This exhibition came about following a request from the Court Gallery, Somerset, for inclusion of The Ark in Storm in their exhibition of women artists who studied under André Lhote. Traditionally known as ‘Man and Mountain’, the title was a little too obvious and open to question. However, in his 1989 catalogue, Brian Kennedy suggests ‘The Ark in Storm’ as an alternative title for another work in the Ark series of paintings but it now appears that this is not the case. The flash of lightning across the mountain in the current painting indicates a storm and provides a more convincing match to the title. With search engines working overtime, other discoveries followed. Noah and his family are now identified in The Images, another work from the Ark series, and a standing figure has been identified as Christ Draped in Purple, a scene from the Passion. The artist’s masterpiece, Our Lady of the Apocalypse, is explored in detail, panel by panel. Another exceptional work, Strange Shore, is presented as a representation of everyday life on Aran and The Sleepers have been identified as women waiting for a boat on Aran.
