        Nov. 16, 2019

        PROPAGANDA POSTER WWII UK HOME FRONT PICNIC RODRIGO MOYNIHAN CEMA

        Est: £120 - £240

        Original vintage World War Two propaganda poster commissioned by the C.E.M.A. (Council for the Encouragement of Music and the Arts - later to become the Arts Council of Northern Ireland), it features a painting by the artist Rodrigo Moynihan (1910-1990) titled 'May - A Picnic' and it was originally intended to be hung "where war workers congregate". In 1940, during the Second World War, the Council for the Encouragement of Music and the Arts (CEMA), was appointed to help promote and maintain British culture. Chaired by Lord De La Warr, President of the Board of Education, the Council was government-funded and after the war was renamed the Arts Council of Great Britain. The interest in the arts during World War II led to the first government subsidy of the arts in Britain with the founding of the Arts Council in 1946, championed by Jenny Lee. Moynihan was born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, in 1910, to Herbert James Moynihan, a fruit broker, and Maria (née de la Puerta). His Anglo-Spanish family moved to London in 1918 and then to Wisconsin. A winter in Rome 1927–1928 inspired him to devote himself to art, and in 1928 he started studying at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. In the 1930s he gained a reputation as a pioneer of abstract painting in England as a member of the Objective Abstraction movement.[4][5] Moynihan was later attracted to social realism and became associated from 1937 with the Euston Road School. War artist Moynihan served in the British Army from 1940 to 1943, first in the Royal Artillery and then doing camouflage work. Following an injury, he was given a full-time salaried commission by the War Artists' Advisory Committee, WAAC, having previously completed a number of short-term contracts for the Committee. He completed a number of portraits of ATS and senior, male, military figures for this contract and also for subsequent shorter WAAC contracts. Moynihan was appointed an Associate Member of the Royal Academy in 1944. After the war, he was professor of painting at the Royal College of Art 1948–1957, and was elected a full member of the Royal Academy in 1954. At this period, he was in demand for official portraits, and executed commissions of amongst others Princess Elizabeth (1946) and Prime Minister Clement Attlee (1947). He changed direction from 1957, resigning from the Royal College of Art and the Royal Academy and returning to abstraction, working outside England in Europe and North America. From 1971 onwards he was inspired to return to figurative painting in the form of large-scale studio still-lives, unordered, unarranged and apparently random. One of these such paintings was, The shelf, objects and shadows - front view (1982–83). This return to figuration also drew him to move back towards portraiture – with portraits of friends leading to renewed commissions by the end of the 1970s. Notable portraits of this period include Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (1983–85; National Portrait Gallery, London) and Dame Peggy Ashcroft (1984; National Portrait Gallery). Year of printing: 1943, country of printing: UK, designer: Rodrigo Moynihan, dimensions (cm): 76x101.5.

        § Rodrigo Moynihan, RA (British, 1910-1990) Self portrait signed and dated 'R Moynihan 38' (lower right) oil on canvas h:38 w:28.50 cm Other Notes: Rodrigo Moynihan began his painting career in the wake of a trip to Rome in the winter of 1927-1928. He had moved to London prior to this and began his education at the Slade School of Fine Art in 1928. In the 1930s, he was a member of the Objective Abstraction movement, but became associated with the Euston Road School from 1937 onwards, turning instead to figurative art and social realism. 'Self-Portrait' (1938) was painted in the years immediately preceding his appointment to the British army (1940-43), during which time he was commissioned by the War Artist's Advisory Committee to paint several military portraits. Painted just before he enlisted, Moynihan portrays himself in the guise of a soldier - the low viewpoint and boldly frontal pose conveying an image of strength. In 1948, Moynihan became a professor at the Royal College of Art and received several important portrait commissions, including the then Princess Elizabeth and Prime Minister Clement Atlee.
