    LUMINOUS HARRY CLARKE PANEL AT O’DRISCOLL SALE

    Saturday, October 21st, 2023
    Titania and Bottom, a 1922 stained glass panel by Harry Clarke. UPDATE: THIS MADE 160,000 AT HAMMER

    Harry Clarke, Paul Henry, Sir John Lavery and Sean Scully are among the leading Irish artists heading up Morgan O’Driscoll’s online art auction which gets underway on the evening of October 24. Major art of this calibre by established artists does not come cheap and estimates for these four range from €50,000 to €150,000. Any one of them would enormously enhance a serious collection of Irish art.

    Secret Garden, Ballinaboy by Kenneth Webb. UPDATE: THIS MADE 19,000 AT HAMMER

    In a dazzling and vivid stained glass panel Clarke delves into a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream featuring Titania and Bottom dated 1922.  In a walnut and tortoiseshell cabinet by James Hicks it recreates a strange and marvellous world composed of fragments of transformed reality. Once in the collection of Ann and Gordon Getty, which realised more than $150 million (€143 million) across ten auctions at Christie’s last year, it is estimated at €100,000-€150,000.

    There is a similar estimate on Paul Henry’s atmospheric Cottages on Achill Sound which depicts three traditional thatched cottages in a path leading towards the seashore. Most of Henry’s work around Connemara and Mayo includes mountains. in this one the artist has turned away from the land and faces towards the ocean. The Beach, Evening Tangier by Sir John Lavery dates to 1920 and is estimated at €80,000-€120,000.  Scully’s Barcelona dates to 1998.  The estimate for this watercolour on paper is €50,000-€70,000.  These are atmospheric works with their own aura. So is Three Figures by Dan O’Neill, an evocative moonlit scene with three women, their heads covered by scarves, and estimated at €25,000-€35,000. Moonlight features in Connemara by George Campbell, a nightime view, and in Full by Elizabeth Magill.

    Studio Table by William Crozier. UPDATE: THIS MADE 14,000 AT HAMMER

    In sharp contrast is Studio Table by William Crozier, bright with the artist’s palette of colours, and Harry Kernoff’s Madonna with Faun and Doves, inspired by religious icons.  Louis le Brocquy, Jack B Yeats, Evie Hone, Peter Curling, Pauline Bewick, Letitia M Hamilton, Kenneth Webb, John Shinnors and Colin Middleton are among the artists featured in an online catalogue that is brimful of interest.  The sale is on view at the RDS today, tomorrow and Monday and gets underway online at 6.30 pm next Tuesday.
