Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    With The Ritchie Hendriks Gallery, Dublin, October 1966, where purchased by
    Miss Watson

    "Patrick Collins has made a unique contribution to painting in our time by his power to evoke an aspect of Ireland which captures not only the primary image of the place and the people, but also its spiritual content. His grey-blue landscapes contain images of households, farms and figures, which emerge with a curious imprecise shape that is ultimately seen to be marked by folk-memory and by legend. Like a poet with words, his images penetrate areas beyond exact statement or description – they belong to the area of suggestion and imagination which cannot be identified outside the realm of his own idiom."

    (James White, Chairman of the Arts Council in the foreword to Patrick Collins by Frances Ruane).
