  • Dry-point etching was the medium of choice for Hazel Martyn, who studied the technique in Paris in 1902 and again in 1903 with the Parisian etcher Edgar Chahine (1874-1947). In the spring of 1903 an exhibition of Martyn's European work was held in Chicago and the Chicago Daily News reported: "Men who know pictures are enthusiastic about her work". This same year Sketches by Hazel Martyn was published by A. C. McClurg, Chicago, on behalf of the Arts Collector's Club. This work pertains to this publication which featured etchings of society ladies and included a self-portrait. In 1903 Hazel was 23 years old and studying art in France. It was at this time she first encountered Sir John Lavery at the artist colony of Beg-Meil in Brittany. Later that year she married Edward Livingston Trudeau and the following year a daughter, Alice, was born. She would marry her second husband, Sir John Lavery in 1909.
