    CENTENARY EXHIBITION OF MUCH LOVED ARTIST DAN O’NEILL

    Sunday, February 16th, 2020

    The centenary of the birth of artist Dan O’Neill will be marked at the Farmleigh Gallery in Dublin this summer.  This will be the first retrospective of Daniel O’Neill’s work since 1952 and includes many works from private collections unseen at exhibition for over 50 years. It will feature works by his friends and fellow painters Gerard Dillon, Colin Middleton, George Campbell, Nano Reid and others.  Born in Belfast, O’Neill had little orthodox training. He started painting with watercolours at the age of 15 and studied Italian renaissance painters at  Belfast Reference Library.  In 1945 he was taken up by the Dublin dealer, Victor Waddington and  several one man shows followed.  He visited France and moved to London in 1958.  From there his paintings were sent to the Waddington Gallery in Montreal and he showed at the Dawson Gallery in Dublin. In 1970 he exhibited in Belfast and his last two exhibitions were at the Dawson in 1971. He died in March 1974 aged 54.  The show will run from May 10 to July 24.

    GERARD DILLON PORTRAIT OF DAN O’NEILL AT WHYTE’S

    Friday, November 20th, 2015

    Gerard Dillon (1916-1971) - Portrait of Dan O'Neill (20,000-30,000).

    Gerard Dillon (1916-1971) – Portrait of Dan O’Neill (20,000-30,000).  UPDATE: THIS MADE 21,000

    Gerard Dillon’s 1952 portrait of his fellow artist Dan O’Neill graces the catalogue cover for Whyte’s sale of Important Irish Art in Dublin on November 30.  Based on the quality of works on offer and a new confidence in the salesrooms of Ireland Whyte’s remain optimistic about this sale of 161 lots.  The portrait, for instance, has been singled out twice for exhibitions at retrospectives in 1972 and 2003.  It is from a key point in Dillon’s career. By 1952 he had established himself as a painter and was closely involved in many of the exhibitions and organisations promoting and supporting visual art in Ireland North and South. He would go on to represent Great Britain in the Pittsburgh International exhibition in 1958 and the Guggenheim International, where he represented Ireland in 1958 and 1960.

    Dillon’s contemporaries also shine in this sale with works by Dan O’Neill, Nano Reid and Norah McGuinness.  There is a strong selection of works by William Conor showing aspects of life in Belfast and an iconic West of Ireland landscape by Paul Henry.  The sale will be held at the RDS and the catalogue is online.
