since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
Augustus John was a very sleazy, albeit talented character. William Orpen was a bit sleazy and a lot talented himself. I hope Orpen's portrait did John justice.
It is now considered one of Orpen's finist portraits but John didn't like it at all.
Eh........William Orpen was Irish!
Very true Anon but since I'm part Irish I like to stray a bit lol
