    BRIAN MAGUIRE’S PORTRAIT OF BISHOP WILLIE WALSH

    Sunday, May 19th, 2019

    Bishop Willie Walsh of Killaloe is generally considered by liberals in Ireland to be one of the good guys. An arresting portrait of the catholic bishop who retired in 2010 by Brian Maguire, one of Ireland’s leading expressionist artists, comes up at Morgan O’Driscoll’s current online sale of Irish art which runs to May 20. It seems an appropriate pairing. Maguire’s long career has seen him reach fearlessly into the plight of people in uncomfortable places many of us might chose to not go – suicidal prisoners in Irish jails, children of the favelas in South America, refugees at risk of drowning in the Mediterranean and displaced Syrians and Sudanese are all on his list of subjects.

    Brian Maguire’s Portrait of Bishop Willie Walsh UPDATE: THIS WAS UNSOLD

    The Maguire portrait is lot 80 and estimated at 1,500-2,000. Meantime it might be of interest to not that the remains of the fishing vessel Barca Nostra, in which up to 900 migrants died when it sank in the Mediterranean in 2015, is displayed at the 58th Venice Art Biennale which runs to next November 24.

    The Irish and International art sale by Morgan O’Driscoll at the RDS on April 29 has been on view both in London and, for the first time, New York. The auctioneer has worked very hard over many years to enhance the international base of collectors of Irish art so it will be of great interest to see if the trip Stateside bears fruit in the way that various viewings in London have added a new dimension to these sales.
