Sir John and Lady Hazel Lavery

Belfast man John Lavery’s status as a portrait artist has flourished in the decades since his death with his paintings fetching tens of thousands of pounds at auction.

But as Lavery’s reputation continues to thrive, his wife Hazel has slipped into obscurity. This was not always the case.
