2. George Russell’s portrait drawing
George William Russell (1867-1935) was born in Co. Amargh and moved to Dublin as a child. He later became a well-known poet, mystic, painter, economist and political figure in support of Irish nationalist causes.
He is often known by his pseudonym ‘AE’ which he derived from the word ‘Aeon’.
This 13.25 x 9.5in (34 x 24cm) pencil drawing, signed with Russell’s ‘AE’ monogram, depicts Irene Haugh, a poet herself who acted as his secretary and contributed much verse to the pages of Russell's Irish Statesman periodical.
She later published her own collection of poetry, The Valley of the Bells, with a preface by Russell.
The drawing is estimated at €600-800 at Whyte’s sale in Dublin on December 2.
