Gift of the Artist, 1969

 

Harold Greenhill was a member of the Manly Art Gallery Management Committee from 1964-1984 and was very much part of the fabric of this institution for over twenty years. A retrospective exhibition was held at the Gallery in 1979 in recognition of his long career as an art teacher and his valued association [1] with the Gallery.  In 1983, an exhibition of works by Harold and his two daughters Kay and Joy Greenhill titled Art in the Family was held at Manly Art Gallery and, years later in 1990 another retrospective was held at Woolloomooloo Gallery.

 

This work, Road to the Spit was painted while Harold Greenhill was living in Oyama Avenue, Manly where he had moved in 1942, the same year he won the NSW Travelling Art Scholarship.  Later, in 1954, he built a house in Castle Circuit, Seaforth where he lived with wife Beryl until his death in 1995. The subject matter of much of his work drew on his local surroundings and he sought inspiration from everyday life, the small scale industries in the area and the scenes he encountered and sketched.  His Post-Impressionist style paintings use flattened planes of colour and heightened perspective. His later works experimented with abstraction. You can also see the influences of contemporaries Roy de Maistre and Roland Wakelin in his works.

 

The Gallery holds nine paintings by Harold Greenhill, most of which reveal something of the social and built environment of this region:  Chinese Market Gardens, Manly Vale (1939), The saw mill, Harbord (1956), The Cargo Wharf, Manly Cove (1946) and Evening on Manly Ferry (c.1946). Two other works in the collection were painted on and shortly after a work and study tour through England, France, Italy and Spain between 1947 and 1950 (partly in the company of artists Frank Hodgkinson and Douglas Watson); Autumn sunshine on the Seine (1948) and Gondola Building Yard, Venice (1955).

 

Harold Greenhill attended the Royal Art Society evening classes and studied under Sydney Long and Antonio Dattilo-Rubbo from 1934-39, the Julian Ashton Art School from 1939-42 and the National Art School from 1943-44. He taught art high school for six years before becoming a lecturer at Alexander Mackie CAE from 1961-74. He won the Sulman Prize in 1950 and 1956 and the Dunlop Prize in 1952, among others and is represented in state, regional and private collections.

For Weaver Hawkins, painting was more important ‘than bread, sensual satisfaction and comfort’.  Born in South London in 1893, his pursuit in a career in the arts was encouraged strongly by his parents.  He studied art at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts before enlisting in the army as a rifleman in World War I, at the age of 22.

 

He sustained severe war wounds and was faced with a terrible decision whether to amputate his arms or risk his life.  A dedicated artist, he chose to risk his life to save his arms. The operations were successful and gave him partial use of his left hand and arm. After the war he studied full-time at Westminster School of Art for three years working hard to overcome his physical handicap.  He married Irene (Rene) Villiers in 1923 and they travelled for the next 12 years, living in France, Italy, Malta, Tahiti, New Zealand finally settling in Australia where he enjoyed the easy, informal life style.

 

In 1927 while living in Malta, Hawkins adopted the art-name Raokin. The name emerged from an Italian wine merchant’s attempt to spell Hawkins. His use of the name Raokin was a way in which he could severe his connection with ‘Hawkins’, the ‘crippled artist’ as he was known in England.

 

In 1936 the Hawkins’s family moved to Waterview Street, Mona Vale living there for the next 23 years.  This area was affectionately named ‘The Mad Half Mile’ for the great number of artist and writers living there, including at times, Arthur Murch and Raymond Glass. It is here that he established his working routine and began painting on masonite which he thought was better suited to the Australian climate than canvas and it was cheaper.   

 

Family life and the environs of Mona Vale became important motifs of Hawkins’ work. At the time, Mona Vale was an area of natural bush, tropical vegetation, market gardens and semi rural suburbs. The peaceful and verdant rendition of the area in A view of Newport, 1943 does not give insight into the harshness of the Australian climate or into the war time austerities that Hawkins was living under at the time.  His fixed British war pension did not take into consideration the high war time inflation and the family had to rely on their garden to provide them with fruit and vegetables and chickens! 

 

Weaver wrote to his brother in 1943 that his wife ‘Rene sticks to her gardening courageously, but it was a heart breaking job this year with almost continual drought. The earth is everywhere crying for rain, rain, and more rain’1. .  As a practitioner of different artistic styles, this work contrasts sharply with his bleak, moralistic modernist works, sometimes mural size, concerned with war fare and over population.

 

The Contemporary Art Society was an important part of his life, exhibiting his work from 1944 -1970, and for which he was Vice President and President.  He also lectured and reviewed exhibitions promoting contemporary art.

Jackson, James Ranalph

AUSTRALIAN, 1882 – 1975

Middle Harbour from Manly Heights, 1923

Oil on canvas, 77 x 92cm

Signed LRC, oil 'James R Jackson'

Purchased by the Gallery Committee, 1924

 

This is one of the most significant paintings in the gallery’s collection, being the first, and a major painting by Sydney artist, James Jackson (1882 – 1975). It formed the nucleus of the Manly Art & Historical Collection in 1924, having won the inaugural Manly Art Exhibition organised by the owner and editor of The Manly Daily, Joe Trenerry, who was also a patron of the arts and a local Manly Councillor. The competition paintings were exhibited in a large marquee in the park outside Manly Council Chambers.

Several artists and local residents successfully lobbied Manly Council to purchase Jackson’s winning painting in the hope that it would become the core for an art collection, eventually to be housed in Manly’s own Art Gallery. They requested that the Mayor do ‘all in his power to retain this beautiful picture for the citizens of Manly’ (letter dated 14 January 1924).  A citizen’s committee raised 100 pounds to purchase the work which lead to several other artists and donors contributing works to the fledgling collection.

Middle Harbour from Manly Heights, 1923 is one of many paintings in which Jackson depicts Sydney Harbour and its environs. It is an important work, both historically for the scene it captures and for what it demonstrates in his stylistic development. It depicts the sparse, open landscape of Seaforth before the new bridge that linked Mosman with Seaforth was built and which opened in February 1925. ‘The influence and integration of his broadening landscape style is evident in his use of wide and rhythmic land masses, leading the eye up Middle Harbour to distant suburbia – all under a hot, late-summer sky’ [1].

This painting is a joyful interpretation of Middle Harbour, revealing the artist’s passion for beauty and fascination with the landscape. His knowledge of pattern and mass gave him the skill to render the ‘atmosphere of the picture’ which resonates through the painting and remains a source for continuous pleasure for viewers.

James Jackson was a foundation member of the Australian Academy of Art and at the time he created this painting, he was a teacher at the Royal Art Society School. He was also married to fellow artist Dora Toovey, whose work is represented in the Gallery’s collection, and they were living in the house and studio Jackson built in Battle Boulevard, Seaforth overlooking the Spit.

Colin Lancely is renowned for his intensely coloured, mixed materials and semi-abstract imagery as seen with our two examples from the MAGAM collection. He is one of the only Australian artists that has consistently worked with collage in both two and three dimensions over the past four decades from the 1970s to the present.

 

Born in Dunedin, New Zealand Lanceley came to live in Australia at the age of two. In 1954 he attended the National Art School, Sydney and studied under John Passmore, Godfrey Miller, Peter Laverty and John Olsen.  He was one of a group of Annandale artists who initiated the ‘Annandale Imitation Realists’ whose aims were to use throwaway materials painted and decorated to create new and almost anti-art assemblages.

Fred Leist was born in Sydney. He studied at the Julian Ashton School in Sydney and established himself as an illustrator with various Australian magazines as well as an early career as a furniture and soft furnishing designer for the retailer, David Jones. He moved to London in 1908 for further study. After serving as an official Australian WWl artist, he continued to paint and exhibit in England and America.  In 1926 he returned to Australia where he became head teacher of painting at East Sydney Technical College (National Art School).

 

The Rivals was painted in about 1921 although the painting itself is not dated.  It was first shown at the Royal Academy, London and then at the National Art Gallery, Melbourne before being purchased by artist Albert Sherman for his private collection. Once again the Gallery is indebted to a benefactor when Mr Sherman gave the painting to the Gallery in 1953. 

 

Following an extensive showing at the Gallery, it was given pride of place hanging in the Manly Council Chambers. Unfortunately, a particularly severe storm caused significant water leakage throughout the building and the painting suffered considerable damage across the bottom.

 

There was some initial work done to restore the affected section, but as can be the case, the deterioration continued.  Conservation by its very nature is painstaking and the special techniques used are an expensive undertaking.  By 2001, the Manly Art Gallery & Museum Society in its role of supporting the Gallery, agreed to raise money towards the conservation of this significant painting in the Gallery’s collection, which involved this work in 2002.

Gift of the Artist, 1930

Sydney Long’s name appears on the Founders’ Roll of the Manly Art & Historical Collection, a testament to his support for the establishment of the Gallery, to which he donated this painting
Green and gold when it was finally opened in 1930. Painterly and atmospheric, with a contrasting dark foreground and bright waterscape beyond, Long is particularly noted for the rich, glowing colour harmonies found in this work.

 

This was probably one of the first works Sydney Long painted upon his return from living in Europe for fifteen years. It certainly is a transitional work; his early works are essentially the idyllic but natural landscapes of the Australian Impressionists. However, with the influence of the ‘art nouveau’ style and movement, his landscapes became almost two dimensional. You can see in this work, the beginnings of his sinewy, angular trees that were to become his trademark.

 

It is unclear whether the subject of this painting is Sydney Harbour or Narrabeen Lake. Long spent a lot of time, particularly later in his life, on the Northern Beaches. He became involved with a group of artists, writers and thinkers (including Christopher Brennan) who met at Newport in the 1920s. Later, his own students (including Bim Hilder, Donald Friend, Cedric Flower and Richard Ashton) were invited to weekend camps on his land at Narrabeen [1]. Frank Hodgkinson maintains that his understanding of the process of painting was due to Long: ‘It was Sydney Long who gave Hodgkinson the first taste of what real painting could be, when he visited Long at his caravan on Narrabeen Lake’ [2].

 

Long became a leading figure in the Australian art world, particularly in the field of etching which he had studied in London, becoming President of the Australian Painter-Etchers’ Society. The Gallery has one of his etchings, The old Customs House, Palm Beach, c.1928. He was also a foundation member of the Australian Watercolour Institute, President of the Sodiety of Artists 1899-1901, Fellow of the Royal Art Society School, Sydney along with Antonio Dattilo-Rubbo, and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW 1933-49. Sydney Long won the Wynne Prize in 1938 and 1940.
