This original oil painting by David Coyne has caused a ripple of excitement in the Gallery.
In the coastal town of Kilkee the famous horseshoe bay is frequented by thousands of holiday makers every year. On either side of the bay you have points, known locally, as the East End and the West End. Both are popular for walks due to their Atlantic sea views and their incredible geology.
On the East End of Kilkee, the prominent Headland is known as ‘George’s Head’. Although the bay is actually protected from the raging Atlantic Seas by a number of reefs at it’s entrance, such as the Diamond Rock and the Duggerna Reef, these aren’t exactly visible in the same way as the proud and strong George’s Head, which makes such a striking impact visually, holds a certain stance in the town and stands tall against the waves like the towns own, unyielding body guard.

With all of this in mind, you can see why this painting from David Coyne has caused a stir here. Painted on board with oils using palette application, Coyne’s work is truly fabulous. The view is one of approaching the town rather than the usual vantage point and it allows for a unique and superb depiction of the fabulous Georges Head.

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
