Orpen, Sir William, 1878-1931
[Illustrated letter from William Orpen to Mrs St George with a sketch of both at an open doorway]

Graves Collection of William Orpen Letters
25.7 x 20.5 cm.
Ink and pencil on paper
Presented by Mrs Vivien Graves to the National Gallery of Ireland in 1974.
The figure standing inside the room is probably Mrs St George's husband Howard Bligh St George. When the St George family moved to London Mrs St George took an apartment at 25 Berkeley Square while Mr St George resided outside London. It would have been a surprise to Orpen and Mrs St George to return to her apartment and find her husband there.
