The aim of this blog is to give you an insight into the life and times of Stillorgan born artist Sir William Orpen. My research began nearly five years ago, when, just like Orpen I had a dream that Dublin would one day see fit to honor this fascinating Irish Artist. An exhibition of some 25 reproductions of Orpen’s works went on permanent display in Stillorgan Village Shopping Center in 2013 in the newly named Orpen Mall (1st floor). At the launch of that exhibition, the plans to erect a sculpture of Orpen were revealed. The Sculpture is now complete and was unveiled by Ronnie Wood of The Rolling stones at The Talbot hotel Stillorgan.
