April 1900: Honour to a Glasgow Artist – John Lavery

A short article on page six of The Glasgow Herald, on Friday the 27th of April, 1900, reads:


“HONOUR TO A GLASGOW ARTIST.—John Lavery, although now resident in London, is a

Glasgow artist of distinction, who has recently devoted himself exclusively to portraiture. To

the first International Exhibition at Knightsbridge he contributed a portrait of his little

daughter and himself, which was afterwards shown at Philadelphia and Berlin. It is one of the

very few works by Scotch artists now in the Salon at Paris, and has been purchased by the French

Government for the Luxembourg. Mr Lavery has been officially informed that ‘Père et Fille’ will

be assigned ‘a distinguished position’ in the Gallery.”
