Lavery R.A., Sir John (1856 - 1941)
'Sketch of Mme A.H': Mrs Heseltine. Charcoal. 1883. Inscribed: 'Sketch of Mme A.H. / by John Lavery'. Provenance: Given with other studies by the artist to the sitter and thus by decent from her. Lavery met Mrs Arthur Heseltine (nee Celie Caroline Guillet and sister in law of Jean-Charles Cazin) and her husband (m.1882) visiting the artists' colony at Grez-sur-Loing in 1883. He later stayed with them at nearby Marlotte in 1897-8 and 1900 and Mrs Heseltine posed for 'Garden in France', 1898 (Private Coll). He also painted Mrs Heseltine's portrait (Castle Museum, Norwich).
