    Dated 1917-18 on stylistic grounds. Although one cannot be certain, this may be The Long Road, a painting that Henry showed in his exhibition, Pictures by Mr.& Mrs. Paul Henry, at the Magee Gallery, Belfast, from 12-23 March 1918. The setting appears to be the view north-eastwards from Lough Fee, near Leenane in Co. Galway, where Henry often painted in these years. If that is the case, Killary Harbour must lie in the valley between the foreground hills and the distant mountains, which will be the Mweel Rea Mountains.

    We are grateful to Dr S.B. Kennedy for compiling this catalogue entry.
