Catalogue Note

Maurice MacGonigal had a long and successful career exhibiting at the Royal Hibernian Academy throughout his life, which he became President of from 1962-77. He initially trained under Sean Keating and as a teacher at the Metropolitan School of Art, Dublin he was an influential figure and was eager to promote a national school of painting. In his youth he was interred twice for his political associations with the Republican movement. Both the present work and lot 84 are typical of MacGonigal's bold, coastal seascapes.
