Rare self portraits by Tony O’Malley; views of Kinsale Harbour by Nancy Wynne-Jones; sculptured hawks and doves by Conor Fallon; and works by artists associated with the St Ives School, such as Peter Lanyon, Albert Irvin, and John Tunnard, all feature in the collection of Nancy Wynne-Jones and Conor Fallon at James Adam next Wednesday, June 23.
The collection of this painter and sculptor — two of Ireland’s best-known artists, who married in 1966 — is sure to cause much interest.
The 102 lots on offer include works by Patrick Hayman, Terry Frost, Denis Mitchell, Breon O’Casey and Alan Lowndes, Sean McSweeney, Doreen Vanston, and Melanie le Brocquy.
In a catalogue introduction, Brian Fallon observes that they did not set out deliberately to build up a collection, saying that it more or less happened quite naturally over several decades.
“It amounts virtually to a chart of their own very distinguished careers and wealth of artistic contacts, both individually and jointly,” he writes
Viewing at Adam’s, St. Stephen’s Green, is from 2pm to 5pm tomorrow and from 10am to 5pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
The sale takes place at 6pm on Wednesday.
