The Irish beauty poses in postured 3½x5½ photograph, signs her name in black ink. Extremely Rare!
Photograph signed: "Kathleen Ryan" in black ink. B/w, 3½x5½. Actress Kathleen Ryan (1922-1985) was born into a very prominent Irish family; as the daughter of Irish Republican activists during the Irish War of Independence, Ryan's seven siblings include Irish bohemian artist John Ryan, Father Vincent Ryan, and Sister Ide of the Covent of The Sacred Heart, as well her brother-in-laws, artist Patrick Swift and politician Sean Dunne. She made her film debut in Odd Man Out (1947) and went on to appear in films such as Captain Boycott (1947), Sin of Ester Waters (1948), Give Us This Day (1949) and The Sound of Fury (1950). Considered one of Ireland's great beauties of her time, Ryan was subject of one of Louis le Brocquy's most striking portraits, "Girl in White", which he painted in 1941. Creased throughout. Small puncture in top margin. Corners rounded. Toned and slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
