  • Lavery met the sixteen-year-old Mary in 1901 at Unter den Linden. At that time he had a number of important German clients and was planning an exhibition at Schulte's Gallery in Berlin the following year. Mary appeared in Lavery's work in 1902 in an important sequence of full-length portraits - Mary with Roses 1902 (Coll. Johannesburg Art Gallery), Mary in a Green Coat, 1903 (Coll. Bradford Art Gallery), Mary in Green, 1903 (Coll. National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa) and the exceptional Printemps, 1904 ( Coll. Musée d'Orsay, Paris). When the latter was shown in the Paris Salon, it was regarded as the epitome of Englishness - French critics little realizing in the year of the Entente Cordiale, that the model was German. Arnold Bennett reflected this confusion, and wrote enthusiastically in his journal that while she apparently typified the French fascination for English girls, he had discovered that she was 'the rage of Berlin' and 'had received 5 proposals in three months' (Norman Flower ed., The Journals of Arnold Bennett, Cassell and Co, 1932, pp. 167, 170). Travelling with Mary, Lavery was conscious of issues of propriety, sometimes taking with him a studio assistant named P Burrowes Shiel, or on other occasions enlisting the support of his teenage daughter, Eileen, who became Mary's close friend.
