John Lavery

(1856-1941) Irish painter. The son of an unsuccessful publican, he was orphaned at the age of three and was brought up by relatives, initially in the north of Ireland and then in Ayrshire. He became an apprentice retoucher to a Glasgow photographer and attended the Haldane Academy, Glasgow, in the 1870s. After spending a winter term at Heatherley’s School of Art in London, he moved to Paris in 1881 where he studied at the Académie Julian. At this time he was influenced by Jules Bastien-Lepage and painted in a plein-air naturalist style (e.g. under the cherry tree, 1884; belfast, ulster mus.), working at the village of Grez-Sur-Loing with an international community of artists.
