      Michael Augustine Power O'Malley (1870-1946)

      Est: €3,000 - €5,000

      Michael Augustine Power O'Malley (1870-1946) Fishing Boats in a Harbour Oil on canvas, 63.5 x 76.1cm (25 x 30'') Signed Provenance: John P. Reihill, Deepwell, Blackrock, Co. Dublin Until a few decades ago the painter Power O'Malley was better known in America than in Ireland, with many of his paintings included in prestigious collections there. Born in Co. Waterford in 1878, Power O'Malley went to study in France and Italy, though exactly where is not clear. Nor is it known when he emigrated to the United States. After his arrival, he studied painting under Walter Shirlaw (1838-1909), Robert Henri (1865-1929) at the National Academy of Design, New York. He settled in Scarborough, New York. Power O'Malley returned several times to painting in the West of Ireland, especially on Achill. He won first prize for landscape painting at Aonach Tailteann in 1924. He was invited to participate in the Brussels Exhibition of Irish Art in 1930 and exhibited a painting entitled This is my Beloved Son. An exhibition of his paintings was held at the Crawford Municipal School of Art, Cork in 1940 and one of the works on show Himself and Herself, was purchased for the School of Art by the Gibson Committee. In the U.S.A., Power O'Malley established a reputation as a fine painter at the San Antonio Exhibition, Texas in 1927 and he exhibited again there in 1929. He spent some time in Hollywood working as a scenic artist. He painted a number of murals including one at the Sleepy Hollow Club, Scarborough, New York. His work was acquired by American museums and galleries, among them the Philips Collection, Washington; the Library of Congress, Washington; Fort Worth Museum of Art, Texas; the Whitt Museum of Art, San Antonio, Texas; and the Museum of Modern Irish Art, Vassar College, New York. He died on July 3rd 1946 in New York. This painting was carried out on one of the artist's return trips to the Western seaboard. The rosy glow of the palette would suggest early morning or perhaps the return of the boats to the harbour in the evening after the day's catch has been made. The perspective and relative disposition of one boat to the next is compositionally satisfying and contrasts effectively with the ''frieze'' of boats further out in the harbour with their bright reflections and glowing colours. Stylistically, Power O'Malley's work falls between that of Seán Keating and Patrick Tuohy who also painted views of the West of Ireland during the same years.

      Michael Augustin Power O'Malley (1878-1946) Quay at Roundstone Oil on canvas, 63 x 75cm (24.75 x 29.5'') Signed Exhibited: This is thought to have been exhibited at the Jersey City Museum, New Jersey in 1935 . Born in Co.Waterford, Michael Agustin Power O'Malley studied art in France and Italy before finally settling in America where his teacher was Robert Henri who had painted on Achill. O'Malley returned to Ireland periodically and was awarded first prize in landscape painting at Aonach Tailteann in 1923. He exhibited in a group show of Irish art in Brussels in 1930. There were 38 works by him included in the 1935 New Jersey show including titles such as ''A Donegal Bog'',''Aran Fisherman'' and ''Spanish Parade - Galway'' which shows he traveled all along the West Coast. Other artists included in the New Jersey Show were Jack B. Yeats, Sean Keating and George Russel. He exhibited several paintings with an Irish theme at the Beaux Arts Gallery, London in 1939 such as ''The Kerry Piper'' '' The Connemara Man'' and ''Clearing up Achill'' . The critic Royal Cortissoz writing in The New York Herald Tribune wrote '' Mr O'Malley has found light and air in Ireland and has got them into his pictures .... A more winning transcription of the Irish scene has not come out of any man's studio''.
