78 64 PAUL HENRY RHA (1877-1958) Portrait of a Lady (c.1910-14) Oil on canvas board, 22 x 13cm (8¾ x 5'') Signed; also inscribed on reverse in the artist's hand 'For Dear Grandmama from Paul' This is an early Paul Henry, as the dot in the signature indicates. The age of the woman is uncertain, but given the form of the signature, as the general hesitancy shows, it is evidentially early in Henry's career, possibly around c.1910-14. It was certainly done before he went to Achill Island. The portrait is numbered 1345 in S. B. Kennedy's on-going cataloguing of Paul Henry's oeuvre. Dr S.B.
