    An ethereal le Brocquy work entitled Being (80,000-100,000) highlights the sale by Whyte’s at the RDS on November 30.  From around the middle of the 1990’s to 2005 the artist returned to his earlier preoccupation with the Presence series in a body of work called human images, of which this is one.  There is a strong selection in a catalogue of 161 works. Whyte’s recent auctions have proved to be hugely successful and the auction house say that this confirms growing demand for quality pieces at the top end of the market.

    The catalogue is online.  Here is a small selection: (See post on antiquesandartireland.com for November 20, 2015)

    TIMELY LONDON VIEW FOR MORGAN O’DRISCOLL’S IRISH ART

    Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

    Given the strength of sterling and the weakness of the euro the timing for Morgan O’Driscoll’s London viewing of his Irish and International Art auction at the RDS in Dublin on April 20 is good.  What better time to introduce a new English audience to Irish art and artists – the three day viewing is at La Galleria in Pall Mall on April 13, 14 and 15 – than when the euro is on the floor?  Estimates, as in most latter day auctions in Ireland, are reasonable. Here is a small selection:
