Footnotes

  • EXHIBITED:
    Possibly the picture of the above title shown at the Royal Glasgow Institute, 1881, no. 577;
    Is this the end? - to be left alone,
    To live forgotten and die forlorn.-

    Tennyson.

    LITERATURE:
    McConkey, K, John Lavery, a painter and his world, Edinburgh, 2010, p.15

    McConkey mentions Mariana, which may be the above work, and others by Lavery painted around this time on similar themes eg Waiting and Her First Disappointment. In 1880 Lavery had a studio at 101 St. Vincent St., Glasgow, next door to fellow 'Glasgow Boy' Alexander Roche, and exhibited his first pictures at the Institute that year.
