Notes: Nora Barnacle Joyce The watercolour painting is taken from the wedding photograph of Nora Barnacle Joyce on 4th July, 1931. She is emerging from Kensington Registry Office having married James Joyce (1882-1941), with whom she had lived in an inseparable and amazingly devoted and loving relationship for 28 years. They had two children, Georgia and Lucia at this time. In the background from left to right are effigies of James Joyce taken, firstly, from a photograph of him outside Sylvia Beach's shop, Shakespeare & Co in the Rue de l'Odeon in Paris in 1921; secondly from a photo of Joyce taken in his friend C.P Curran's back garden in 1904 and finally from the bronze statute at the top of North Earl Street in Dublin. This is a limited edition of 25 giclee prints of the original paintings, each signed and numbered by the artist and sent rolled and ready for framing.
