Joseph Patrick Haverty’s Group Portrait to lead Irish art sale
Joseph Patrick Haverty’s Group Portrait of a Family (circa 1850) will lead an auction of Irish art at Whyte’s in Dublin.
The lot is expected to make around $33,939-56,565 in the September 26-28 sale.
The auction house comments: “The attention to detail in the costumes of the figures in this scene is astonishing, while each figure is treated as a specific portrait.
“The painting, which measures 48 by 61ins., is presented in a wonderful gilt frame befitting for a fine period home.
“Based on the size and quality of the work it is possible it was exhibited at the RHA as A Family Group in 1851.”
