Mary Herbert and her husband Henry, Lord Lieutenant of Kerry, hosted the royal family on their trip to Ireland in August 1861. Like the queen, Mary painted in watercolours throughout her life and was a celebrated landscape painter – The Times newspaper even claimed that ‘among water-colour artists Mrs Herbert is held to be the most gifted amateur in the kingdom’.
