Mary Harriet (Mainie) Jellet 1897-1944

Born in Dublin. She studied in Dublin and went to Paris with her friend Evie Hone where she worked with Albert Gleizes. She was well thought of but her cubist style was not so well received in Dublin initially. She promoted abstract painting and with Evie Hone organised the Irish Exhibition of Living Art. She is buried in Dublin.
