I know the Orpen and have a black and white image of it but I'd love to see it in colour if you know what sale it was in - maybe they had an illustrated catalog. I'm sending  an image of another Augustus John oil he did of her in 1919 (it's in the Laing Gallery, Newcastle-upon-Tyne). Thanks for the information on the Orpen, I'd like to contact the new owners.

Special thanks to Paul Darby, from Canada, a friend of the JSS Gallery, for sending me the image and note.
