Sotheby’s annual Irish Art sale will be led by a major single-owner selection of works from the Joseph and Brenda Calihan Collection. In 16 oils, the Calihan Collection represents a superb distillation of Irish art across a hundred-year period, from the mid-19th to the mid-20th centuries. Led by Jack B. Yeats’ timeless and romantic Sunday Evening in September, the group is characterised by the exemplary and individual qualities of each piece. Acquired in the 1990s with passion and discernment, we are delighted to present the collection at auction to a new generation of collectors.
Alongside the Calihan Collection, we have paintings by Roderic O’Conor, Paul Henry, John Lavery, Louis le Brocquy, works from the White Stag Group and a strong selection of contemporary paintings.
We look forward to welcoming you at our preview exhibitions at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin and Sotheby’s London. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like further information about any works.
