Catalogue Note

oil paintings on this large scale of orlando himself are uncommon. Due to the heavy work-load necessitated by the style of her books, Hale rarely got the chance to produce large-scale finished paintings relating to the characters in her books. During the late 1950s and 1960s she did produce a series of large oil-paintings, mostly of "fishes and birds in watery landscapes"  for the antiquarian booksellers Stevens and Brown in London, all of which sold immediately.
