Still life and Photorealist art a feature of Whyte’s RDS sale

Des O’Sullivan reports on the important sale of Irish and International art in Dublin on February 23.

A screen print by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein is a highlight at Whyte’s sale of Irish and International Art at the RDS on February 23. Still Life with Lobster, which dates to the mid 1970s is estimated at €12,000-€15,000.

It will be offered alongside an iconic West of Ireland landscape by Paul Henry (€60,000-€70,000) and strong examples by Irish women artists with striking works by May Guinness and Mary Swanzy.

Still Life by Guinness is estimated at €8,000-€10,000. Two examples by Swanzy show her preoccupation with war in the 1940’s.

Revolution is estimated at €4,000-€6,000 and Bridge has an estimate of €5,000-€7,000.

There are two sizeable oil paintings by the Cork-born artist Patrick Hennessy.

Both Photorealist North African scenes were at the artist’s studio sale, along with work by his life partner Harry Robertson Craig, in London in 1986.
