    IMPORTANT IRISH ART AT JAMES ADAM

    Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

    Portrait of Maria Susanna Ormsby by Hugh Douglas Hamilton RHA (1734-1808)  UPDATE: THIS MADE 26,000 AT HAMMER

    The Spring Sale of Important Irish Art at James Adam in Dublin on March 27 will offer a range of work from the 18th century to the present day. One of the earliest is a rediscovered portrait by Hugh Douglas Hamilton, arguably this country’s most important portraitist, of Maria Susanna Ormsby, daughter of the MP for Sligo William Ormsby.  This painting re-emerged in the dispersal of the Harlech Collection in Wales a year ago and is now estimated at 25,000-35,000.

    A Paul Henry, Looking Towards Achill from the East of Achill Sound, is estimated at 40,000-60,000. There are two large works by Tony O’Malley and two by John Shinnors from  very different periods.  The mid 20th century Northern Irish School is well represented by artists like Colin Middleton and Dan O’Neill which William Conor’s 1923 work Water Buckets is estimated at 20,000-30,000.  The catalogue is online and features 123 works.
