After the Bombardment, 1916” oil on canvas (19.5″ x 27.5″) – National Gallery of Ireland.

Kelly’s gunpowder shop on the corner of Sackville Street and Bachelor’s Walk was one of the several premises on Dublin’s main thoroughfare commandeered by the Volunteers on Easter Monday 1916. Holed up there were members of the so-called ‘Kimmage Garrison’ and the Fingal Battalion. The initial assault on the building, known among the Volunteers as ‘Fort Kelly’, began early on Wednesday 26 April. By the end of the week, Kelly’s had been reduced to a shell, and only the facades of many other buildings remained. In McGoogan’s painting, snipers on the second floor of Kelly’s exchange fire with soldiers in improvised armoured cars (the first vehicles of their kind ever used in combat). The painting seems at first glance otherwise uninhabited. A closer investigation, however, reveals a body lying on O’Connell Bridge, a grim acknowledgement of the human cost of the conflict. – National Gallery of Ireland.

McGuire, Michael (1956)

Michael McGuire, originally from Co Kerry, now lives in Wexford and has painted there full-time since 2007. His work is strongly grounded in the plein air (outdoor from life) tradition, so the paintings have immediate impact with a strong sense of authentic light. He has always had a love of nature and is drawn to wild, remote places. But, as a painter mainly concerned with capturing light effects, he also enjoys the challenge of finding beauty in mundane subject matter.
