The Art of Vida Lahey, Works Located to 1989, Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, 1989, pp. 9, 34, 37, 40 ESSAY We are grateful to Joanna Bosse, Curator, Bayside Gallery, and her Queensland colleagues for their assistance with this catalogue entry.   Vida Lahey’s exhibition at the Fine Arts Society’s Gallery in Melbourne in 1932 featured seventeen oil paintings, the second largest of which was Early morning, Brisbane River, 1932. It was an immediate hit with the critics. Harold Herbert, writing for The Age, considered the painting to be an oil of ‘high order ... an admirably painted stretch of land and blue water, spacey in conception, and simple yet convincing in treatment.’1 Blamire Young, in his review for The Herald, described Lahey as a ‘great colourist’, and that her evocation of the early morning riverscape was marked by its ‘pure light and the hush of dawn.’2 Arthur Streeton was also an admirer of the ‘fine qualities of light and air’ in her work,3 as was George Bell who considered her to be ‘an artist of consummate taste, an exquisite sense of colour, and a fine sense of composition.’4   Lahey was not only a celebrated artist; she was also a noted author, educator and arts advocate, conferred a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 1958 for her services to culture and the arts in Queensland. An early talent, she was awarded first prize for landscape by the Australian Natives’ Association, Brisbane in 1903, before she moved to Melbourne to commence formal studies at the National Gallery Art School in 1905. Two years later, whilst still a student, she won first prize for still life in the landmark First Australian Exhibition of Women’s Work held at the Exhibition Building. However, it was the painting Monday morning, 1912, which really launched her career, a powerful study of two young women labouring in the Lahey family’s household laundry. It entered the collection of the Queensland Art Gallery that same year. The outbreak of war saw her travel to London and at its conclusion, she took classes in Paris in 1919, first at the Académie Calorossi, then with Ethel Carrick Fox; and in St. Ives the following year with New Zealand artist Frances Hodgkins. The 1920s saw further travels through Europe before Lahey settled permanently in Queensland in 1929.   In Early morning, Brisbane River, 1932, the artist captures a sparkling image of an urban river landscape in its heyday. To the right can be seen the old Naval Stores which still stand on the site of a former quarry, the scars of which are evident in the adjacent cliffs. Across the water lies a glimpse of the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens buttressing the former Eagle Street wharves, one of the city’s busiest locations in the 1930s. Characterised by its ‘picturesque personality of salt seas and sailor men’,5 Eagle Street’s row of low sheds marked the locations of Raff’s Wharf, Newton’s Wharf and Barkers Wharf. Presiding over these was a streetscape of multi-storey warehouses once described as being ‘probably, as a group, the best in Brisbane.’6 These architectural symbols of trade and prosperity included Harpers Building (1889); the Mutual Life Association of Australasia (1888); and Parbury’s (1912); with the tallest and newest being the Orient Steam Navigation Company headquarters (1930). Sadly, all were swept away by building booms in the 1960s and early 1980s.     1. Herbert, H., ‘A Brisbane artist: The art of Vida Lahey’, The Age, 19 October 1932, p. 11 2.

Despite the suggested tranquility, this urban island, captured by Vida Lahey in (Carts in Eagle Street), c.1913, was only fifty metres from the bustling commercial hub of wharves and warehouses located on the banks of the Brisbane River. Here, ‘draymen and cabmen ... waited at the reserve for hire (as did) waterside workers who waited at ‘The Triangle’ each morning to be hired as day-labourers.’1 Visible at the centre of the composition are wooden sheds containing public urinals for the men’s convenience (later removed in the 1970s) and to the right, just out of view, was a water fountain set up for the horses and workers which survived at the site until the Second World War. At the rear is the ‘old’ Dalgetty Building (1883 – 84), and presiding over the whole scene is a majestic Banyan fig tree and two figs planted in the 1870s by Walter Hill, superintendent of the nearby City Botanic Gardens. Due to their prominence, it is possible that this work is actually The banyan trees, Eagle Street, exhibited in the artist’s solo exhibition in 1924. Eagle Street was once Brisbane’s ‘most romantic street’, full of picturesque maritime personalities who populated the ‘shabby, friendly quays and lanes that debouch on the river. In (Carts in Eagle Street), Vida Lahey set up her easel on The Triangle’s third boundary of Elizabeth Street, from which she also painted The carter’s rest, Eagle Street, 1913, now in the collection of the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art.3 Initially trained at the Brisbane Central Technical College under Godfrey Rivers, Lahey moved to Melbourne in 1905 to study at the National Gallery Art School under Frederick McCubbin and Bernard Hall. She attracted public notice two years later when she was awarded first prize for still life in the landmark First Australian Exhibition of Women’s Work held at the Royal Exhibition Building in 1907. She subsequently returned to Brisbane and by the time she painted (Carts in Eagle Street), Lahey was already noted for her empathetic portrayal of workers, both domestic and commercial, through such works as Monday morning, 1912, a powerful portrait of two women laboring in her family’s laundry. Gifted that same year to the Queensland Art Gallery, this life-size painting quickly became one of the most popular works in the collection. However, little of Lahey’s output prior to these years survives due to a fire which burnt her studio down in 1912 with all her paintings.4 As such, (Carts in Eagle Street) marks a renewal of practice for the artist. During the Great War, she based herself in London, and studied further in England and France. On her return, Lahey was peripatetic for some years with periods in Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney before finally re-settling in Brisbane in 1929. She would return to painting images of the rapidly changing city, particularly for a solo exhibition in 1932 (see lot. 7), but the number of surviving pre-war works that have survived is few. Inevitably, the drowsy ambience of this scene is long gone, overtaken by the increasing use of motor-driven transport which eventually supplanted the ranks of horse-drawn carts. Today, only the heritage-listed Banyan tree and its White Fig companions remain. 1. East, J.

Through her career, Lahey became increasingly drawn to still life and it was a theme she returned to regularly. It provided her the opportunity to explore composition, texture, form and her love of colour. By the mid-1920s she was highly regarded amongst Australian women artists and was admired for her bold and proficient use of light and colour.
