Catalogue Note

Frank McKelvey was born in Belfast and studied at the Belfast School of Art. Along with Paul Henry and James Humbert Craig (see lots 7 and 99), they belonged to a group of Northern artist who made their reputations painting the Irish landscape. The beautiful coastline of Co. Donegal inspired McKelvey to paint a series of seascapes, here the artist capturing the expansive beach of Marble Hill under a billowing summer's sky. Recognised in his lifetime, McKelvey became a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy and was amongst the first Academicians of the Royal Ulster Academy.
