ANOTHER ARTIST "SELFIE"

This is Sir William Orpen,
Irish artist in his studio
(oil on canvas, 1913),
a self portrait he created
standing in front of a large mural,
work in progress.

With furrowed brow,
his painter's smock 
and black skull cap,
looking quite serious.

Orpen was a prominent
Irish academic painter,
who died in 1931.

(This large oil painting
hangs in the main gallery
of the St. Louis Art Museum.)
