by South Dublin Auction




Star Lot: A gorgeous original oil on canvas painting by well known Irish artist Tom Cullen (1934-2001) and dated to 1989. Features Cole's lane off Moore's street with its distinctive arch in thick textural brushstrokes. Tom developed a distinctive style over the years. Known primarily for his scenes of vanishing Dublin, his application of paints is bold and knowing, adding strength and character to the work. Tom used a palette knife technique and painted with a range of harmonious colour tones. The resultant, unique style can only be accredited to the artist himself. Cullen does fantastically at auction, with sales at Whytes for such distinctive work reaching €750.
Mm: 46 x 36 cm.

Tom Cullen was born in Donnybrook, Dublin in 1934. Tom lectured in The National College of Art and Design, Thomas Street, Dublin and taught art in Blackrock College. He spent six years painting on the continent, primarily in Austria, Bavaria and Switzerland. He shared his first solo exhibition with Robert Ballagh and had many successful solo exhibitions throughout his long career. These included: The Graphics Gallery, Stephens Green; Man of Aran, Aran Quay; Ashling Gallery, Madison Avenue, New York.
