  • AN ARTWORK REDOLENT OF AN IRELAND THAT USED TO BE

    This genre painting by the mostly unknown 19th century artist Mary McGee is redolent of an Ireland that used to be. McGee was a student at the Dublin School of Art and worked predominantly around Drumcondra. Early in her career she exhibited a design for a fan mount at the International Exhibition in London and regularly exhibited at the RHA between 1874 and 1896. Woman Tending Flowers at a Cottage Door is signed and dated 1889 and estimated at 600-800. The oil on canvas is lot 35 at the timed online sale of Important Irish Art at James Adam which runs to March 24.
