Description

We are pleased to offer for sale this rare portrait by the Scottish artist David Nicholson Ingles, who has signed the painting in red to the lower right hand corner and dated it 1919. The painting depicts a waist length portrait of an Irish officer, wearing a double braces version of the Sam Browne belt, most often used by the infantry, and with the lapel badge depicting the Irish harp. He has black hair, parted in the middle in the fashion of the time and blue eyes. The stretcher of the painting bears the stencilled mark of a firm of Artists' Colourmen in Kildare Place, Dublin.

We say that this painting is rare because we have been unable to find any other portraits by this artist that have sold in the last twenty years.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
David Nicholson Ingles was born in Selkirk in Scotland in 1888, the youngest child of his parents. In the Census of 1891, they were living at Forest View, Forest Road, Selkirk, and were still there in 1901. By 1917, David was in Dublin and is sometimes referred to as an Irish artist. In 1919, the year he painted this portrait, he was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Hibernian Academy. He was a portrait painter. By 1930, he was back in London, where he died in Edmonton in 1933, at the very young age of 45.

He exhibited 4 paintings at the Royal Scottish Academy, 1 at the Glasgow Institute, 1 at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, and 25 at the Royal Hibernian Academy.

His somewhat sketchy biographical details are listed in The Dictionary of British Artists (Collectors' Club), where he is listed in David N. Inglis and The Dictionary of British Artists by Grant M. Waters, where he is correctly listed as Ingles.

He has one portrait in the National Collection, which is a portrait of William Booth, hanging in the National Portrait Gallery and one portrait owned by the National Trust, at Castle Ward, County Down.

The portrait has been newly framed in a 3 1/2" wide gilt frame. It will be supplied wired and ready to hang.
