Lot 15 - LAKE GARDA (SCALIGER CASTLE AT MALCESINA) by Letitia Marion Hamilton Lot 15 Letitia Marion Hamilton LAKE GARDA (SCALIGER CASTLE AT MALCESINA)
Estimate: €7,000 - €10,000
Letitia Marion (May) Hamilton RHA, 1878-1964
LAKE GARDA (SCALIGER CASTLE AT MALCESINA)
Oil on canvas, 20 1/4" x 26 1/4" (51.4 x 66.5cm), signed.

Although Letitia Hamilton studied under William Orpen, her loose handling of paint and distinctive use of thick impasto align her more closely to Roderic O'Conor and to French artists like Dufy. She travelled widely on the continent, primarily Italy and France, opening her eyes to modernist styles of painting. Against the backdrop of aesthetic conservatism at home, she joined artists like Jack B Yeats, Paul Henry and Mary Swanzy in founding the Society of Dublin Painters in 1920 so that more impressionist and avant-garde artists would have a place to exhibit.

  Hamilton came from a long line of landed gentry, with her ancestor Charles Hamilton completing the construction of Hamwood House, in Dunboyne, Co Meath, in 1777. Letitia and her artist sister Eva were both born and reared at Hamwood.
