Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Lane paintings big controversy for six decades DUBLIN The story of Sir Hugh Lane and his pain- a bone of contention between Ireland and England for nearly 60 is a dire warning to anyone making a will to get every last detail legally sewn up. Lane was a bachelor art collector and man- about-town who flitted between homes in Dublin and London in the years before the First World War. Born in County he was linked by family or friendships with most of the great figures of Irish culture at that time. A man of scant he had a natural eye for pain- tings and a nose for a bargain. His esthetic sense was legen- dary he even chose a special shade of blue for his writing paper to set off the pink penny stamp then in use. In 1903. Lane began urging Dublin to establish a municipal gallery of modem art where works by leading Irish painters of the time could be displayed instead as he put being everywhere but in He was already endowing the National Gallery of where he became a with a feast of Old Masters. The project was agreed in principle and Lane amassed a nucleus of magnificent modern Continental mostly which he planned to present to the new gallery. Two works by Camille Corot were contributed by the Prince of later King George V. 6 for 86 SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE FOR OUR A temporary home was found for the collection in a Dublin town house and Lane was knighted in the Birthday Honors of 1909 for his services to art. But they all reckoned without the bureaucratic bumbling of Dublin City Cor- poration. The city fathers rejected one site after another for the permanent gallery. 'Vhen Lane commissioned the dis- tinguished architect Sir Edwin Lutyens to produce a mangificent design for a H- shaped gallery spanning the River the cor- poration's arguments reached the absurdity of complaining that Lutyens wasn't an Irishman. Lane finally lost patience. He withdrew his of 39 Continental pain- including Pierre Auguste Renoir's famous Les and placed them instead in the National Gallery in enshrining the gift as a bequest in his will. In he had another change of decided to forgive Dublin and added a codicil to his will transferring the Lane- collection back to Ireland on condition that a suitable building was provided within five years of his death. Lane at this time was 39. He did not bother to get the codicil properly witnessed. In he sailed for the United States to give evidence as an expert witness in a lawsuit. On .May he left New York for home aboard the Cunard liner which was sunk by a German torpedo six days later off the southwest coast of Ireland. Lane was one of the victims. His unexpected death signalled the start of a furious legal tussle between Ireland and England over his 39 pic- tures.
