THE HANAN COLLECTION LOTS 134 - 148 A friendship conducted through correspondence existed between Dunedin lawyer, Mark Hanan and the Anglo-Welsh artist Sir Frank Brangwyn RA. Brangwyn represented Britain at the Venice Biennale and was the first artist to be given a retrospective exhibition at the Royal Academy during his lifetime. Along with Diego Rivera and Josep Maria Sert, he was chosen by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. to decorate the concourse of the RCA Building in New York City with murals. A sequence of large murals on canvas (originally from Horton House, Northamptonshire) is held by the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and Te Papa Tongarewa. Well aware of the austerity imposed by rationing in post war England, Hanan would regularly send parcels of New Zealand products such as woollen clothing and cheeses to his artist friend. In turn, Brangwyn sent Hanan paintings by both himself and other artists whom he admired and collected. This exchange continued until the artist's death in 1956. The largest collection of Sir Frank Brangwyn paintings in New Zealand is permanently held by the Hanan family. In 2012 the collection was loaned to the Dunedin Art Gallery for a grand retrospective exhibition. A small selection of works from the collection are now offered for sale. In 2006, Hanan's daughter Susie attended the exhibition commemorating the 50th anniversary of Brangwyn's death which toured the UK.

Description:
John Glover OWS (British, 1767-1849) Goodrich Castle on the Wye, Herefordshire watercolour with gum arabic 45 x 65cm (17 11/16 x 25 9/16in). Footnotes Glover is perhaps best remembered for the fact that, in 1831, he emigrated from England to Tasmania (then Van Diemen's Land) and became one of the few English artists to record the landscapes of that island in the first half of the 19th century. However, before leaving England he had a successful career both as a drawing master and as an exhibiting artist who showed regularly at the Royal Academy. He worked equally well in watercolour and oil, but his watercolours were particularly effective in rendering the subtle effects of light. The view of Goodrich Castle on the Wye, Herefordshire and Fishermen on the Brent, Twyford offered in the present collection show his aptitude in the way he shows the light diffused through the leaves of trees, his creation of a dark foreground against which the paling distance gives a sense of the receding landscape and the reflections he paints on a mirror-smooth patch of lake water which give way to parts caught by the breeze. He evolved a characteristic technique for painting foliage by twisting the end of his brush into pointed prongs. These give a kind of crow's-foot effect to his leaves and what is known as his 'split-brush' technique is a hallmark of his work.

Description:
JOHN GLOVER (1767 - 1849) LEATHE'S WATER, SKIDDAW AND SADDLEBACK IN DISTANCE, c1816-17 oil on canvas 75.0 x 111.0 cm inscribed on old label verso: Leathe's Water / Skiddaw and Saddleback in distance / J. Glover Kurt Albrecht Collection, Melbourne, since the 1970s Thence by descent Private collection, Melbourne John Glover couched his paintings in a golden glow reflecting the age of their genesis, a similarly golden time often referred to as the age of enlightenment. A devoted classicist and admirer of the great French master Claude Lorrain, Glover invested all his art with an order and beauty that gives it an ageless serenity. Moreover, his exactness of observation was such that his paintings of Van Diemen's Land of the eighteen-thirties into the forties are among the first to realize the unique peculiarities of its landscape, a kind of untouched paradise of man and nature at one. Glover's fame, however, was not Australian made, for when he came to the Antipodes in 1831 he already had an established reputation, being well known as the 'English Claude'. He dressed his art in the then fashion of the Picturesque with its delight in the magnificence of mountain landscapes touched by the sublime, the orderliness of man made pastoral calm the more pronounced by contrast with the rugged wilds. Leathe's Water, Skiddaw and Saddleback in Distance of about 1816–17 is a classic example. It's very grandeur inspires a similar mood as the eye explores the splendour of the panorama and the civilized touches nestling within. The English Lakes District has long appealed to the painter and poet. In 1783 Thomas Gainsborough painted there; also J.M.W. Turner and Constable, who toured the district in 1806. Glover's passion resulted in many visits between 1793 and 1824, eventually settling at Blawick Farm on Ullswater near the village of Patterdale. 1 Of the peak of Helvellyn, Britain's third highest mountain, William Wordsworth was inspired to write – 'From the watch-towers of Helvellyn: Awed, delighted, and amazed!' 2 In Glover's painting the mighty Helvellyn is seen to the east, viewed from the south, Raven Crag rises to the west of Leathe's Water, and mounts Skiddaw and Saddleback are in the further distant east. Amidst such natural splendour, Glover engaged a clarity and high finish to enable the achievements of human endeavour also to be seen, not insignificant within such wonders. A boatman plies still waters, sheep graze on cleared land, and a home finds its place among the woods – believed to be Dalehead Hall, the ancestral home of the Leath family since Elizabethan times of the seventeenth century. Glover envelops all in a mood of calm and classical order, the nobility of man nestled within that of nature in the sparkling light and wondrous beauty of the landscape of Cumbria. 1. When Glover settled in Tasmania, he called his property 'Patterdale' after this village in the Lakes District. 2. On Her First Ascent to Helvellyn DAVID THOMAS
