      Rear Admiral Richard Brydges Beechey HRHA (1808-1895) South Stack Lighthouse Holyhead (1872)

      Est: €15,000 - €25,000

      Rear Admiral Richard Brydges Beechey HRHA (1808-1895) South Stack Lighthouse Holyhead (1872) oil on canvas signed 'Beechey 1872' lower right and titled verso h:92  w:137.30 cm. Provenance: Gorry Gallery, Dublin; Private Collection Exhibited: Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin 1872, no.41; Royal Academy, London 1872, no.1039; Gorry Gallery, Dublin 1st-19th November 2021, no.15 With his customary penchant for stormy sea scenes, Beechey has depicted the South Stack Lighthouse, illuminated by winter sunlight, and silhouetted against dark scudding rainclouds. Seagulls hover over white-capped waves, while a line of cormorants take flight, heading towards the rocky shore. To the right of the lighthouse, a suspension bridge connects South Stack to Holy Island (Holyhead). Tiny figures are visible on the suspension bridge, watching the progress of a three-masted barque, that struggles against wind and tide, endeavouring to steer clear of the rocky coastline. Visible on the mountain side is a nineteenth century castellated structure; above that can be seen roads and walls, and beyond that again, the dark mountain top, shrouded in white clouds. Waves crash against the cliffs, and a section of ship's mast floats in the foreground. The South Stack lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1809, as a result of reports compiled by Capt. Hugh Evans, and is located on a small island to the west of Holy Island in Anglesea. The elegant suspension bridge depicted in Beechey's painting was constructed in 1828, but has since been replaced by a new bridge. Beechey's painting includes cormorants and gulls, and the area is today still famous for its birdlife. Born in London in 1808, Richard Brydges Beechey was a naval officer who became one of Ireland's most accomplished marine painters. After training at the Royal Naval College in Portsmouth, he was stationed in the West Indies and in 1825 joined HMS Blossom, serving in the Pacific under his older brother, the hydrographer Frederick William Beechey. During this time Beechey landed on Pitcairn Island, where he sketched John Adams, the last surviving mutineer from HMS Bounty. His 1834 painting H. M. Fisgard Weathering the Rocks off Ushant, exhibited at the Gorry Gallery in 2010, depicts a naval vessel in heavy seas, with rocks and a headland in the distance. In 1835 Beechey was transferred to the Admiralty Survey of Ireland, and his surveying of Lough Erne, along with Lieut. James Woolfe, marked the beginning of years of creating detailed charts of the coast and rivers of Ireland. Throughout these years, he painted consistently, exhibiting both at the Royal Academy and the Royal Hibernian Academy. Promoted in 1840 to the rank of Commander, he continued to paint, many of his canvases depicting Irish scenes. At the British Institution in 1858, he showed Hooker, off Cork Harbour. He first exhibited at the RHA in 1842, where he showed three works, including The Total Loss of the "Intrinsic" of Liverpool in 1836, but did not show at the Academy in Dublin again until 1861. After retiring from the Navy in 1864, with the rank of Admiral, Beechey settled for a time at Monkstown, Co. Dublin, and four years later was elected HRHA. He later moved back to England, where he continued to paint Irish maritime scenes. There are works by Beechey in collections in Ireland and abroad. His Mail Boat "Connaught" is in the National Gallery of Ireland, while a view of the Blasket Islands is in the Royal St. George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire, along with a panoramic view of Kingstown Harbour.

      Richard Brydges Beechey HRHA (1808-1895) The Approaching Storm (1864) oil on canvas signed lower left and dated 1864 h:62  w:90.10 cm. Provenance: Private Collection Signed and dated 1860, and depicting a large gaff-rigged yacht of perhaps forty tons, struggling in rough seas off a desolate coast, this is a classic Beechey maritime scene, one fraught with danger. On the rocky shore, a line of timber ribs, the remains of a wrecked ship, serves as a reminder of the dangers of these stormy and inhospitable waters. Attempting to tack in heavy seas, a yacht has lost headway and is drifting aft. The boom has swung across the deck so that the mainsail is ineffective, pressing against the topping lift. Two crew members struggle in vain to swing the boom to windward, so as to catch the wind and regain headway. However the wind is pushing the yacht inexorably backwards. Forward along the deck, a third crew member pushes at the leech of the foresail with a gaff hook, in a vain attempt to also bring it out so as to catch the wind. In nautical parlance, the vessel is caught 'in irons'. To regain headway, it would have to rotate towards shore, a hazardous manoeuvre. Having completed the turn successfully, three other yachts are heading into the distance. Over the course of his career, Beechey exhibited several paintings of yachts racing, including his 1875 Entrance to Cork Harbour which was shown at the RHA, followed by, three years later, The Rivals, at the Entrance of Cork Harbour. This latter is probably the same painting now in the Royal St. George Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire, titled Yacht Racing in Cork Harbour. Born in London in 1808, Richard Brydges Beechey was a naval officer who became one of Ireland's most accomplished marine painters. After training at the Royal Naval College in Portsmouth, he was stationed in the West Indies and in 1825 joined HMS Blossom, serving in the Pacific under his older brother, the hydrographer Frederick William Beechey. During this time Beechey landed on Pitcairn Island, where he sketched John Adams, last surviving mutineer from HMS Bounty. In 1835, transferred to the Admiralty Survey of Ireland and his survey of Lough Erne, with Lieut. James Woolfe, marked the beginning of years of surveying the coast and rivers of Ireland. Throughout these years, he painted consistently, exhibiting both at the Royal Academy and the Royal Hibernian Academy. After retiring from the Navy in 1864, with the rank of Admiral, Beechey settled for a time at Monkstown, Co. Dublin and four years later was elected HRHA. In 1874, he was living at 110 Pembroke Road, and in that year painted Eagle Island, off Erris Head, West of Ireland, a work exhibited a decade later at the Royal Hibernian Academy. [Exh. Gorry Gallery 2003] By 1885, he was living at Plymouth, where he continued painting. Another late work, Bringing Home the Turf, County Kerry was shown in the Gorry Gallery in 2005. There are works by Beechey in collections in Ireland and abroad. His Mail Boat "Connaught" is in the National Gallery of Ireland, while a view of the Blasket Islands is in the Royal St. George Yacht Club, along with a panoramic view of Kingstown Harbour. Fastnet Rock, and Lights, off Cape Clear, shown at the RHA in 1877, is now in the collection of the Royal Ocean Racing Club, while HMS Erebus passing through the chain of bergs (1842) is in the Maritime Museum in Greenwich.

Throughout his naval career he painted many accomplished marine works and exhibited numerous paintings at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and at the Society of British Artists.Strickland notes that Beechey was employed on the survey work at the mouth of the Shannon and the west coast of Ireland, during which time he sent works to the Royal Hibernian Academy, becoming an honorary member in 1868. After his retirement from the Navy in 1864 he settled in Ireland, living for many years at Monkstown, and later in Pembroke Road, Dublin. While landscapes are not unknown, it is for his marine work that Beechey is best remembered. His many years as a sailor and his understanding of the vagaries of the sea underpins all his work and is evident in the present work which depicts sailing boats beating towards the coast in rough seas.

Kerry Oil on canvas, 60 x 91cmSigned and dated 1888Born in 1808 in London, the son of Sir William Beechey RA, Richard entered the Navy in 1822, retired as a Captain in 1864 and became a Vice-Admiral in 1879. Throughout his naval career he painted many accomplished marine works and exhibited numerous paintings at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and at the Society of British Artists. Strickland notes that Beechey was employed on the survey work at the mouth of the Shannon and the west coast of Ireland, during which time he sent works to the Royal Hibernian Academy, becoming an honorary member in 1868. After his retirement from the Navy in 1864 he settled in Ireland, living for many years at Monkstown, and later in Pembroke Road, Dublin.The present work is of an, as yet, unidentified view, quite possibly in Kerry where the artist holidayed and painted, submitting a number of Kerry views such as Upper Lake, Killarney (1873), Magillicuddy’s Reeks (1876), The Great Skellig (1883) for exhibition at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin. The artist’s depiction of such a beauty spot in Ireland is treated in a typical fashion for the mid-19th century, with the contrasting uses of the lake being observed - on the left is a group of women and children washing clothes, while to the right of the composition is a small group of gentlemen fishermen in a rowing boat, with another fisherman beyond on the lake’s shore. The lake is seen below a cascading falls from which emanates a hazy curtain of spray. The dramatic landscape is held together by the inclusion of a road bridge just above the top of the falls and a horse and cart add scale and interest. While Beechey is rightly famed for his marine pictures, it is fair to say that his handling of the landscape, the composition and atmosphere is well beyond the level usually ascribed to an ‘amateur’ artist.
