SAVELY SORINE (1878-1953)

Portrait of HRH The Duchess of York (1900 - 2002)

signed and dated 1923

RCIN 453400

Sorine trained at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts in St Petersburg before moving to Paris. This portrait of The Duchess of York was completed in the year of her marriage to the future King George VI. An exhibition of Sorine’s work in London that year may have provided the motivation for the commission.

Possibly commissioned by The Duchess of York, later Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.
