Description: Estella Frances Solomons HRHA (1882-1968)Portrait of Elizabeth Lucy (Norah) HoultOil on canvas, 61 x 51cm (24 x 20'')Provenance: From the artist's studio. The estate of Geoffrey O'Connor, Co. Kerry.The writer Elizabeth Lucy Hoult known as ‘Norah’ was born in Dublin but due to the early death of her parents was mainly educated in English boarding schools.Her first book “Poor women! (1928)” gained her both popular and critical success. She married the English writer Oliver Stoner in 1929 but the marriage was only to last four years and after they split up she returned to live in Rathmines. She wrote critical reviews for a number of publications including the “Dublin Magazine” whose editor was Seamus O’Sullivan , Estella Solomons husband and she was a friend of both husband and wife. While in Ireland she wrote two novels based here “Holy Ireland”(1935) and “Coming to the Fair” published in 1937, the year she left Ireland for New York where she stayed for two years.
