Letitia Marion Hamilton (30 July 1878 Dunboyne - 1964), was an Irish artist who, with her sister Eva, studied under William Orpen at the Metropolitan School of Art in Dublin and under Frank Brangwyn. Letitia Hamilton can be described as an Irish avant-garde painter in the true sense of the term. She spent some time in Italy and France, but travelled and painted all over the Continent. She exhibited in the Paris Salon.
Letitia was the great-granddaughter of the artist Caroline Hamilton (1771-1861) and cousin to Rose Barton. She was a prolific painter of the Irish countryside, exhibiting more than 200 paintings at the Royal Hibernian Academy of which she became a member in 1943. Together with Paul Henry, his wife Emily Grace Mitchell/Grace Henry, Mary Swanzy, Jack Butler Yeats and others, she formed the Society of Dublin Painters in 1920.
