BWM & VM with interesting Connection with Jacob Epstein

3 posts in this topic

Just added for interest, this is a pair with an interesting connection to the sculptor Jacob Epstein, named to 2nd Lieut A W J Lindsell-Stewart, he was married to Dorothy Lindsell-Stewart (named changed later by deed-poll to Green)who became involved as a model and partner to the sculptor. The following is part of an article on-line relating to there story,

There is no record of how Epstein met Meum, the slender, fair-haired woman, both seductive and demure, who became the mother of his first child. Dorothy Lindsell-Stewart (Meum was her pet name), the estranged wife of an army captain, and Epstein fell in love. The newspapers described Meum as "Epstein's favourite model" and she was soon a part of the Epstein household. In 1918, Peggy Jean was born. Both Margaret and Epstein were there, and Meum was content to allow them to bring up her child.

A W J Lindsell-Stewart was later discharged from the 7th KOYLI after he received wounds in 1916 & 1917.

An interesting posting - apropos to nothing I can't help but feel that the famed sculptor bore a quite interesting likeness to the prolific Mr Stephen Fry...
