Description

St.George Hare RI ROI 1857-1933 Oil Portrait
We are very pleased to offer for sale this very well executed portrait oil on canvas by the Irish artist St. George Hare, who has signed the painting HARE is the lower left hand corner.

The portrait depicts an Irish gentleman, with a twinkle in his eye, who is wearing a brown jacket, an ochre striped waistcoat, with a pocket watch, who is seated in an armchair with carved arms. There was in the past a label on the back of the canvas which may have given the name of the sitter, but unfortunately this was removed or fell off at some stage in the past.

St. George Hare was born in Limerick in Ireland on 5th July 1857, the son of an Englishman. He studied at Limerick School of Art under Nicholas Brophy, before going to London in 1875 to become a student at the Royal Academy Schools at South Kensington.

He began exhibiting both oils and watercolours in his early 20s, showing at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1881 and subsequently at the Royal Academy with 'The Little Mother' (32 exhibits), and the RI (121), ROI (143), Royal Society of Artists in Birmingham (15) and the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool (39).

He painted in oils, watercolours and pastels. He was a painter of portraits - the Hoare family were his patrons - historical narrative, especially featuring nude women e.g. 'Victory of Faith' and genre.

He lived most of his life in London. He was a founder Member of the Chelosea Arts Club in 1891. In 1892 he was elected a full Member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and in the same year, a full Member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters.

While a student at the RA Schools, he lodged in Kings Road Chelsea. In census records for 1901, he was living at 13 Milton Chambers Chelsea, with his wife Charlotte, his son Sydney and a servant and in 1911 at 134 Kenilworth Court, Lower Richmond Road, Putney. He died on 30th January 1933 and his death was registered in Chelsea.

He is listed in The Dictionary of British Artists (Collectors' Club), The Dictionary of Victorian Painters by Christopher Wood, The Dictionary of British Artists of Grant Waters and his London exhibitions up to 1893 are listed in Graves Dictionary (58).

Examples of his work may be viewed on google and, in the flesh, at The V & A, National Gallery of Ireland, National Gallery of Victoria, Australia, the National Trust Stourhead (Seat of the Hoare Family), Limerick City Art Gallery. There 14 paintings of his in the National Collection - see BBC Your Paintings. Auction results are available at the usual sites.

The painting has been reframed in a 5" gilt frame, as its old frame was very narrow and in poor condition. It will be supplied wired and ready to hang.
