Ronald Ossory Dunlop RA (1894 – 1973) was an Irish author and painter in oil of landscapes, seascapes, figure studies, portraits and still life. Dunlop was born in Dublin, Ireland, to a Scottish-Irish Anthroposophical-Quaker family. His mother painted in watercolour. He studied at Manchester School of Art, at Wimbledon College of Art and in Paris, having spent some time working in an advertising agency.

Most of his life was spent in England, latterly at Barnham, West Sussex, close to Chichester. He achieved fame in his lifetime, having been elected a full member of the Royal Academy in 1950, and his work is instantly recognisable, as are the many fakes which have appeared on the market over the past thirty years or so!

Dunlop’s mother, Eleanor (née Fitzpatrick) was herself a watercolour artist. His father Daniel Nicol Dunlop (1868–1935), was a great friend of W. B. Yeats, James Stephens and George Russell. Yeats, Russell, and Daniel Nicol Dunlop had together published The Irish Theosophist from the home of Eleanor’s father, the Shakespearean scholar R. H. Fitzpatrick.

He maintained his Irish connections, returning periodically to paint in Dublin and submitting a number of works to the RHA in the 1940s and 1950s.
