Letitia Marion Hamilton

Irish 1878-1964 

Letitia Marion Hamilton was an Irish landscape artist and one of the founding members of the Society of Dublin Painters in 1920. Hamilton came from a family of notable Irish female artists. She was the great-granddaughter of the artist Marianne-Caroline Hamilton, the cousin of the watercolourist Rose Maynard Barton, and sister of painter Eva Henrietta Hamilton. Hamilton studied at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art under British artist Sir William Orpen, the Slade School of Art in London, and also under Welsh artist Sir Frank Brangwyn.

Throughout her career, Hamilton exhibited over 200 paintings at the Royal Hibernian Academy, becoming a member in 1943. Her work Meath Hunt Point-to-Point Races won her the 1948 bronze medal in the paintings category of the art competitions at the London Olympic Games, the last installment of the competition. Her works can be found in many prominent Irish collections, including The Ulster Museum in Belfast and the Hugh Lane Gallery and the National Gallery of Ireland, both in Dublin.
