Lavery`s first wife, Kathleen MacDermott who he married in 1889, died of Tuberculosis in 1891, shortly after the birth of their daughter Eileen (who later became Lady Sempill, 1890-1935). Lavery remarried in 1909, an Irish-American lady Hazel Martyn, who already had a daughter, Alice. Hazel appeared in more than 400 of her husband`s paintings whilst sadly his first wife was not so fortunate. The love of a mother for her child is so beautifully captured by this great artist.
