Mary Martha Alment (1834 - 1908):
Mary Martha Alment was born in Derry and studied art in Dublin. Her tutor, Henry McManus, was headmaster of what became the School of Design in 1849, and it was during that period that women were first admitted as students. From 1858 until her death, Mary Martha Alment frequently exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy, at the Dublin Sketching Club, and at the Watercolour Society of Ireland. She was chiefly a landscape painter.
