Evie Hone is another artist who holds a prominent place in the development of modernism in Ireland in the early 20th century. It was when studying at the Westminster School of Art in London under Walter Sickert that she met fellow Irish contemporary Mainie Jellett. The two Dubliners subsequently travelled to Paris in 1920 where they worked under André Lhote and Albert Gleizes, and continued to visit Gleizes studio yearly through the 20s and exhibit in Paris. Learning the fundamentals of Cubism, Hone and Jellett brought these new ideas back to Ireland. Later, Hone's work diverged from pure abstraction and she turned her attention to stained-glass, in which she became highly accomplished. Her work possess a strong sense of form and colour which is evident in the present Still Life. 


Evie Hone est une autre artiste qui occupe une place importante dans le développement du modernisme en Irlande au début du XXe siècle. C'est lorsqu'elle étudiait à la Westminster School of Art de Londres sous la direction de Walter Sickert qu'elle a rencontré Mainie Jellett, une autre contemporaine irlandaise. Les deux Dublinois se sont ensuite rendus à Paris en 1920, où ils ont travaillé sous la direction d'André Lhote et d'Albert Gleizes. Ils ont continué à visiter le studio de Gleizes chaque année pendant les années 20 et à exposer à Paris. Apprenant les principes fondamentaux du cubisme, Hone et Jellett ramènent ces nouvelles idées en Irlande. Plus tard, l'œuvre de Hone s'éloigne de l'abstraction pure et se tourne vers le vitrail, dans lequel elle devient très accomplie. Ses œuvres possèdent un sens aigu de la forme et de la couleur, ce qui est évident dans la présente Nature morte
