Spirit of Donegal : Images of Donegal by Derek Hill and Friends

Is iomaí duine a thugadh cuairt ar Derek Hill ina theach cónaithe i Mín a’ Lábáin, agus go mionminic, is ealaíontóirí eile a bhíodh iontu. Bhí sé ina thraidisiún aige féin agus a chuidcuairteoirí imeacht leo ag péinteáil ‘en plein air’. Nuair a bhíodh obair an lae curtha i gcrích, baghnách leo malartú a dhéanamh ar na saothair ealaíne. Ar an dóigh seo, chruinnigh Derek Hillbailiúchán galánta pictiúirí de Dhún na nGall a rinne ealaíontóirí eile. Is é an rud is suimiúla fáseo ná gur cuireadh na saothair seo i gcrích go minic i stíl nach raibh aitheanta againn marghnáth stíl an ealaíontóra a bhí ar cuairt. Cuireann na saothair seo réimse éagsúil leitheadachd’íomhaí Dhún na nGall os ár gcomhair.

Derek Hill had many visitors to his house at Churchill and very often other artists. The tradition wasthat he and his visitors would set off to paint together ‘en plein air’. After the day’s work they wouldthen swap the art works. This way Derek Hill gathered a beautiful collection of paintings of Donegalby other artists. The interesting thing here is that these works quite often were executed in a styleother than the established style familiar to us by the visiting artist. These works offer us a varied andbroad range of ‘visions’ of Donegal
