  • Richard Thomas Moynan (1856 -1906) was born in Dublin. Moynan originally set out to study medicine, but opted for a career in the arts shortly before his final examinations. He enrolled at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art in 1879 and found quick success by winning both the Taylor and Cowper prizes. In 1883 Moynan attended Academie Royale des Beaux Arts in Antwerp along with Roderic O'Conor and Henry Allen. He studied there until moving to Paris in 1885 to study at Academie Julien . By the late 1880s Moynan had returned to his native Dublin to exhibit his paintings, and was elected to the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1890.This painting and lot 7, Bridget With A Book And Toys, are typical of his 1890s genre works, which often included his daughter Bridget as a model. It was around this time that Moyan produced some of his masterpieces including Military Manoeuveres and Tug of War.

  • O'Kelly emigrated to New York in 1895, where he had impressive connections and his work was highly regarded. Yet his late work betrays a nostalgic relationship with his political and artistic past. He returned to Ireland in 1926, at the age of 73, still pressing his case for the establishment of a national school of painting. During this time, he wrote regularly to his nephew, James Herbert, back in New York. In this correspondence, he describes how, in Ireland, he first established himself in Cashel, which he described as 'a very ancient place with much interest but the sleepiest, quietest place you can imagine'. Here he lived a life of 'simplicity itself'. He went on to say: 'my two subjects are the ancient ecclesiastical buildings on the Rock of Cashel (of which he executed seven paintings), and Holycross Abbey. In an effort to secure commissions, O'Kelly called on the Archbishop of Cashel. When the Archbishop - 'a very well fed looking man with little inclination for art'- declined to purchase, O'Kelly pronounced 'a very low opinion of His Grace.' The Dean of Cashel, on the other hand, responded positively, commissioning a Rock of Cashel - possibly this painting. This sojourn culminated in an exhibition in Dublin, in Combridge's, Grafton Street, before he left Ireland for his final visit to Brittany, before returning to America. Professor Niamh O'Sullivan

  • Signature: signed lower left
  • Medium: watercolour
  • Dimensions: 9 x 12½in. (22.86 x 31¾cm)
  • Provenance: Gift from the artist to Professor John Earls;Thence to Irene Calvert MP;Thence by descent to the present owner
  • It was following, and partly as a result of this commission, that the artist was commissioned to paint the then Governor of Northern Ireland, LordWakehurst. Irene Calvert was an enthusiastic patron of Blackshaw and other young artists in Northern Ireland during the 1950s. Irene Calvert (1909-2000) was a Northern Irish politician and economist. Bornin Belfast, as Lillian Irene Mercer Earls, she studied at Methodist College, Belfast. She studied economics and philosophy at Queen's University, Belfast. In 1941 she was appointed Chief Welfare Officer for Northern Ireland, immediately having to organise care for a flood of wartime evacuees. In 1944, she contested a by-election for the Queen's University Belfastconstituency. She was unsuccessful but stood again in the Northern Ireland general election, 1945, as an independent (non-party) candidate, and on thisoccasion succeeded in taking a seat at Stormont. She held the seat until she stood down at the 1953 election. In Parliament, she avoided the traditional Unionist versus Nationalist arguments, which she regarded as a distraction from the real task of socialreform, including the passage of the Education Act, 1947. In her resignation speech, she did however question whether the Northern Irish economy couldthrive while the partition of Ireland continued. In 1950 Calvert began working at the Ulster Weaving Company as an economist, and having successfully helped build up their institutional sales was appointed a managing director. In 1956 she was invited to become a group chairman at the Duke of Edinburgh's Study Conference on Industry. She also served on the Belfast City Chamber of Commerce, becoming its first - and, to date, only - woman president in 1965-1966. She also served on Queen's University's Senate and Board of Curators, and was active in the Irish Association. In 1964, she worked as an executive manager with Great Southern Hotels, a subsidiary of CIE, the Irish Transport Company, with whom she worked until early 1970. She retired to Dublin where she was an active supporter of the Irish Labour Party until her death in 2000.

  • Literature: 'Living with Art:David Hendriks'', edited by Gordon Lambert (1985), full page illustration p.46.
  • The Witch of Mullaghderg was painted in 1975 and formed part of the Westerness Series in which Colin Middleton revisited many of the ideas and themes that had dominated earlier periods of his work. After the very international vision of the Wilderness Series that preceded it, inspired by Middleton's travels to Spain, Australia and South America, the Westerness paintings found their inspiration in Irish literature, landscape, myth and legend.Within these works Middleton integrated certain elements of the surrealist playfulness of the Wilderness paintings, their combination of creating drama within a shallow area while suggesting a vast empty space behind, and the carefully prepared boards on which he had begun to paint. The conception of the work appears to be quite different, however; the title of the Westerness series is drawn from Finnegan's Wake and throughout the relatively small cycle of paintings, Middleton returns to the female archetype to explore ideas around the duality of human nature, the difficulty of rationalising the co-existence of the material and spiritual within our lives, as well as our own relationship to the landscape we live in, both its physical terrain and its power in myth and memory.In the present painting, the highly abstracted figure of the witch dominates the painting entirely, the highly abstracted folded material of her long train reaches across the picture space as she appears to hover, barely touching the ground, offering a playing card towards the viewer. Although The Witch of Mullaghderg does refer to a specific place, it has less sense of the landscape or the natural world than some of the other Westerness works and its ambiguity and playfulness recalls Middleton's earlier surrealist paintings. Dickon Hall, Belfast, November 2014.Dickon Hall is a Belfast based art dealer and writer. Since completing an MA at the Courtauld Institute of Art he has curated numerous exhibitions in London, Belfast and Dublin. He has published monographs on Colin Middleton and Nevill Johnson and has written extensively on twentieth century and contemporary art.

The three rings are mounted on a textured glazed stoneware base in varying shades of blue, representing Dublin Bay and the River Liffey on the banks of which the city was founded. The yellow streaks through the base represent the ever changing sands of time.The piece is presented on a marble pillar with sculpted designs including motifs for the Dublin Millennium and The Papal Visit.An extremely important and unique example of 20th Century Irish silversmithing of incomparable value.

  • Provenance: Purchased from artist through Derek Hill, 1967; Private collection
  • The Irish artist and primitive landscape painter James Dixon was born on Tory Island, County Donegal, and aside from the occasional visit to the mainland, remained on the island all his life. He devoted himself to fishing and small farming. He only started painting at the age of 72, after seeing a painter - Derek Hill - at work on a landscape painting. Hill encouraged Dixon and provided him with oils and other art materials, although Dixon made his own paintbrushes from donkey's hair. In due course it was Hill who introduced Dixon's artworks to the art world, thus helping Dixon to become an important figure in the history of twentieth-century Irish painting. His painting is seen as an excellent example of Outsider Art, and was the subject of a major exhibition at The Irish Museum of Modern Art - Two Painters: Alfred Wallis and James Dixon, IMMA, Dublin, September - November 1999.
