Lot 30: Susan Mary ('Lily') Yeats (1866-1949) LANDSCAPE AT NIGHT

signed lower right

Notes:

The present work is very close in design, colour and execution to Two Magpies on a Stone Wall, c.1934 which sold through Whyte's on 29 September 2008 as lot 123. In her catalogue note for that work Dr Nicola Gordon Bowe noted: "Lily Yeats first worked this distinctive design by her brother, the painter and graphic illustrator Jack Yeats, c.1910 in a version which remained in the Yeats' family collection until Anne Yeats' death. Before she and her sister Elizabeth ('Lolly') set up their independent Cuala Industries in 1908 in Churchtown, in the foothills of the Dublin mountains, both her brother and sister provided designs for Lily Yeats to execute. These she interpreted with the embroidered skills she had learnt and eminently practised during the six years she worked with William Morris's daughter, May, in London. In 1894, she left the Morris workshop and soon began exhibiting her own embroidered pieces, mostly focussing on artistically stylised flower compositions….. These were worked in the embroidery workshop she was invited to set up in 1902 by Evelyn Gleeson at her Dún Emer Guild in Dundrum, Co. Dublin. There she taught local, untrained girls a wide range of expressive stitches to emphasise the compositional and textural elements in the work they produced. Some pieces were framed, some incorporated into cushions, table or bed linen or furnishings, and some into clothing. Many were sold at nationalist art fairs and arts and crafts exhibitions in Dublin, London and New York, or given as presents far and wide." A rare and beautiful example of the Yeats' Cuala designs.

Lily Yeats first worked this distinctive designby her brother, the painter and graphic illustrator Jack Yeats,c.1910 in a version which remained in the Yeats’ family collectionuntil Anne Yeats’ recent death. Before she and her sister Elizabeth(‘Lolly’) set up their independent Cuala Industries in 1908 inChurchtown, in the foothills of the Dublin mountains, both herbrother and sister provided designs for Lily Yeats to execute.These she interpreted with the embroidered skills she had learntand eminently practised during the six years she worked withWilliam Morris’s daughter, May, in London. In 1894, she left theMorris workshop and soon began exhibiting her own embroideredpieces, mostly focussing on artistically stylized flowercompositions. The bold black lines delineating the stones in theforeground wall are reminiscent of the strongly graphic treatmentJack Yeats gave the sodality banner saints he designed for hissister to embroider for St. Brendan’s Cathedral, Loughrea, Co.Galway. These were worked in the embroidery workshop she wasinvited to set up in 1902 by Evelyn Gleeson at her Dun Emer Guildin Dundrum, Co. Dublin. There she taught local, untrained girls awide range of expressive stitches to emphasize the compositionaland textural elements in the work they produced. Some pieces wereframed, some incorporated into cushions, table or bed linen orfurnishings, and some into clothing. Many were sold at nationalistart fairs and arts and crafts exhibitions in Dublin, London and NewYork, or given as presents far and wide. Although some Cualadesigns were reworked a number of times, such as this, of whichthere are at least three known versions (see Yeats collection,National Gallery of Ireland), each slightly different in theircolouring and use of stitches, they are still rare, particularlywith such a direct provenance.
