    A painting titled Snow in Connemara is listed as being exhibited in the Maxwell Galleries, San Francisco in 1954. Dillon exhibited a number of Connemara pictures at the Maxwell Galleries which would indicate that the present work dates from this period. From a commercial point of view, it may not have been 'Irish' enough for American tastes in the 1950's - they were more accustomed to traditional landscapes by the likes of Paul Henry.

    We are grateful to Karen Reihill for her assistance in cataloguing this work.
