In 1922 she again submitted her work and won both the prestigious Taylor Award and, later, a British Institution scholarship which she held in all for a period of three years. Up until 1924 she studied under William Orpen, W. R. Sickert, George Clausen and Sir Gerald Kelly. She exhibited regularly from 1920 until 1959 at the Belfast Art Society, which later became the Ulster Academy of Arts and, later still, the Royal Ulster Academy. Mackie exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1926-7. She also exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Watercolour Society of Ireland from 1922 until 1947.

1937 concert program signed by Bela Bartok, Edwin Fischer and Erno Dohnanyi

by Lion Heart Autographs

September 30, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,100 - $1,500

Description: BARTOK, BELA. (1881-1945). Hungarian composer, pianist and ethnomusicologist; creator of Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste, the Concerto for Orchestra, and other 20th-century masterpieces. Signed program. (“Bartók Béla”). 15pp. 8vo. Budapest, May 4, 1937. Our booklet was produced for a concert at the city theater at which works by Beethoven and Bach were performed by Bartok, Swiss-born German Pianist EDWIN FISCHER (1886-1960; “Edwin Fischer”) and Hungarian pianist and composer ERNŐ DOHNÁNYI (1877-1960; “Dohnányi Ernő”), both of whom have signed in addition to Bartok. ********** The mid-18th century reorganization of the Hapsburg Empire into separate Austrian and Hungarian states fomented a Hungarian nationalism that deeply influenced Bartók and his music. Beginning in the early 1900s he started to employ Hungarian folk music in his compositions, and the 1904 Budapest performance of his symphonic poem Kossuth, which memorialized the father of Hungarian democracy, brought him much acclaim. It was not unusual for composers to model their work on popular folk tunes but Bartók strove towards something more authentically Hungarian. ********** Despite his great attachment to Hungarian culture, Bartók, as early as 1931, was protesting the Hungarian government’s fascist leanings. In 1939, he sent his archive to London for safe-keeping and, following the death of his mother, and his ethno-musicological research notwithstanding, he began to consider emigration seriously. After completing his second American tour in April and May of 1940, Bartók returned to Hungary for a final concert in Budapest before leaving his homeland forever and settling in New York, where he spent the remainder of his life. ********** Fischer was a prominent champion of the repertoire of the German masters. One of the leading pianists of his day, known for his powerful, yet sensitive interpretations, Fischer also published editions of Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart. He was the teacher of, among others, Paul Badura-Skoda, Daniel Barenboim and Alfred Brendel. ********** Dohnányi studied at the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music under István Thomán, a pupil of Liszt, but soon left his studies to concertize around Europe and North America, earning a reputation as both a pianist and composer of great skill. As music director of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra, Dohnányi was a great proponent of Bartók’s music, who also stood up against Nazi persecution of Jewish musicians. Dohnányi’s son, Hans, collaborated with his brother-in-law Dietrich Bonhoeffer against the Nazis, costing them both their lives. Dohnányi’s grandson, Christoph, was the music director of the Cleveland Orchestra. Dohnányi adopted the son of the famous violinist Bronisław Huberman after marrying Huberman’s ex-wife. He eventually settled in the U.S. where he became interested in American folk music. Among his numerous compositions are Ruralia Hungarica and American Rhapsody. ********** Our program dates from just before Hungary’s alliance with Nazi Germany, an event which radically impacted its musicians, including Bartók and Dohnányi. All three musicians have signed the front cover in blue ink above their printed names. Light mounting traces on the inside and outside of the back cover; otherwise in fine condition – a rare combination.

Helen Frankenthaler, ‘Paris Review’, Screenprint, 1966

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: Screenprint in colors on heavy wove paperUSA, 1966Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011) – American Abstract Expressionist painterPublished by The Paris Review, New York Full marginsDimensions: 25 x 38 in. (63.5 x 96.5 cm.)Good condition Estimate $2,000-$3,000Helen Frankenthaler (American, 1928-2011) Originally studying under Rufino Tamayo, second-generation Abstract Expressionist Helen Frankenthaler became active in the New York School of the 1950s. Influenced by Arshile Gorky, Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock, Frankenthaler gained fame with her ‘soak-stain’ technique – applying thin washes of paint onto raw, unprimed canvas. Her iconic Mountains and Sea (1952) was an important work for Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland and other Color Field painters of the 1960s. Her works often evoked elements of landscape or figuration in the shaping of their forms, almost always improvised from start to finish. In addition to paintings, Frankenthaler was also attracted to printmaking – woodcuts, especially – with hers counting among the greatest contemporary works of that medium. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of many institutions worldwide, including the Art Institute of Chicago; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. ConditionMinor soiling, 2-inch area of skinning center margin recto. Otherwise in good condition.

Charles Henry Cook (c.1830-1906) The Pig Market

by Morgan O'Driscoll

September 14, 2015, 6:00 PM GMT

Skibbereen, Ireland

Estimated Price: €3,000 - €5,000

Description: Charles Henry Cook (c.1830-1906) The Pig Market oil on canvas signed indistinctively lower right h:61.50  w:51 cm. Provenance: Private Collection Charles Cook was a genre and figure painter whose paintings typically featured rural people around his native county Cork. Born in the West Cork town of Bandon, he exhibited work at Dublin's Royal Hibernian Academy in the 1860's and '70's from an address in Patrick Street, Cork. One of those exhibition paintings 'Little Peggy' was identified and sold through this auction house recently, and the most accomplished of his known narrative paintings 'St Patrick's Day' is displayed in the collection of Dublin's National Library. He lived with his widowed mother in Cork before moving to Bath and subsequently he died in Scarborough. As more of his Irish socio-realist works become known, a pattern of subjects emerge featuring sympathetic images of musicians, emigrants, conscripts, romantic subjects and farm workers with at least three featuring pigs. For the poor classes of cottier whose cabin had little or no land, the possession of a pig and its potential market price once reared and fattened, contributed most crucially to the annual income. Often alluded to jovially as 'the gentleman who pays the rent' the pig's sale was critical to raise a large sum. Many accounts survive of the particular care that was needed when the piglets were born. The sow was commonly brought in to the kitchen to farrow (give birth), and someone had to stay up all night to safeguard the dozen or up to twenty piglets or bonhams during their first most vulnerable week of life. Intelligent and responsive as today's family dog, the beasts were easily house trained and would scratch to be let outside in the morning. When market day loomed, they might have to be driven several miles, and care was taken to prevent them becoming lame on the way, as a lame pig was hard to sell (and once it lay down, it was hard to persuade it to stand again). The sticks that Cook shows the men holding, were used to guide the beasts, by tapping their flanks as they trotted up the road. Stories survive of people departing before dawn for Bandon market and the sad parting between pig and owner at the point of sale, as such close proximity built up emotional ties. Cook's familiarity with the economic implications of such scenes, and his attention to details such as the súgán (twisted straw rope) that the seller uses as a lead on the animal's back leg, is evident here. The persuasive leaning stance of the seller, and the contemplation of the potential buyer and his companion, imply an impending sale. In the background, the completion of a similar deal, like the next scene in the play, has men shaking hands over another much larger pig's back, when some 'luck money' was typically returned after payment was paid. The narrative implies that a larger pig makes a swifter sale. Dressed up for the day, the men sport waistcoats under their caped top coats, tall felt Caroline hats and fashionably colourful cravats around stand-up shirt collars. Knee breeches over hand knit stockings and working boots often greased with butter rather than polished, was practical attire for small farmers, all closely observed in Cook's unmistakable style. Temporarily erected tents that sold food and drink and everything desirable for rural life augment the scene. Artists such as Francis Wheatley, Erskine Nicol and Samuel Watson had already made popular the intricacies of Irish fairs and markets in their paintings, by the time Cook painted this in the 1860's or 70's.

These plates, produced by Wedgwood, belonged to the DuPont family. Jessie DuPont was responsible for the restoration and public opening of Stratford Hall. Jessie DuPont is quoted as saying: “Though the first desire in the mind of all Southerners is that there should be a lasting, great memorial to General Lee, I have always felt that there are also other compelling reasons why Stratford should be preserved. Being operated as a living Colonial plantation, it is one of the few places in the country which can teach the present and future generations of youngsters the self-contained way of life adopted by the Fathers of our Country.” Items in overall good condition, despite light crazing.
