    This may be A Mountain Village, Kerry (Kennedy, Paul Henry: with a catalogue of the Paintings, Drawings, Illustrations, Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 2007, p.271, number 863), a picture that Henry first exhibited in his 1935 Dublin exhibition. Judged stylistically it certainly dates from around this time. A Village in the Mountains is numbered 1238 in S. B. Kennedy’s ongoing cataloguing of Henry’s oeuvre and we are very grateful for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
