The Irish painter John Lavery swam against the current with his art. His landscape and portrait painting defied the traditional approaches of his time. As an important member of the young artists' group "Glasgow Boys", he marked the beginning of modern painting in Scotland alongside James Guthrie. His membership in the Parisian artists' colony "Grez sur Joinge" had a great influence on his art. Here the artist Lepage brought him to open-air painting and John Lavery's most famous landscape painting "the bridge in Grez" was created.

Lavery became a portrait painter through an apprenticeship with a photographer in Glasgow. This experience sparked his passion for portraiture at the age of 17. Later he got the chance to study drawing at the prestigious "Académie Julian" as a student of William Adolphe Bouguereau. Thereby he extended his abilities. He made a name for himself as a portrait painter at the latest with the painting of Queen Victoria. At the time of the First World War the British Navy appointed John Lavery as a war artist. After the war, he was knighted and he began to paint again with society portraits.

Already in his early childhood the artist lost his parents and grew up with relatives in Scotland. In his further life he also had to cope with losses: His first wife died of tuberculosis shortly after his daughter was born. A few years later he married again, this his wife also died before him. She inspired him to paint various portraits and gave him access to high society. Thus he painted the British Royal Family and was a member of various, partly royal academies. The losses of his two wives finally led him to travel. He loved Morocco and the city of Tangier, so he bought property there and built a studio where he spent the winter months. Where he lived, he also worked: In Morocco, he had the honor of drawing the Moroccan royal family. On his travels in Europe he exhibited his works, which met with great approval there. In London he became the vice-president of an artists' association. He also spent a long time in the USA, where he portrayed stars in Hollywood. At the beginning of the Second World War Lavery returned from his travels to Ireland and died a natural death. © Meisterdrucke
