QUARTERLY SALE OF IRISH PAINTINGS
Quality and value abound amongst the 231 Lots on offer in Ross’s Quarterly Irish Art Sale on Wednesday 26th March next.
All the usual suspects are here including the overrated Markey Robinson, the awful Graham Knuttel, the talented but repetitive Gregory Moore, Samuel McLarnon, Ken Hamilton and Dennis Orme Shaw but, for me, it’s the works by Maurice Canning Wilks and William Percy French that stand-out from the rest. Both artists are still just about within the budget of the ordinary art collector!
If there’s one criticism that I have of many of William Percy French’s paintings, it is that they are too damn small – I like a bigger bang for my buck and that is where the likes of Maurice Canning Wilks, Dennis Orme Shaw etc. win out. Big walls need big paintings but it’s hard not to be seduced by the beauty and simplicity of French’s watercolours. There are two included in this sale with low four figure estimates.
