Hutchison, Sir William Oliphant, PRSA
1889 - 1971
Portrait of a lady, watercolor, signed l/l,
15" x 11" unframed.
About the Painting: Very good condition.
About the Artist: Sir William Oliphant Hutchison (1889-1971) was President of the Royal Scottish Academy and a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. He exhibited at The Glasgow Institute (39 times), Walker Gallery (13), Royal Academy (25) and Royal Scottish Academy (63).
Note: A member of the artist's family contacted me to say this painting is unlike any of his other work! It bears his usual signature, and the fact that it's unlike his other work streghthens the attribution. It's likely an early painting, possibly executed during his student days.
