Description:
Grace Henry (1868-1953) Strand Achill (1910-1912) Oil on canvas, 40 x 61cm (15¾ x 24'') Signed Grace Henry first went to Achill with her husband, Paul Henry, in the summer of 1910 and remained there - on and off- until 1919. To begin with they were both enthralled by life on the island, as for example her Top of the Hill, 1914-15 (Limerick Art Gallery) shows, but slowly Grace grew disenchanted by its limitations. The handling of paint on the sand and on the water illustrates the simplicity which typifies both the Henrys work of these years. One cannot be sure of the whereabouts of the scene, but it may represent the southern shores of the Corraun Peninsula. Alternatively Keel Strand is a possibility, although the distant mountains seem far distant from the Menawn Cliffs which dominate the area. Despite the representation of this picture, Grace Henry was arguably more avant-garde in her work than her husband and she certainly veered more towards abstraction. Dated 1910-12 on stylistic grounds and on the evidence of the signature. Dr S.B. Kennedy

Description:
§ Grace Henry, HRHA (Scottish, 1868–1953) Sailing boats on an Irish river signed lower right Grace Henry" oil on canvas 49 x 69cm (19 x 27in) Provenance: Private collection, Suffolk Other Notes: Emily Grace Henry (nee Mitchell) was born in Scotland in 1868. Her father Rev. John Mitchell was a Church of Ireland Minister. She was the youngest child of a family of ten and was educated at home. Henry left home in 1895 to pursue a career as an artist. The first record of her work being exhibited is with the Aberdeen Artists Society in 1896 and 1898. After her father's demise, Grace began her travels from 1899 throughout Holland and Belgium before settling in Paris where she studied at Académie Carmen and Académie Julian, also at Whistler's Studio. It was while here in Paris that she met Paul Henry and they married in London in 1903. The couple moved to Achill Island in 1910 and remained there until 1919 before their move to Dublin. While in Dublin the couple became founding members of the Society of Dublin Painters in 1920 alongside Letitia Marion Hamilton, Mary Swanzy, and Jack Butler Yeats. The Society offered an outlet for younger Irish artists to exhibit. Henry developed her own style through the 1920s and 1930s, spending time in France and Italy. She studied with André Lhote from 1924 to 1925. Lhote was a cubist painter who also worked with Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone, and Mary Swanzy. Henry painted in Venice and in the environs of the Italian lakes, painting with the fauvist style, with free brushwork and vibrant colours. Upon the outbreak of World War II, she returned to Ireland. Her work was regularly displayed at the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) before becoming an honorary member in 1949 and she also had solo shows at the Waddington and Dawson galleries. Cleaned.
