  • Exhibited: Exhibited:'The Watercolours and J.W. Carey' Emer Gallery, Belfast, 2 April - 11 March 2009
  • Born in Kilwarlin, Co. Down, Carey and his artist brother John began their careers as illustrators with Marcus Ward & Co., Belfast. A close friend and contemporary of William Percy French, Joseph was one of the original members of Belfast Ramblers’ Sketching Club and a lifelong friend of Hugh Thomson RI (1860-1920). His first recorded exhibition was with the Ramblers’ in 1888, when, alongside his brother he showed illustrations for In Southern Seas, an account of a trip to The Antipodes. It was never established whether they actually sailed to New Zealand but this exposure to maritime subjects was to become a recurring and lasting theme in Joseph’s oeuvre, lot 61, showing the ill-fated Titanic at Belfast docks, is testament to this. Carey began exhibiting with the Watercolour Society in 1893 and from 1915-1935 with the RHA. Following the failure of Marcus Wards’ in 1899 he was employed by John and Ernest Hanford and later with the brother of Hugh Thompson. Carey and Thompson specialised in illuminated addresses; miniature scenes in watercolour by Carey. Works by both can be found in the Armagh County Museum, The Ulster Museum, Ballycastle Museum and The Linen Hall Library, Belfast. Carey died in Belfast in 1937. The most prestigious commission of his career was a series of thirteen scenes from Belfast history painted on canvas for the Ulster Hall and completed in 1903.

  • Born in Kilkenny in 1839, William John Hennessy left Ireland for New York with his family in 1849. His early education was by private tutors and having begun life drawing from the age of 15, he soon entered the National Academy of Design, New York. By 1857 he was exhibiting successfully at the National Academy eventually becoming an academician in 1863. From his city studio he also worked successfully in the art of book illustration, illustrating the work of Longfellow, Tennyson, Whittier and other poets. Hennessy was a regular exhibitor at the National Academy and after moving to London in 1870, he became a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and also exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery, the New Gallery and the Royal Academy. He also showed eight works at the RHA between 1879 and 1907. While based in London he spent his summers in Normandy and was so taken with the area and its artistic influences that he moved there in 1875. He later toured Italy and returned to England to settle in Sussex in 1893 until the year of his death. See Snoddy, p. 243-244.

Gregor Grey (fl.1870s-1911)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 10 October 2011 / 80

Reserve: €5000

  • Signature: the former signed and dated lower left; the latter lower right
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 61 by 51cm., 24 by 20in.
  • Provenance: Provenance:Adam's, 29 March 2000, lot 45; Whence purchased by the present owner
  • Dimensions of the second work, 22 by 18ins.
    Gregor Grey was the son of Charles Grey RHA (c.1808-1892) and brother of the painters Alfred Grey RHA (1845-1926), Edwin Landseer Grey and James Grey and the engraver Charles Malcolm Grey. Gregor exhibited every year at the RHA from 1877-1911, averaging three to four exhibits a year - the most that a non-RHA member could possibly hope to have accepted. He also showed twice at the Oireachtas Art Exhibitions of 1906 and 1907. His works tended to be on a rustic theme and featured quaint, anecdotal titles. Grey earned - albeit unwittingly - some modicum of posterity when James Joyce included in Ulysses a character called Gregor Grey who was the designer of Gallaher's map and whose career was given "a leg up" by illustrating an advertisement.

THE MEETING OF THE WATERS COUNTY WICKLOW, 1802
THE MEETING OF THE WATERS COUNTY WICKLOW, 1802
Thomas Sautelle Roberts RHA (1760-1826)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 10 October 2011 / 84

Reserve: €8000

  • Medium: watercolour
  • Dimensions: 48 by 67cm., 19 by 26.2 5in.
  • Provenance: Provenance:Private collection, Australia
  • This watercolour looks down from the south-west to the famous beauty spot soon afterwards celebrated by Thomas Moore. The 3-arch stone bridge at the left, built in the mid-eighteenth century, carries the main road over the Avonbeg River close to its confluence with the Avonmore in the Vale of Avoca. A hay wagon is approaching the bridge, and the farm with outbuildings in the middle distance on the left has hay stacks. The caption to an aquatint of this view notes ‘on rising ground the seat of Captain Mills’, seen beyond woods on the right. This evidently refers to Abraham Mills of Cronebane, who as captain of a Yeomanry Corps was active in the suppression of the 1798 rebellion. There is a tower to the right of the house, and this, together with a cluster of buildings at the top of the zig-zag road in the distance, may be connected with the local copper workings.

ROSS CASTLE, KILLARNEY, COUNTY KERRY, c.1864
William McEvoy (fl. 1858-1880)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 10 October 2011 / 86

Reserve: €1000

  • Signature: signed lower left; with stamp of Brodie & Middleton [69 Long Acre, London] on reverse
  • Medium: oil on canvas
  • Dimensions: 30 by 64cm., 11.7 5 by 25in.
  • The RHA index of exhibitors lists two Killarney works exhibited in 1864, A Summer's Day at Killarney - the Long Range [£50-0-0], no. 12 and On the Upper Lake, Killarney [£25-0-0], no. 32. It is possible that the latter is a match for this scene. A prolific if now neglected artist of the Victorian era, McEvoy was a regular exhibitor at the RHA from 1858 to 1880. Up until 1865 his subjects were mostly Dublin and Wicklow landscapes; after this date he moved to London and English subjects predominate. Strickland notes that "...he is not heard of" after 1880.

  • Jordan, a graduate of the Dún Laoghaire School of Art in the late 1970s, has evolved stylistically from her early composed abstracts to darker figurative works to large classical landscapes. Deeply influenced by a scholarship in Berlin during the 1980's she soon became recognised as one of Ireland's renowned feminist Neo-Expressionists. In the early 1990s Jordan moved to France and since then has worked predominantly on landscape and domestic interiors. A founder member of the Visual Arts Centre, Jordan served on the committee of the Association of Artists in Ireland, Independent Artists and lectured at the National College of Art and Design from 1979-1983. She was made a member of Aosdána in 1990.
    In 1980 Eithne Jordan was awarded the Independent Artist’s Large Scale Painting Award.

IMAGE OF JAMES JOYCE, 1990
Louis le Brocquy HRHA (b.1916)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 10 October 2011 / 121

Reserve: €18000

  • Signature: signed and dated lower right
  • Medium: watercolour
  • Dimensions: 64 by 48cm., 25.2 5 by 18.7 5in.
  • Provenance: Provenance:Kerlin Gallery, Dublin; Where purchased by thwe present owner
  • Exhibited: Exhibited:'Louis le Brocquy, Paintings 1940-1990', Kerlin Gallery [Hibernian Fine Art], Dublin, January 1991
  • This watercolour of Joyce pertains to the artist's series of Portrait Heads executed c.1975-2005. According to Anne Crookshank in her text for the Kerlin exhibition catalogue, "...Le Brocquy has always been a great practitioner of watercolour and the thin washes of his early oils have much in common with this method... The irregular dabs of brilliant colour, purple, blue, and green, as non-descriptive as the tesserae of a Byzantine mosaic, build up the form of his heads with a tense, nervous immediacy which oil with its overlapping layers and opaque thickness never can achieve. The traces of paper left between each stroke, which enhance the brilliancy of the colours, and the gleam of whiteness, which glows through the paint, all help to create the truly magical effect of images coagulating in front of your eyes, coming alive, mediating, speaking, and ultimately returning to their own imaginative genius. He sometimes uses tissue paper to paint from, using it in such a way that the creases make caesuras in the strokes of paint. The results are deliberately induced accidents which help to keep the images at a distance from us, to give them reality only as paintings, not as descriptive portraits...The magic of the quietness of le Brocquy's oils is surpassed only by the excitement of his watercolours. They may be as still as the oils. But the sheer joy of their running, smudged, fragmented, clear colours brings vital reality to the spirit of his rediscovered genius. In this aspect of his work, le Brocquy has added a new dimension to his art. He has become a great colourist."

Marian Jeffares (1916-1986)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 10 October 2011 / 140

Reserve: €800

  • Signature: signed on label on reverse; inscribed with title and artist's name and bearing Lincoln Gallery framing label on reverse
  • Medium: oil on board
  • Dimensions: 52 by 69cm., 20.5 by 27in.
  • Provenance: Provenance:Family of the Artist
  • Born Marian Bragg in South London, Jeffares was a relation of William Henry Bragg and Sir Lawrence Bragg (co-winners of the 1915 Nobel Prize for Physics for their work on x-rays). She studied at Blackheath Art School and for five years at the Slade. She also studied design at Chelsea Polytechnic, and in 1939 took a degree in art history at the Courtauld Institute, studying under Sir Anthony Blunt. Shortly prior to WWII she married Ernest Holfenth, with whom she had a child, but the marriage barely outlasted the war. During the intervening years she worked at the War Office in London and taught art in Manchester. Her second marriage was to George Jeffares, an Irishman who lectured in languages at the Royal Naval College in Devon. Together they travelled to China for eighteen months, and Chinese scenes and subjects would preoccupy her throughout the early 1950s. In 1949 they settled in Kimmage, Co. Dublin and Jeffares began showing work at the IELA. In 1956 she had the first of fifteen works hung at the RHA and the following year, from an address in Rathgar, began showing at the annual Oireachtas art exhibitions. She also continued to exhibit in London, sending work to the Leicester Galleries in August 1957. Solo exhibitions were held with the Hendriks Gallery, Dublin, in 1956 and 1960. During the 1960s and '70s her subject matter focused - rather unfashionably - on social issues such as unemployment, women's rights, and Republican prisoners. She died in 1986, survived by two sons.
