Contrasting styles of art to suit all budgets

You can view Morgan O'Driscoll's sale online or in person, writes Des O'Sullivan.

Art-loving holidaymakers in west Cork can view Morgan O’Driscoll’s online sale of Irish art for themselves this August weekend.

Much of the viewing for the regular online sales by the Skibbereen-based auctioneer takes place online.

This one is on view throughout the weekend and the online catalogue at www.morganodriscoll.com lists 242 lots.

A small Paul Henry painting, Turf Stacks in Connemara, is one of more expensively estimated lots at between €15,000 and €25,000 but there is much that the average punter will find more affordable than this.

The sale offers a host of contrasting styles of Irish art.

It includes work by Markey Robinson, Tony O’Malley, Louis le Brocquy, George Campbell, Maurice Wilks, Basil Blackshaw, Gerard Dillon, Letitia Marion Hamilton, Gladys MacCabe, Majella O’Neill Collins, Alice Maher, Sean McSweeney, Arthur Maderson and many more.

There are etchings, linocuts and prints by Picasso, Miro, Sean Scully and le Brocquy and work by a number of sculptors.

The sale — which gets underway at 6.30pm on Tuesday — is open for viewing at O’Driscoll’s in Skibbereen from noon to 5pm today, tomorrow and Monday, and from 11am to 3pm on Tuesday.
