Orpen, Sir William, 1878-1931
[Cropped letter from William Orpen to Mrs St George with a sketch of the artist sitting by a fire on the reverse]
Handwritten letter which has been cropped to remove a portion of the text. In the section that remains, Orpen writes to Mrs St George that 'Bishop' was unable to 'sit' for his portrait today so he is quite happy to do nothing and sit by the fire. He also mentions that uncle Raymond cannot 'sit' until the week after next so he can work on 'Poppy's picture' next week. On the reverse is a sketch of the artist sitting by the fire.
