Lovers of the geology of the Loop Head Peninsula, will be aware of its supreme significance in terms of the strata that can be viewed from above sea level. The result of many millions of years of layering and pressure, and having emerged from the sea over the generations, the extraordinary layers of rock are the subject of many a trip by geologists and nature lovers in general, to view, map and learn from what they can see around the Headland.

This natural phenomenon is so beautifully captured here in oils by the uber talented Ivan Daly. His detail but also his handling of the angle, the composition of the painting, the drama and movement of the ocean below, all are superb.

Ivan has an upward trajectory, is showcasing in galleries around Ireland and having rapidly carved a niche and style that is intrinsically his, he is fast becoming hugely sought after. Discerning collectors will watch closely.

Ivan Daly – Irish Contemporary artist – original oil on canvas – large piece – hugely collectable artist – loop head – framed work – headland – seascape – off collectors’ interest


Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

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.
