Orpen, Sir William, 1878-1931
[Cropped letter from William Orpen to Mrs St George with a sketch of the artist and a 'real artist']
Handwritten letter on 8, South Bolton Gardens headed paper which has been cropped to remove the majority of the text. In the section that remains Orpen expresses his anxiety over meeting a client who expects him to look like a 'real artist'. Orpen illustrates this in a humorous sketch.
