A French landscape by Sir John Lavery is to be a highlight at the Whyte’s art sale in Dublin on March 14.  Whyte’s is conducting research into the location depicted in the work, once owned by the actress Maureen O’Sullivan  (1911-1998).  It is thought to be around Deauville, Normandy.  Lavery’s love affair with France began in the 1880′s. It was there he was first introduced to Hazel Martyn, the future Lady Lavery. In subsequent years the couple would return to France together.

The Whyte’s sale, at the RDS, will feature more than 150 works by artists including Patrick Hennessy, Louis le Brocquy, Cecil King, Robert Ballagh, Daniel O’Neill, Harry Kernoff, Sarah Purser, Erskine Nicol, Percy French and Maurice MacGonigal.
