When Sir John Lavery decided on the title for his biography he simply called it The Life of a Painter. His family said that it sounded like he was a house painter – but he refused to change the title.
The illustrated talk will follow his life from an orphan in Belfast to the highest social circles in London and the United States; and will have a special focus on his marriage to Hazel, Lady Lavery and their involvement in Irish politics.
