TWO drawings by the artist Paul Henry that have been unseen in Ireland for the last 70 years will be sold at auction in Dublin on Monday.

The Skibbereen-based art auctioneer, Morgan O’Driscoll, said the charcoal drawings were acquired directly from the artist Paul Henry and taken to New Zealand in the 1940s, and were subsequently sold to a private collector.

The drawings – one previously unknown – will be auctioned separately in Morgan’s Irish and International Art Auction at the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) at 6pm on Monday, September 14th.

The drawings by the Belfast-born artist were on view to the public in Morgan’s gallery at Ilen Street, Skibbereen, but are due to go on view at the RDS from 3pm on Friday.

It is the drawing of Boy With A Flute that was previously undocumented in books featuring Paul Henry’s work. Morgan said: ‘This might have an impact on the bidding because it is an opportunity for someone to acquire an excellent, undiscovered example of one of Ireland’s most celebrated artists.’

The second drawing of Woman With Fagots was made in the Spring of 1910 in Surrey, where Henry lived until the Summer of that year before relocating to Ireland.

Paul Henry lived on Achill Island between 1910 and 1920 and is renowned for his west of Ireland landscapes.

In 2013, a world record price for one of Paul Henry’s paintings was achieved when the Potato Gatherers sold for €400,000, but these drawings are not expected to fetch anything like that. It is estimated that they will each sell for between €15,000 and €25,000, but for art lovers everywhere it is enough to know that they have been restored through cleaning and returned to Ireland.
