St.Patrick’s Hall, Dublin Castle” oil on panel (37.5″ x 52″), sold at Sotheby’s (London) – 21/11/2018 for £195,000.

St Patrick’s Hall, Dublin Castle is a highly significant and historic work, providing a rare view of both the interior of St Patrick’s Hall in Dublin Castle in the early to mid-19th century as well as of the high society gatherings that took place within it. Such a social gathering as depicted here is all the more poignant when one considers that it is quite possible the work was painted during the course of the Irish Famine from 1845-49, providing a striking juxtaposition between the fortunes of the privileged and the mass suffering of the rural Irish population. – Extract from the Sotheby’s catalogue note.

Drury, Keith (1964)


Northern Irish artist.

Drury, Susanna (c.1698 – c.1770)

Susanna Drury was a mysteriously obscure but very able painter whose views of the Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim are landmarks both in Irish topographical painting and in European scientific illustration. Her exact birth and death dates are not known but she was the sister of a Dublin miniature painter named Franklin Drury, who died in 1771. The first trustworthy views of the Giant’s Causeway ever produced, Susanna Drury’s gouaches of 1739-40 won the £25 premium of the Dublin Society in 1740 when the artist’s identity was disclosed to the Society by Dean Gabriel Maturin, a prominent Dublin Huguenot. This raises the question of whether Susanna Drury had Huguenot connections or may have been trained on the continent. The groups of fashionably-dressed figures in both of Susanna Drury’s paintings show that as early as 1740 the Giant’s Causeway had become a tourist attraction. Ref: BBC.


One of a pair of Drury’s 1839 watercolours held in the collection of the Ulster Museum.


Above – a further pair of watercolours dating from the same period were sold at Christies, London, “Glin Castle: A Knight in Ireland” sale – 7/5/2009 for £23,750.00. They originated in the Duke of Leinster’s collection and it’s uncertain which pair of watercolours won the Dublin Society prize mentioned at the top of this entry.
