  • The 'chief note' of Tangier was 'whiteness' according to RB Cunninghame Graham. In an essay on artists' haunts in 1909 he described a city that throughout the nineteenth century had provided writers and painters with an instant authentic experience of Muslim culture. (Footnote 1) A short sea crossing from the southernmost tip of Europe, its souks, mosques, and moonlit rooftop music and dancing formed an essential part of the texture of western European Orientalism. Graham's observations are confirmed by the series of small luminous oil sketches recently produced by his close friend, John Lavery, and reproduced to illustrate the article.(2) It took a painter to tell him what he was seeing and on several occasions he pays tribute to the artist - theirs was a lifelong friendship. Lavery had known the 'adventurer-laird of Gartmore' for at least eighteen years and recently, in company with The Times correspondent, Walter Harris, they had ridden across the desert together to visit the Sultan's court at Fez.(3)But it was the 'white houses, sands like snow, and, above all … dazzling white atmosphere' of the old coastal city overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar that enchanted them. In the maze of the Kasbah, 'the Arabs flitted to and fro, silent as shadows … they seemed like a population of uncloistered friars', said Graham in his introduction to the catalogue of Lavery's exhibition in 1904.(4) He could easily have been looking at the present picture. Under a vivid cobalt canopy the whitewashed houses glowed in the sunlight, and sharp shadows cut rectangles of pale blue, violet and ochre - their irregular shapes, performing an abstract theatre, that momentarily disorientated the western eye. Lavery first confronted this marquetry of intersecting planes in 1891 in a small study painted from the rooftop of the Hotel Continental, but it was only on subsequent visits that the secrets of narrow alleyways revealed themselves in the furtive glance from a doorway in the infamous Rue des Femmes, or the bustle of figures retreating up the hill from the souk at the call to prayer. This was the essential appeal of a setting vividly described by the Irish painter, Norman Garstin, when in 1897 he wrote to fellow artists, … that wall in front of you is homely whitewash, and steeped for a moment in a violet shade; a door opens and a rectangular slab of yellow white light from the opposite wall of the patio makes you blink and deepens the violet of the near wall; purple patches of shade stain the patio's red tiles with silhouetted pictures of fig leaves … (5)This was Lavery's quest in small studies that, like the present example, were painted not as preparations for larger works, but as ends in themselves. They were vivid snapshots of familiar corners that he would give to painter-friends like Alfred East - and others like Cunninghame Graham.(6) Such pictures are difficult to date precisely, although it is likely that A Street in Tangier, precedes the trip to Fez in 1906. Its specific location and the vantage point from which it was painted remain to be determined - although it is likely to show the winding street that leads up into the Kasbah.Throughout the years 1891-1920, when he visited Morocco regularly, Welsh, Scots, English, Canadian and French artists - Frank Brangwyn, Arthur Melville, Alfred East, James Wilson Morrice and Henri Matisse - all felt the rejuvenating effect of the 'white atmosphere' of Tangier, but it was Lavery, in small stunning pictures of the streets of the old city who definitively caught it. Prof Kenneth McConkeyApril 2014Footnotes:1 RB Cunninghame Graham, 'The Atmosphere of Morocco', in Alfred East introd., Sketching Grounds, 1909 (Studio Special Number), p.145. 2 The two had probably met on Lavery's first visit to the city in 1891, when according to Graham, he rode swiftly to the rescue after the painter's horse had bolted. In Lavery's account, he helped to rescue Graham from a group of belligerent Moors when he was haranguing them on his favourite topics - Free Speech and Democracy - neither of which they could remotely comprehend; see Walter Shaw Sparrow, John Lavery and his Work, n.d. [1912], (Kegan Paul, Trubner, Trench and Co), p.84.3 Kenneth McConkey, John Lavery, A Painter and his World, 2010 (Atelier Books), pp. 96-7.4 RB Cunninghame Graham, 'Introduction?', Cabinet Pictures by John Lavery, 1904 (Exhibition catalogue, Leicester Galleries, London), p.75 Norman Garstin, 'Tangier as a Sketching Ground', The Studio, vol 11, 1897, p. 178. 6 East, a student friend from the Haldane Academy in Glasgow, owned several small Moroccan street scenes.

  • Exhibited: Irish Art Exhibition, Brussels, May 1930;'Mainie Jellett Retrospective Exhibition', Hugh Lane Gallery Dublin, July - October 1962, catalogue no. 3;
  • Handwritten label verso reads: 34. / oil / 30 x 36 / A054 / Painting Brussels / Ref Abstract.In 1921 the young Irish artists Mainie Jellett and Evie Hone arrived in Paris to study with the Cubist master André Lhote. Jellett and Hone had studied in London under Walter Sickert where they absorbed important lessons in anatomy and classical portraiture, but this wasn't enough, they wanted to be 'modern' and in the early 1920s the terms 'Modern' and 'Cubist' were synonymous. Lhote was one of the first generation of Cubists, having shown in the second public exhibition of Cubism at the Salon des Indépendents of 1912. Following the Armistice in late 1918, cultural activity was renewed in Paris and Lhote opened an academy where a significant number of Irish artists were taught to paint along cubist principles. From work produced by Jellett at this time, we know that working from the nude model, seated portraits, and still-lifes were central to the curriculum. For Jellett and Hone this was too similar to the training they had received in London, so in 1922 they famously asked to be taken on as students by the painter Albert Gleizes, who had neither an academy nor an open studio. Gleizes had been developing a form of Cubist abstraction more in tune with Mondrian than Picasso and in 1920 published 'Du Cubisme et les moyens de le comprendre'(1), arguing that Cubism had been a search for a precise scientific method to replace the old scientific method of single point perspective, and that the essential elements of this new method are now known" .(2)Working together, the artists developed a system of 'translation and rotation' the early result of which, Jellett's Painting, 1923 (National GalIery of Ireland) was shown at the Dublin Painters Gallery that year to critical derision. Although on first glance Painting, 1923 is abstract, closer inspection of the format, composition, medium, and patterning relate it directly to early Renaissance religions icons like Cimabue's Maestà (c.1280). This was not co-incidental. Although much of the modern movement was fiercely secular, Gleizes, Jellett and Hone maintained a deeply Christian faith and sought to integrate Christian imagery into their modern vision. Through the mid-20s they worked on a series of 'Elements' paintings - largely abstract exercises in colour and form. In 1927-28 Jellett produced her major work Homage to Fra Angelico, a cubist interpretation of Angelico's Coronation of the Virgin (c.1435, Louvre, Paris). This is a mature work in Jellett's oeuvre demonstrating the successful cubist reduction of a form with traditional religious content, something we also see in the present work Painting,1930. An unusual feature of Homage to Fra Angelico and Painting, 1930 is the colour palette. In the case of Homage the colours range from mustard-green through to taupe and similarly Painting, 1930 utilises ochres and umbers reminiscent of brick burned by the sun. It is likely that the 'L'Exposition des Arts Décoratifs' in Paris in 1925 may have influenced this. This major exhibition of Art Deco included pavilions from around the Francophone world such as the colonies Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria and so the colours and light of North Africa would have permeated the visual plane. The source of the vertical, tripartite composition of Painting, 1930 can be compared to a typical quattrocento painting like Perugino's Madonna and Child with St John the Baptist and St Sebastian (1493) which could be considered an evolution from the earlier work by Cimabue. Certainly the composition of Painting, 1930 reflects the architectural setting within a vaulted space, with the Virgin and Child seated on a dais. Jellett would go on to further simplify this composition in one of her most important works The Madonna of Éire (1943, NGI) in which Saints Patrick and Brigid are seen either side of the Virgin. In these late works, Jellett combines influences from Celtic art and familiar images of the Virgin but produces a resolutely 'modern' image thereby making cubism and abstraction more palatable to a conservative audience.
