My Dear Big O – Portrait of a Portrait
by Bill Crow
Leiston Press paperback (signed by author)
By another Crow not so far from our own, here is the modest tale of two considerable egocentrics – the painter William Orpen and his distraction, G. Stuart Ogilvie – based around an exchange of letters before the Great War. With reproductions of the illustrated correspondence and musings on the origins of Pan as a muse, we learn why the founder of ‘modern’ Thorpeness – idyllic coastal neighbour of Benjamin Britten’s Aldeburgh – is depicted by his friend as having horns. Combining a mystery with art and poetry, the story hops back and forth from London to “rustick” Suffolk and attests to much mischief on the Meare.
