Catalogue Note

Letitia Marion Hamilton was a landscape and genre painter whose work is characterised by richly expressive brushwork. She studied at the Metropolitan School of Art in Dublin under William Orpen, under Frank Brangwyn in Belgium, and at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. She was amongst the founding members of the Society of Dublin Painters (along with other leading Irish artists including Jack B. Yeats and Paul Henry). The artist notably won the bronze medal in the arts segment at the London Olympic Games in 1948.
