I have bought what might be a Fabian de Castro at a local auction. Could I share an image for your thoughts?
I have a Fabian de Castro painting very close to yours, with the orange carriers. Here is a picture : https://imgur.com/a/by6bBv2
Beautiful! I love it. It ties in with his description of his childhood.
Hi Flora - In your grandfather's papers is there any mention of Fenella Lovell? She was a model and a friend of Augustus John from 1907 and lived in Paris from 1908/9. She claimed to be a Gypsy.
Thanks, Flora, for sharing these wonderful things! May I ask who was your great-grandfather? Another friend of de Castro (and Cole) was the artist Augustus John who did a portrait of Fabian in c1911
Hi Mike, my great-grandfather was Royall Tyler (https://www.doaks.org/resources/bliss-tyler-correspondence/annotations/royall-tyler). I have manuscripts based on his early life story.
oh, it is amazing! And how did you arrive to Fabian de Castro?
He was one of my great-grandfather's best friends. He is even a witness on my grandfather's birth certificate. I come across things if his periodically. Wonderful character!
could you please tell me where have you found this works? Congratulations for your page!
Thank you for the kind words. These are my own possessions. I created the page because I know most of them have never been seen by the outside world and I wanted to share them.
