'Portrait of Dorothy Reilly', Albert Lipczinski
Albert Lipczinski, 'Portrait of Dorothy Reilly'
Dorothy Reilly was the wife of Charles Reilly, who held the Roscoe Chair of Architecture at Liverpool's University from 1904. This position placed him as the head of the Universityâ€™s School of Architecture and Applied Art.
Despite ideological differences between the Sandon Studios Society and the University, Reilly became a member of the Sandon. He and his wife were close to a number of the Sandon artists, including Lipczinski.
The original kimono worn by Dorothy Reilly in this painting is also featured in the exhibition. Read more about the kimono on our blog.
