Lavery's World

Time/Date - 10:00 - 17:00, Fri 28 Feb 2014 - Sun 3 Jan 2016

The Private World of Sir John Lavery (1856 - 1941).

Sir  John Lavery is best known as a society portraitist and for a remarkable series of formal portraits of politicians and prelates. This small exhibition looks instead at the private world of Sir John Lavery, and brings together portraits he painted of his wife and muse, Hazel, his daughter Eileen and step-daughter Alice. The exhibition sets the scene for these family portraits by including landscapes of places, such as Tangier in North Africa, which he visited many times.
