Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Private Collection, Northern Ireland

    In 1942 George Campbell married Margaret McNeill Thompson, and eight years later they took up residence in Dublin. Together with Dillon, they departed for Petregalego, east of Malaga, in 1951, thus beginning a passionate love affair with Spain's geography and culture.

    The Campbells spent every winter there and as a consequence George became an accomplished flamenco guitarist and ambassador for the country. At the age of 61 he was awarded the Insignia and Privileges of the Order of the Merito Civile, the equivalent of a British knighthood.
