Bearing second unfinished work on reverse.

Maurice MacGonigal (1900-1979) had trained in the studios of his uncle, Joshua Clarke, and his first cousin, Harry Clarke, in North Frederick Street, Dublin. He became a senior 'flesh' painter on glass as at a very young age. He was enrolled by Bulmer Hobson in 'Fianna Éireann' which was the Scouting arm of Sinn Féin. In 1916 he moved on to membership of Sinn Féin proper, and was the dispatch rider for Seán Dowling (also a neighbour) who was the officer commanding 'C' company, later changed to 'G' Company 4th Battalion, Dublin Brigade, Irish Republican Army.

Maurice MacGonigal became the Company Intelligence Officer in 1920. Following Bloody Sunday and its aftermath in Croke Park on 21 November 1920, a roundup of IRA members by the British Army and the police began. Maurice was arrested on 8 December 1920 at his parents' home on Ranelagh Road. He was interned initially in Kilmainham Gaol, but for greater security was moved to the newly opened internment camp at Ballykinlar in Co. Down. He was brought from Dublin to Belfast by HMS Tiger, a Royal Navy battlecruiser - as a precaution against rescue attempts on the road.

Ballykinlar was the summer HQ for the British Army in Ulster. At the edge of Dundrum Bay it was in a most beautiful place, but also a very damp site. It housed some 200 internees, with approximately 25 per Nissen hut. The Army and other services were housed in the original main buildings. The internees organised themselves along military lines, as in the IRA. Maurice was registered as the rank of 'Artist'( the only such registration in the camp). He also was appointed the 'I/O' ( Intelligence Officer) as, being an artist, he was allowed slightly more freedom of movement about the camp. Most of his paintings and drawings of the Camp, its domestic arrangements, and the local environs are held in public collections. This charming painting was a gift to his friend, neighbour and fellow Intelligence officer, Frank Dowling in 1929, 8 years after the end of the War of Independence in 1921.

The artist's training and indeed, preferred vision, of painting into light (as a painter of Stained Glass) is obvious here. The main buildings in the background - the ochre colours used to act as focal points for the eye - and in the middle distance the Nissen huts housing the internees. Foregrounded are the internees at break, playing sport or running and, in the middle distance the other internees, apparently loitering.

Different colour notes are used by the artist to create movement and recessive spaces with the billowing clouds giving a sense of space in a compressed composition.

The camp, by happenstance, held a great number of men who were to be the nexus of the early Irish Governments. The artist shared his hut space with a number of future politicians including Seán Lemass, whom he knew well from earlier IRA actions. Nearly 40 years later he was to paint the official State portrait of Lemass as Taoiseach for Dáil Éireann.

Maurice MacGonigal remained a 'Plein Air' painter all his life. But this early, and historic work, is indicative of his pictorial interests and his sense of colour. Despite its age it remains a lively colourful and evocative sense of a summer's day. Its mood is optimistic, on a late June day or even early July of 1921, as the Truce negotiations with the British Government were soon to be concluded (11 July 1921) with the release of the internees expected thereafter.

How or where the artist managed to acquire pigments, brushes and paper/canvas is not known so far. One presumes the Clarke Studio could provide, however limited, such things with the commanding officer's permission (Colonel Hely-Hutchinson of Knocklofty, Co.Tipperary).

Even after a century the work has a life and charm so typical of the artist's hand and eye 'en plein air'.

Private collection

Exhibited:
Gorry Gallery, Dublin, November to December, 1993, catalogue no. 42 (illustrated)

This is one of a series of painted panels for the 'Minstrels Hall' in Runnymede House, Shrewsbury Road, Dublin - a splendid 'Arts & Crafts' style house, painted for the owners, the Meade family, at the time of a family wedding in 1932.
The series was a cycle of Irish landscapes and figures. This panel hung on the first level and to the right of the decorative scheme in the two storied Inglenook. The completed decorative scheme was launched by the family with a round of parties and picnics, including an afternoon 'Thé Dansant' attended by the Governor General, James MacNeill, and his wife Josephine( later Irish Minister to The Hague).
The model was the artist's older sister Eileen MacGonigal, the wife of Commandant Louis Marie, an Army officer and, like the artist, War of Independence veteran. Eileen was noted, even then, for her style & panache.
The group of panels were eventually divided between descendants of the commissioning family, prior to the house being sold.

My father always used first class materials, so the paintings have survived in fresh condition to the present day. As the works were hung at a height originally, many of the details are emphasised for viewing from a distance. Today, hung at eye level the viewer gets to see in detail the artist's technique of drawing as well as colour. He had trained and was, at that time, a junior partner in the studios of his cousin Harry Clarke, resulting in his use of vivid colours to gain his visual point, painting, as it were into the light.

Auction Date: May 31, 2021

Estimate: €8,000 - €12,000

Description: Maurice MacGonigalPPRHA HRA HRSA (1900-1979)
OLD DUBLIN PUB (DAVY BYRNE'S)
oil on board
signed lower left; titled on Dawson Gallery label on reverse
h:12  w:32 in.

The artist liked the interiors of pubs where the many surfaces of bottles and glassware created the capacity for an artistic ' tour de force' of painting reflecting images using ' chiaroscuro' to gain its illuminating effect within the subject matter.

The figures left and right frame the composition of the reflecting surfaces.

The hatted figure on the viewer's left was a Hackney Driver (also known as a Hansom Cab driver) who had his carriage stand at the junction of Adelaide Road and Harcourt Street, for the Harcourt Street Railway Station, from where trains went to the suburbs of Dartry, Ranelagh, Dundrum and Foxrock, similar to the Luas trams today. He had moved back to Ireland after the assasination, in June 1922, of his employer, Field Marshall Sir Henry Wilson. He had been recruited by Wilson from Longford - The Wilson-Slator Estate of Knockbaun/Whitehill - adjacent to the Wilson Estate of Currygrane, Ballinalee, County Longford. The latter house was destroyed in August 1922 by the Longford IRA, two months after Wilson's funeral, and on the day the two IRA assassins were hanged. On returning to Dublin the driver brought the Hansom Cab which he drove for Wilson in London. This bowler hatted man was painted and drawn several times by the artist. He also features in works by Harry Kernoff. The figure to the right worked the switching gear for the trams at the Triangle in Ranelagh Village Dublin. He impeded the movement of troops and traffic during the 1916 Rising as well as later during the War of Independence. He was a cousin of Seán Dowling the OC of 'C' company of the IRA in the area and both lived in Dunville Avenue, Ranelagh, where the artist also resided.

My father was known to frequent Davy Byrne's in his younger days, and being of a gregarious disposition he and his friends, Harry Kernoff RHA and Leo Whelan RHA were well known in the area. They all painted many compositions based around those streets and the activities from public house to flower sellers, street musicians and hawkers.

Description: Maurice MacGonigal PRHA (1900-1979)Coastal Scene, West of IrelandOil on board, 30 x 36cm (11¾ x 14¼'')SignedIt's South Connemara, and forms part of a cycle of works by the artist cr 1934-36, broadly known as " Sailing up to Bealadangan". He was staying with Aarland Ussher over several months and in various seasons and painted the local boats on their passages up and around the Islands and seaways of the area. This is unusual as it has no craft of any size in the composition, but I assume the foreground rock formations and the two different tidal movements is what interested him pictorially. There were great horizon lines to be observed in the area, and the remnants of a worked landscape always interested him for the marks and scratches left upon the land by earlier farmers. Autumn and Spring he liked as the oblique light cast, revealed those earlier attempts at agriculture upon the face of the land. Ciaran MacGonigal, 2019...

Description: Maurice MacGonigal PRHA (1900-1979)Dutch Barge, HazelhatchOil on board, 40.5 x 50.5cm (16 x 20'')Signed; signed again, inscribed with title and dated 1977 versoProvenance: Important Irish Art Sale these rooms June 2010, where purchased and thence by descent to the current owner.The artist liked to paint the landscape along the Canal between Clonsilla & Hazelhatch due to the reflections of the water and its effect on the landscape; and the scale of human activity when seen against the canal locks, lockhouses and the humans in attendance on the craft afloat. The Dutch barge had been brought from Holland to ply along the canal and evoked for the artist his time as young man in Holland and the many colourful works he'd painted there when on an RDS scholarship in the late 1920s,and his introduction to that water laden landscape through the family of his fellow pupil Hilda van Stockhum. Our thanks to Ciarán MacGonigal for his help cataloguing this lot....
