Published Estimate: €5000-7000

  • Signature: signed, titled and dated on reverse; with Taylor Gallery exhibition card on reverse
  • Medium: gold and palladium leaf on linen
  • Dimensions: 48 by 32in., 122 by 81cm.
  • Provenance: Taylor Galleries, Dublin; The Collection of Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij
  • Exhibited: 'Patrick Scott Meditations Paintings', Taylor Galleries, Dublin, 9 May to 3 June, 2006, (illustrated in exhibition catalogue)
  • Whyte's are delighted to present a selection from the Collection of Liam O'Keefe-Ayudhkij this autumn. Liam O'Keefe-Ayudhkij, who was born in Dublin in 1945, relocated to Thailand at the age of eighteen and is renowned in both the country of his birth and in South East Asia for his contribution to business, arts and charitable organisations in Thailand. O'Keefe-Ayudhkij was a keen art collector and built up lasting friendships with Irish artists such as Patrick Scott. The meditative quality of Scott's oeuvre appears to have connected with him and his collection of early Scott canvases offered in this sale is testament to this. In Thailand O'Keefe-Ayudhkij's love of art manifested itself in his support of Asian artists, the setting up of 'Liam's Gallery' in Pattaya and a book written by him on Thai art. He was also director of the Phya Thai Palace Restoration Committee. After traveling Thailand from 1963 he settled in Bangkok where a surge in the local property market in the 1970s opened up employment opportunities particularly in the property care services industry. In 1989 he led the management buyout of the company he worked for and formed his own business, which he grew from the mid 1990s. By 2007 the company was employing 23,000 people. As an Irish expatriate O'Keefe-Ayudhkij was invited in 2009 to the Global Irish Economic Forum in Farmleigh. He was also a founder and director of the Irish Thai Chamber of Commerce and a past president of the Bangkok St. Patrick's Society among other accolades. Outside of the business arena O'Keefe was a true philanthropist and committed to many charitable organisations including Support the Children Foundation and the Bangkok Nursing Home Hospital. His obituary in the Irish Times this year noted, "He will be remembered for his business acumen, charity work, love of art and boundless enthusiasm."

SELF PORTRAIT, c.1970s
Tony O'Malley HRHA (1913-2003)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 1 October 2012 / 14

Published Estimate: €600-800

Price Realised: €600

  • Signature: signed with initials and indistinctly dated lower centre; with Fenton Gallery label on reverse
  • Medium: ink with wash on buff-coloured paper
  • Dimensions: 9.5 by 6.75in., 24 by 17cm.
  • Provenance: Fenton Gallery, Cork; The Collection of Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij
  • Whyte's are delighted to present a selection from the Collection of Liam O'Keefe-Ayudhkij this autumn. Liam O'Keefe-Ayudhkij, who was born in Dublin in 1945, relocated to Thailand at the age of eighteen and is renowned in both the country of his birth and in South East Asia for his contribution to business, arts and charitable organisations in Thailand. O'Keefe-Ayudhkij was a keen art collector and built up lasting friendships with Irish artists such as Patrick Scott. The meditative quality of Scott's oeuvre appears to have connected with him and his collection of early Scott canvases offered in this sale is testament to this. In Thailand O'Keefe-Ayudhkij's love of art manifested itself in his support of Asian artists, the setting up of 'Liam's Gallery' in Pattaya and a book written by him on Thai art. He was also director of the Phya Thai Palace Restoration Committee. After traveling Thailand from 1963 he settled in Bangkok where a surge in the local property market in the 1970s opened up employment opportunities particularly in the property care services industry. In 1989 he led the management buyout of the company he worked for and formed his own business, which he grew from the mid 1990s. By 2007 the company was employing 23,000 people. As an Irish expatriate O'Keefe-Ayudhkij was invited in 2009 to the Global Irish Economic Forum in Farmleigh. He was also a founder and director of the Irish Thai Chamber of Commerce and a past president of the Bangkok St. Patrick's Society among other accolades. Outside of the business arena O'Keefe was a true philanthropist and committed to many charitable organisations including Support the Children Foundation and the Bangkok Nursing Home Hospital. His obituary in the Irish Times this year noted, "He will be remembered for his business acumen, charity work, love of art and boundless enthusiasm."

  • Exhibited: ’Gerard Dillon’, Dawson Gallery, Dublin, 12 June – 2 July 1968, catalogue no. 20
  • In the original frame of the Dawson Gallery, Dublin. Encounter belongs to a series of works that Gerard Dillon painted from the mid 1960s that features the figure of Pierrot. First appearing in paintings such as The Brothers, circa 1965, Dillon’s Pierrot acted as an alter ego for the artist. James White (1) has suggested that the introduction of the Pierrot figure into Dillon’s work was partly in reaction to the untimely death of his brother Joe from a heart defect in 1962. Having recently suffered an illness related to his own weak heart, and fearing that he would soon follow his brother, Dillon began to paint tableaux of melancholy Pierrots contemplating death in imaginary landscapes. Although Pierrot was a manifestation of Dillon’s preoccupation with death, he could also express the artist’s other hopes and fears. In Encounter Pierrot reels from the sight of a figure – perhaps another Pierrot – who appears to be trapped in stone. While the cause of this fate is left ambiguous, the presence of two nuns who have emerged from a fortified convent implies that religion has had a role to play. Although Dillon had been raised by a devoutly Catholic mother, he soon became disillusioned with the Catholic Church and came to see organised religion as a threat to his personal liberty. Dillon’s decision to adopt Pierrot as his alter ego was not only a reference to the historical appearance of the figures of Harlequin and Pierrot in the work of seminal Modernist artists including Picasso, Braque and Miró, but also references his concealment of his ambiguous sexuality in the conservative Ireland of the time.
