Mary Cottenham Yeats
1867-1947
PORTRAIT OF JOHN MASEFIELD
Probably executed in April 1905. Masefield first stayed with Jack and Cottie Yeats in 1903 and was also to visit two years later. In an unpublished letter to Cottie Yeats, dated 1 May 1905, Masefield writes 'I wish to thank you both so very much for the jolly time at Cashlauna, and for all your kindness to me. I was very sad to come away, for it is a wrench indeed to leave delightful people, and such a country, and so many jolly things to do, for an empty house in town, a garden full of weeds, and a loathsome mass of work...' (see National Gallery of Ireland. Y Archive. L.Mas.4) 
signed and dated with monogram l.r.: MCY, 1905
22.5 by 16.5cm., 9 by 6½in.
