Alexander O’Driscoll was an Irish artist who specialised in painting scenes of Irish political life. One wonders if this may actually be a self-portrait?

Light dust-soiling and with a narrow card spacer affixed to the outside edge. The spacer will be easy to lift off according to personal preference.
