KEATING, NOW THAT YOU’VE SEEN THE BOOK….

033Several portraits by Seán Keating offer bidders a chance to snap-up an original artwork by an artist who has been making headline news this spring. Following the acclaimed publication by Dr Éimear O’Connor, demand for Keating’s work is likely to sore. Lots 33 to 36, guiding €1,500 to €5,000 represent his skill in the area of portraiture. Character is key to all four lots; the female sitters (one from the Bank of Ireland Collection) show the contrast of youth and old age while a portrait of Dan Breen nods to the artist’s interest in political life.

Illustrated:
Seán Keating PRHA HRA HRSA (1889-1977)
ARAN WOMAN (also known as THE MATRIARCH), c.1952-1955
pastel and conté on tinted paper
Estimate:€3,000-5,000 – Important Irish Art Auction, 27th May.
Online catalogue available at http://www.whytes.ie
