    ANOTHER GREAT NIGHT OF IRISH ART SALES

    Monday, December 7th, 2015

    Convad by Dan O'Neill sold for 15,000 at hammer.

    Convad by Dan O’Neill sold for 15,000 at hammer.

    A Yeats at 210,000 and a Henry at 97,000 helped to make for another great night for Irish art sales in Dublin this evening.  These prices at Morgan O’Driscoll’s Irish and International art auction are hammer, to which fees and commissions amounting to just under 25% will be added.  They continue the trend established at last weeks Irish art sales in Dublin, which were notable for competitive bidding and a number of above estimate prices.  This is in sharp contrast to the situation in latter years and shows that the recovery in prices in the market for Irish art is now well and truly established.  One work by Michael Flatley sold for 34,000, the second was passed. Each one had been estimated at 30,000-50,000.  Dan O’Neill’s Convad made 15,000 at hammer.  Other prices included St. George’s Market, Belfast by Markey Robinson (14,000), Glacier III by Barrie Cooke (7,600), White Scarecrow and Clown by John Shinnors (11,000), Grid by John Kingerlee (6,000), Second Version of Painting 1946 (1971), a lithograph by Francis Bacon (7,500),  Whispering leaves and wandering sheep by Joseph Malachy Kavanagh (8,500), Tarring the Shed by Nano Reid (11,500), Being 1997 by Louis le Brocquy (13,000) and Barn, West of Ireland by Donald Teskey (9,000).
