Description: Lilian Lucy Davidson ARHA (1879-1954) The Seine, Paris, Through Trees Watercolour, 40 x 33cm (15¾ x 13'') Signed with monogram Originally from Bray, Co. Wicklow, Lilian Davidson studied at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art where she was a prize-winning student. In 1897 she won the RDS Scholarship which carried a free studentship, it didn?t come too soon as that was the year of her father?s death. She began exhibiting at the RHA in 1914 and did so regularly until her death. When in Dublin she taught painting privately in her studio and at schools around the county. Although not in very buoyant financial circumstances she travelled extensively and did so for most of her life. She painted landscapes in France, Belgium and Switzerland, besides various parts of Ireland. She first exhibited at the Watercolour Society in 1912, and did so until 1954. She also exhibited regularly with the Dublin Painters Society (1939-54) and the Munster Fine Art Club, and was part of an interesting circle, being friendly with Jack Yeats whom she painted. She also wrote plays under the pseudonym of ?Ulick Burke?, and her most famous play 'Bride' was directed at the Gate Theatre by Hilton Edwards, with sets designed by Michael McLiammoir. She was certainly aware of the works of Honore Daumier and Jean Francois Millet and used the same prototype of humanity for important works depicting the Irish Peasant. Davidson portrayed the Claddagh, the Irish-speaking district of Galway, at a time when she was involved with the Torch Theatre for whom she was writing a play. Her portraits of Jack B. Yeats and Sarah Purser can be found in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Ireland, and other works including a self-portrait 'The Golden Shawl' are in Dublin City Gallery, the Hugh Lane, the Abbey Theatre and Ulster Museum Collections....

A friend of Mainie Jellett, Lilian Lucy Davidson was, like Jellett, one of the generation of exceptionally capable, independent minded women artists who contributed greatly to Irish art and cultural life in the early 20th century, particularly in the move toward modernism. She painted notable portraits, and she designed and painted theatre sets, but her passion was for natural subjects out of doors and she worked extensively throughout Ireland as well as spending time in France and Belgium. This fine watercolour demonstrated her combination of technical expertise and relaxed, informal attitude.

Lilian Lucy Davidson was born in Bray, County Wicklow in 1879. Davidson attended the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art (DMSA) from 1895 to 1905. Whilst at the DMSA, Davidson won prizes in 1895 and 1896, and was awarded a scholarship and free studentship at the Royal Dublin Society in 1897.
Davidson first exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) in 1914. The painting exhibited by the RHA in 1916, 'The Harbour, St Ives', demonstrates an influence from Stanhope Forbes and the Newlyn school, with a bright palette and contrasting illumination, which became characteristic of her work. Her landscape, 'Low Tide, Wicklow', which was exhibited at the RHA in 1934, and 'Boats at Wicklow, Dusk' along with this work show her ability to depict reflections in water.
Davidson exhibited at the Salon des Beaux Arts, Paris, the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and in Amsterdam. She was elected associate to the RHA in 1940, and continued to exhibit there until her death.

Wicklow, Lillian Lucy Davidson attended the Metropolitan School of Art Dublin and won prizes in 1895, 1896 and in 1897. She won the RDS scholarship that carried a free studentship, which allowed her to travel extensively. Unlike her friend Mainie Jellett, and many of her contemporaries, Lillian Davidson could not, out of economic necessity spend long periods abroad, where she might have been more influenced by the Modernist Movement. During the 1920's and 30's she embarked on a peasant cycle of paintings travelling to Donegal, Galway, Achill, and Roundstone in Connemara. The early influence of Jack Yeats is very much evident in this group of paintings, but her uniqueness is in her distinct brushwork and depicting peasants in deep thought evoking an emotional response from the viewer. All over Ireland there are little shrines, which command a purely local loyalty. A Holy Well, a Mass Rock, the site of an early church, or some spot associated with a Saint who lived and worked in the locality. In the 'Holy Well', Davidson depicts an elderly barefoot peasant couple by a Holy Well. The scene of almost perfect tranquility and prayer is only disturbed by the gaze of the elderly peasant woman, reminiscent of the French artist Honor Daumier; powerfully direct, and also a pioneer of naturalism....

Auction Date: Sep 30, 2015

Estimate: €10,000 - €15,000

Description: Lilian Lucy Davidson ARHA (1879-1954)Boats at Wicklow, DuskOil on canvas, 91.5 x 71cm (36 x 28)Signed with monogramLiterature: In the mainstream of Irish naturalism - the art of Lillian Davidson 1879 -1954 by Katherine Cahill, Irish Arts Review vol. 15 1999 P43 Fig. 14Lilian Davidson was born in Bray, Co. Wicklow and was the sixth of ten children. At the age of sixteen she went to study at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art Dublin and won three prizes there, including the RDS Scholarship. According to Theo Snoddy; ?Closely associated with the Royal Hibernian Academy, she exhibited 135 works in 40 years, beginning in 1914.? (94) She also showed at the Water Colour Society, the Dublin Painters' exhibitions, the Oireachtas and Aonach Tailteann exhibitions. Her work was shown abroad in London, Amsterdam, Chicago and Paris (1924 and 1930, Salon de la Societe Nationale). Aside from painting, she also wrote poetry and plays for the Gate and Torch Theatres (where she adopted the pseudonym Ulick Burke). In terms of her art practice, while principally a landscape and genre painter, she was also an accomplished portraitist and an artist fully engaged with her subjects. She painted fine likenesses of artists such as Jack B. Yeats, Sarah Purser and George Russell (AE). In a critique, The Studio described her as a ?competent and decorative painter.? (Snoddy, 95). She was so much more than that however as testified by her range of skilful output. In Ireland?s Painters, she has been described as ?much influenced by the early work of Jack B. Yeats, rather unusual at that time.? (Crookshank and Glin, 297). Indeed her figure studies with a bold and defined palette are close to Yeats? work but also to that of Conor, Henry and Lamb.According to Katherine Cahill writing in the Irish Arts Review; ?She had a special ability in painting water, river, sea or canal. Perhaps because she was born by the sea in Bray, ?Boats at Wicklow, Dusk? is a tour-de-force of such painting.' Wicklow town and bridge are?featured, this time as backdrop to the boats at anchor, the rigging in mirror image in the still water of the harbour, while her mastery of atmosphere is captured in the failing evening light. (Cahill, 39) She had a remarkable ability to capture the mystery and nuances of colour, light and shadow in night studies. Her paintings on the subject include; ?Night in Claddagh,? 1933, ?Night,? (undated) and ?Cottages, Keel, Achill,? 1938. While more apt in a description of the latter painting Lilian Davidson?s own poem, ?A Night?: 'The sky itself like a purple cloak'. (Cahill, 39) is also applicable to ?Boats at Wicklow, Dusk,? where the pale purple haze suffuses the painting. A connection between Stanhope Forbes of the Newlyn School and Lilian Davidson has been speculated upon. Forbes had that enviable ability of composing scenes with a colourful yet moody palette and combining a perfect blend of realism and figuration. Cahill has observed that Davidson follows ?Forbes' principles of using a bright palette, square brush technique and strong impasto highlights laid on with softer brush mark, principles she carried out down the succeeding decades. Though not always employing a bright palette, she did apply his adjuration of 'strength - strength of impression, strength of illumination, of contrasts.' (Cahill, 35) French Impressionism is an acknowledged reference in Davidson?s work and ?Boats at Wicklow, Dusk? shares a remarkable affinity with Claude Monet?s ?Fishing Boats at Honfleur,? 1868 both in terms of compositional structure and treatment of boats, rigging and their reflections within the water beneath. Where Davidson captures Wicklow town and bridge behind the boats, Monet features the pier and town at Honfleur. There the comparison ends as Monet?s freer impressionist hand is unlike the naturalism and tighter brushwork of Davidson, depicting Wicklow?s bridge and buildings, particularly St Thomas? Church with copper clad cupola; all elements identifiable and carefully delineated. This painting is a particularly fine example of Davidson?s maritime paintings and one that is full of atmosphere. The artist herself was seen as a mysterious and enigmatic character and there is much in the treatment of ?Boats at Wicklow, Dusk,? that captures this elusive spirit.
