Amelia Hatton (Brian's Mother)

Painting, 1904
Amelia Hatton was the mother of the artist Brian Hatton. She was born in 1864 and married Alfred Hatton in 1884 when she was twenty years old. Brian, her first child and only son was born in 1887. Her daughters Ailsa and Marjorie were born in 1893 and 1895. Amelia Hatton was a talented artist who recognised and nurtured her son's artistic ability from when he was a very young child. The collection contains a small drawing of three birds dated from when he was two years old. Brian Hatton maintained a very affectionate relationship with his mother until her death in 1909. He relied on her judgement and guidance throughout his artistic career. This oil painting of Amelia Hatton, created in 1904, captures her kind and gentle spirit and also perhaps the delicate health which led to her death when she was only 45 years old.
