco performance he attended of the Carmen Amaya troupe of dancers at London's Princess Theatre in the late 1940s. 1951 marked the artist’s inaugural visit to Spanish soil and the connection he made there was to have a lasting effect on both his style and subject matter, until his death in 1979. Following his first exposure to the Iberian Peninsula Campbell forged an instant bond with the South of the country and returned annually to the small fishing village of El Palo, outside Málaga, the birth place of his Malaguenian counterpart, Pablo Picasso. Spanish Street Party is an exemplary work from the artist’s oeuvre. Here he marries the deeply religious Semana Santa procession with the Spanish love of la fiesta. This fusion of the pious, with the gaiety of a celebratory atmosphere, is mirrored in his palette. The sombre blues and browns are lifted by the energetic reds and the vigorous yellows, which draw the eye towards the background of the canvas to the image of the cathedral, emphasising the sacred nature of the occasion. The Semana Santa procession, a precisely structured event, full of rules and symbolism seems to have captivated Campbell who recorded dutifully their symbols and codes in many of his works. Here he depicts the religious headdress and flags of the Brotherhood, exhibited as a sign of mourning for the suffering Christ, the imagen, a sacred sculpture of a biblical scene, elevated on a high stand and the priest, with his clerical collar heightened in white in the foreground. Within these Easter processions there is a consistent element of musicality. Campbell himself was a talented guitarist, recognised as an equal of the Flamenco musicians of Andalucía and this is reflected in his canvas. His fluid application of paint in the ‘flattened’, solid blocks of colour, are rhythmically balanced with the forceful dynamic brush strokes at the heart of the celebrations. These attract the eye and amplify the sounds and movement within the spectacle. The cultural links between catholic Spain and Ireland are undeniable but Campbell’s canvas also reflects both countries’ mutual love of collective celebration. Campbell’s emphasising of these cultural bonds has been recognised through the years; firstly by the naming of a street in the town of El Palo in his honour, secondly, his ‘knighthood’ as a Commander with the Insiginia and Privileges of the Order of the Merito Civile, in 1978 and lastly, the establishment of the George Campbell Travel Award by the Spanish Cultural Institute in Dublin and the Arts Councils of both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in 1980.
