Fine. Rare. Pyle 2015 & 2016.
First published by Dun Emer about 1906, these attractive prints were taken over by Cuala in 1908 and were a mainstay of its print catalogue for over 60 years. Typical of Yeats’ work at the time, they adopt an elongated format, they capture the carefree atmosphere of a race meeting with characteristic humour on a West of Ireland strand, such as Jack Yeats must often have seen during his childhood in Sligo. The designs were issued as a line-block print, hand-coloured by one of the craftswomen, Molly Gill or Eileen Colm, at the Cuala Press. Original paintings and watercolours by Yeats are now out of the reach of most collectors, but these attractive prints still offer an affordable and desirable alternative.
