Something a little special for Christmas?

Two giants of the Irish Art World face off at the forthcoming Alderfer Auction, Pennsylvania, USA on Thursday 12th December.

Paul Henry’s iconic oil on panel “Lough Derg” (24″ x 22″) carries a low estimate of $30,000/$50,000 and comes with the provenance of at one time belonging to the late Sean T O’Kelly, President of Ireland (1945-59). This painting was used on various railway company and tourist industry posters over the years but they are as nothing to the original which has a real “wow” factor to it.

Up against this masterpiece is yet another indescribable oil on board daub from Jack B Yeats titled “Sea and Lake” (9.25″ x 14″) and carrying the same estimate as the Paul Henry! I know which I’d rather hang on my wall.

Online bidding is available through the invaluable.com auction portal at:  www.invaluable.com/catalog/u4odjych7m

One for the one you love and one for the mother-in law?

Update: the Paul Henry sold for $37,500 and the Yeats for $42,500 both plus 25% buyer’s premium.
