Please note the auction of 44 Fitzwilliam Square: Works from the Estate of Patrick Kelly has been rescheduled to take place on 10 November 2020 at Sotheby's London.
The collection has been enthusiastically received by the public and collectors alike since its announcement, and we look forward to the exhibition and auction of the works in November. For any questions in the interim, please do not hesitate to contact Arabella Bishop in Dublin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Charlie Minter in London (email@example.com).
An avid collector, Patrick Kelly furnished his Dublin home with a stunning array of Irish pictures recognising the tradition of Irish painting from the 18th to 20th centuries and encompassing works by William Ashford, George Mullins, Paul Henry, Roderic O’Conor, Jack B. Yeats and William Scott, among others. These paintings were wonderfully complemented in the interiors of 44 Fitzwilliam Square, a Georgian townhouse which he lovingly restored, with fine Georgian and Regency furniture, silver and decorative arts, which were amassed by Kelly from auctions and dealers over the past three decades. Highlights include a pair of important George II Irish mirrors supplied to Sankey Winter, Dean of Kildare and marquetry tables attributed to William Moore of Dublin.
The collection reveals Patrick’s passion for Irish art and his discerning eye, with pictures and furniture beautifully married within the elegant surroundings of 44 Fitzwilliam Square.
