Redpath wrote to Borchard: ‘... a self portrait in oil of me about 20-odd years ago. As you can imagine at 69 I don’t look like the portrait now, but it isn’t bad (I think)’ On the side of the letter is a crucial afterthought: ‘the date would have to be marked as I shouldn’t like anyone to think I paint myself 20 years younger.’
