Eva Hamilton (Portraits, Landscapes, Watercolourist) (1876-1960)

Born in county Meath, the sister of Letitia Hamilton (1878-1964), the fiery red-headed Eva trained at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art and later at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.  A portraitist of some talent, her subjects included a number of Dublin luminaries such as Sir Thomas Moffatt, Oliver Fry and Sir William Mahon.

From her early twenties onwards she was a regular exhibitor with the Water Colour Society of Ireland, and in 1904, began contributing to the annual shows at the Royal Hibernian Academy, where she exhibited a total of 120 works over the next forty years. She also showed in combination with her sister Letitia Hamilton.

She was represented in the much vaunted Exhibition of Irish Art at Brussels in 1930.  As well as portraits, she continued to spend time painting landscapes in County Clare, Cork, Kerry and Mayo.

Along with Paul and Grace Henry, she was closely involved with the the Society of Dublin Painters, and also showed at the Irish Exhibition of Living Art, the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and the Fine Art Society in London.  Examples of her works are in the OPW, Dublin; the Ulster Museum, Belfast; the National Self-Portrait Collection in Limerick; and the Kilkenny Art Gallery Society.

Eva Henrietta Hamilton (1876-1960) The eldest of the famous Hamilton sisters of Hamwood, Dunboyne, she was educted at Alexandra College, Dublin and began exhibiting at the age of 22 with the WCSI. In 1904 she showed two portraits of her sisters at the RHA, at which institute she was to eventually exhibit 121 works in total. Three years later her younger sister Letitia enrolled at the Metropolitan School of Art, possibly to distract herself from the miseries of a failed romance, and Eva joined too, almost immediately. There Eva was heavily influenced by Orpen, although the effect was lightened somewhat when she later went on to study under Henry Tonks at the Slade. Eva and Letitia travelled, painted and exhibited together most of their lives, with Eva’s work consisting mainly of landscapes and group portraits which predominantly feature family members.
