by Adam's Auctioneers




Paul Henry RHA RUA (1876-1958) Mountain Landscape with Cottages c.1926-30 Oil on board, 28 x 35.5cm (11 x 14'') Signed Provenance: Sale, these rooms, Dublin, 24 March 1977 cat no. 41, as Cottages by the Lake, Outer Killary, Connemara; from the estate of the late James Gibson; sale, these rooms, 29 May 2013, cat. no. 69. where purchased by the present owners. Dr S.B. Kennedy wrote of this work in 2013: ‘Although one cannot be certain, the profile of the mountains that dominate this scene are similar to those in other Henry pictures of these years, such as West of Ireland Cottages c. 1926-30 (Kennedy, number 1253) and Cottages, West of Ireland, 1928-30 (Kennedy, 2007, number 689, reproduced). The handling of the paint, which is relatively 'dry', and the brushwork suggest a date of execution of 1926-30. The barest hint of the direction of the overcast light that sets the mood of the painting is typical of Henry and its brooding nature, derived from the towering mountains, illustrates the growing personal difficulties that dominated his life in these years.’ ‘Mountain Landscape with Cottages’ was numbered 1272 in the late S. B. Kennedy's ongoing cataloguing of Paul Henry's oeuvre.
