Port St Mary

Date made: 1901

Artist: Lynam, Lucy Emma

Description: “Pleasant walk to Port Murray [Port St Mary] Kirk, along the bay before breakfast; well cultivated, very populous, but wanting trees, outlines of hills pleasing.” (Dorothy Wordsworth, Journal of a Tour in the Isle of Man 1828, M 10561)

The painting is from a series of works by Mrs Lucy Emma Lynam, born 1834. It is thought that Lucy Emma Lynam painted the works while staying with her daughter and son-in-law on the Isle of Man. Her daughter, also called Lucy Emma, married a Manxman Sidney Alfred Pizey Kermode, who was the Reverend of Onchan (1862-1925).
