      William Magrath (1838-1918) The Sleeping Shepherd Watercolour, 48.5 x 58cm Signed and dated 1875 William McGrath was born in Cork and was educated at the Blue Coat School before moving to the Cork School of Art. It is thought he stowed away on a ship to New York and gradually made a name for himself as a painter of genre and landscape subjects. He made several return trips to Ireland circa 1879 into the early 1880’s. There were three pictures included in the 1883 Cork exhibition - ‘’Thinking it Over (The Land Question)’’, ‘’In the Green Fields of Erin’’ and ‘’The Seaweed Girl’’, which was included in the Whipping the Herring exhibition at The Crawford Gallery in 2006. Magrath is represented in several museums in the US, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York, while his portrait of fellow Cork Painter Thomas Hovenden is in the Museum of Fine Arts in San Fransisco. There are nine works by McGrath in the Crawford Art Gallery including ‘’A Son of the Soil’’.

He was educated at the Blue Coat School and the School of Art in Cork, after which he stowed away to New York where he was to eventually become an elected member of the Academy of Fine Arts in America. He returned to Ireland in the 1880s and made a sketching tour of West Cork and Kerry. Forever restless, he traveled through Europe. His watercolor Bacchantes was exhibited at the Crawford in 1893 and was said to portray "vivacious figures in the foreground ... admirably displayed against the bright blue of the Hellenic Sea" (Cork Examiner, 24 November 1893). Examples of his work are in the Crawford Gallery, Cork, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

      William Magrath (1838-1918) Man of the Period Oil on canvas, 33 x 23cm (13 x 9") Signed and dated 1880 The land question was at the centre of Irish politics throughout the 19th Century. The English establishment, prompted by English intellectuals from John Stuart Mill to Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, gradually accepted that continuing unrest in Ireland stemmed from a land ownership derived from the plantations of the 17th Century. Whereas most of the landlords were not individually bad they were trapped in a rotten system and with suicidal short-sightedness used their considerable political influence in England to delay or thwart land reform. Gladstone's conversion to home rule, the formation of the Land League by Michael Davitt behind which Parnell threw his support, American opinion, all contributed to the inevitability of land reform even if the path was never smooth. Man of the Period represents a former peasant tenant farmer now in possession of his land. There is pride and satisfaction as the intelligent man surveys his land, flocks and homestead. It is a hymn to the wealth and contentment possible for Ireland once the land is back in the hands of native small holders.
