Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Sir Jacob Epstein (1880-1959) Portrait bust of 'Tiger King', Man of Aran Bronze, 50cm high (20'') including base Dated 1934 Provenance: Sotheby's Sale, June 1977 where purchased by current owners. The documentary film, Man of Aran, made by Robert Flaherty between 1932 and 1934, featured Aran islanders rather than trained actors. Colman King, otherwise known as 'Tiger King', a blacksmith, fisherman, and currach builder on the islands, was chosen by Flaherty for the male lead owing to his extraordinary physique and ruggedly handsome features. He starred alongside islanders Maggie Dirrane and Michael Dillane, who played his wife and son. In December 1933 the entire cast decamped to London where they spent nine weeks working on the sound track for the film. They returned again for the launch of the film a few months later. Flaherty made sure that Man of Aran was well advertised before its release; events included installing a stuffed shark on the roof of Selfridges store in London in May 1934. There were window displays in shops and cinemas featuring entire scenes from the film including currachs, nets, and life-size figures of the stars dressed in traditional Aran clothing. The cast were photographed viewing these displays, and at every public event they could possibly attend, from shopping sprees, to fashion shows and prize-giving ceremonies. Whether Jacob Epstein saw 'Tiger King' in press photographs, or met him at an event to advertise the film is not clear. But according to The Irish Press at the time, the artist was so inspired by 'Tiger's' weather-worn features that he asked him to model for a portrait bust. For Colman King, new to the world of stardom, modelling for Epstein must have been yet another extraordinary experience. Highly regarded for his innate ability to convey the character and temperament of his sitters, the artist's desire to depict 'Tiger King' was very good for Flaherty, and for press coverage of the film. Four known casts of Tiger King exist out of a possible edition of six. One was shown in an exhibition of Epstein's work at the Victor Waddington Galleries, Dublin in 1948 (now in a private collection in Dublin) at which time a reviewer for The Irish Press described it as 'a remarkable synthesis of the western seaboard type' replete with 'striking quality.' Fifteen of Epstein's sculptures, including Tiger King, were shown in the Little Theatre in Brown Thomas's, Grafton Street, in 1955. The portrait received a special mention from the reviewer for the Irish Times for its 'imperious arrogance.' That version of Tiger King was purchased by the Friends of the National Collections of Ireland, exhibited in the Municipal Gallery in Waterford in 1955, and eventually gifted to the Municipal Gallery, Dublin (now the Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane). The second Tiger King is in the collection of the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, and the fourth from a private collection, is featured in this catalogue. According to the Tate Gallery, London, Epstein was highly regarded for his modernist work, truth to material, and his inspiration from Primitive art, all of which is evident in Tiger King. The artist was knighted in 1954 and died in London in 1959. His portrait of 'Tiger King', replete with hope, and abounding in quality, is symbolic of an important moment in Irish cultural history.

Connolly, Esq., Ottawa on 25 April, 1960Note:Lady Kathleen Epstein (1901-1979) was the muse and the long time mistress who eventually became the second wife of Sir Jacob Epstein. The letters relate to recently received shipments of 3 Epstein bronzes of Deidre the Continental Gallery ordered from Lady Kathleen Epstein in 1959: "Deidre in a Slip"- as the director remarked "is perfect in a soft green tone" and "Deidre with Hands" "unfortunately, is not the case"... "The patina of the latter is a rather harsh flat green" The letters dating: December 11th, 1959; February 22nd, 1960 and May 18th, 1960, discuss the fact that each bronze is unsigned, lacks a foundry mark or date of the casting. As Lady Kathleen Epstein comments indirectly in her certification for this bronze of "Deidre in a Slip" second castings are generally not signed

Description: Sir Jacob Epstein (Br., 1880-1959), Young Boybronze, unsigned, mounted atop an oval hardwood plinth.Bronze 12 in.; HOA 14.5 in.In his book, LET THERE BE SCULPTURE: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY, first published in 1940, Epstein devoted a chapter to explaining his fascination with portraying children: "I have always been attracted by children as models for plastic work. I feel that the life of children has hardly been touched upon in sculpture, and this representation is avoided perhaps because of the difficulties that confront an artist who sets out to present a child. For one thing the child cannot sit still, and to compel a child to be quiet is at once to destroy the spontaneity and charm which lie in its frank and natural expressions. Yet I have attempted time and time this most difficult subject for sculpture...I know I have by no means exhausted the subject."Frank & Marta Tooke, Raleigh, NC Collection of the late Einar V. Rechnitzer, Toronto, CanadaNo apparent condition concerns.
