SALE OF IMPORTANT IRISH ART
At: The Salerooms, 26 St.Stephen’s Green
On: Weds.1st June, 2011 at 6:00pm
155 lots – Some of the familiar ‘big’ names are here, including Maurice Wilks, Frank McKelvey, Jack B Yeats, Frank Egginton, Paul Henry, Sir William Orpen, Erskine Nicol, Walter Frederick Osborne, Sir John Lavery, Louis le Brocquy, Tony O’Malley, Colin Middleton, Harry Kernoff as well as a host of lesser known artists.
The two Jack B Yeats
works/daubs both carry high estimates though it’s hard to see why you would want either hanging on your wall. Lot.54. “The Waterfall by the Road” (below) is thought to depict the beautiful Glenmacnass Waterfall in County Wicklow but it would encourage few to visit the location. The ubiquitous Louis le Brocquy features too, as does the undecipherable Tony O’Malley but, as usual for me, it is the Paul Henry, Lot.16. (pictured bottom) which is head and shoulders above the rest. Priced to sell – a snip at the pre-sale estimate of €60,000 – €80,000.
