WILLIAM ORPEN SIGNED ALBUMEN PRINT OF THE ARTIST.
“To Hollander with regards William Orpen, 1931”.
Auction at Lyon & Turnbull 19th June 2019. Estimate £500 – £700.
UPDATE – Lot 352 – UNSOLD
This painting of Orpen by Francis Hodge looks remarkably like the photo.  

Sir William Orpen by Francis Hodge (one of a few versions).

The date 1929 – 31 implies that Hodge did the painting in 1931 from a 1929 photograph.

Orpen died in 1931 and as he was quite ill that year, it’s unlikely he had his photo taken during his illness.
Anyone got any idea who Hollander was?
