Description: Jack Butler Yeats RHA (1871-1957)Lambay (1925)Oil on board, 23 x 35.5cm (9 x 14'')SignedExhibited: 'Jack B. Yeats: Pictures of Irish Life', The Tooth Gallery London, March/April 1925, Catalogue No.32.Literature: 'Jack B. Yeats: Catalogue Raisonne of Oil Paintings' by Hilary Pyle, Catalogue No.261, page 236, Vol.1 (wrongly illustrated).Yeats sketched Lambay Island from the Malahide Road in 1925, (sketchbook 214 [138]). (He also produced a painting of Ireland’s Eye at the same time). This painting is based on that sketch in which he noted the yellow light of the sun above the horizon and on the left-hand side the grey blue of the sea. The foreground shows the dark green shoreline with brown sandbanks visible through the waves. The sky is overcast with blustery clouds of grey and blue. This dominates the upper most section of the composition while beneath an expanse of golden tinged sky prevails. Lambay, four miles off the coast, rises above the horizon line amidst this calm surrounding. The hazy mass of land appears mirage like in the distance.Dr. Roisin Kennedy
