Sir William Orpen

    2,500

    With a similar study verso

    Pencil, 12 by 8 3/4 ins (30 by 22 cm)

    Provenance: the estate of Maurice Bradshaw (secretary of the Goupil Gallery)

     

    This charming double-sided drawing can be dated to c.1902-04 and reflects Orpen's interest in the observational quality he saw Dutch genre painting. It appears to relate in particular to the work The Valuers from 1902 which shows an overblown group of art experts assessing the value of a painting in a well-appointed commercial gallery.
