Sir Oswald Birley: The Nurse (1921)

The Nurse by Sir Oswald Birley (1889-1952), oil on canvas, 1921, Source: Philip Mould &Co

Hidden from view in the ownership of her descendants, Philip Mould will talk about the arrival from America of an exquisite, hitherto unknown portrait of an arresting 1920’s nurse by society painter Sir Oswald Birley. Painted in return for medical services, this masterpiece by Birley combines his brilliance as a portraitist with the sublime lessons of three hundred years of great old master painting.
