The present work belongs to a group of painterly 9 by 14in. panels that Yeats made on his first visit to County Kerry, south west Ireland, in the summer of 1913. He visited partly with the object of learning Irish, but naturally the local landscape gave ready inspiration for painting. These date to relatively early in his career in oils and are typical of the period. There are, however, hints in the colouring and fluid brushwork of the breakaway expressionism that would define his late career.


-------------------------------------


La présente œuvre appartient à un groupe de petits panneaux que Yeats a réalisés lors de sa première visite dans le comté de Kerry, dans le sud-ouest de l'Irlande, au cours de l'été 1913. Il s'y rendit en partie dans le but d'apprendre l'irlandais, mais le paysage local lui donna naturellement une inspiration pour la peinture. Ces tableaux datent du début de sa carrière à l'huile et sont typiques de cette période. On y trouve cependant des indices, dans la coloration et la fluidité du pinceau, de l'expressionnisme marginal qui définira la fin de sa carrière.
