Description: George Campbell RHA RUA (1917-1979) Clifden, Connemara Oil on board, 76 x 91cm (30 x 36'') Signed, also signed and inscribed verso Provenance: Previously in the collection of film director John Huston. George Campbell embarked on a series of themes in the 1960's and one of these was based on the town of Clifden. In the 1960's Campbell was fascinated with techniques and contrasting textures and liked to experiment with glazes and impasto on his chosen theme subject. Situated fifty miles from Galway, Clifden, or ''An Clochán'' meaning 'stepping stones' is the capital of Connemara, and is dominated by the neo gothic style Catholic Church, St Joseph's heading out the Galway road. In 1967, in his one-man exhibition at the Ritchie Hendriks Gallery, two works from Campbell's Clifden series were shown, ''Clifden, No. I'' and ''Clifden, Connemara No.II''. This work, ''Clifden, Connemara'' and another view of the town with the same title belong to this series and were in the collection of the film Director, John Huston. Filming, ''Moby Dick ''in Cork with Gregory Peck in the 1950's, Huston purchased a large Georgian house, St Cleran's near Loughrea, which became his home for eighteen years and where he housed his collection of Irish, Columbian, African art and sculpture. Executed circa 1967, this work shows the artist developing towards his final phase of painting, where form is depicted in interrelated abstract planes of colour. Painting with spontaneity, nervous brushwork is applied and shapes appear over houses in a pale green wash. The viewer's eyes move over the roof of the Anglican Christchurch and behind it, the larger Roman Catholic St. Joseph's Parish church. Soft mountains line the background with the twelve Bens shrouded in pale mist. The tall houses are square shapes that spread out over cool watery greens and greys with the harbour on the right. Campbell's work during this period had a characteristic underlying pattern of shapes and colour displaying a balanced rhythm, which may be related to his interest in music. The view might have been sketched from Errislannan Hill or from the John D'Arcy monument on the Sky Road. Making 'scratches' in his notebooks of his visits to Connemara, Campbell preferred to rely on his memory for these large works. In an interview in the 1960's, Campbell was asked did his paint on location. The artist replied, ''No. I never paint on the spot. If I go to Connemara I don't paint...the things I remember are the important things, a distillation of things.'' Karen Reihill Currently researching Gerard Dillon & Friends
