After Charlie’s untimely demise, the widowed Katey fell in love and married the handsome Italian artist Carlo Perugini.Charles Dickens lovingly nicknamed Katey “Lucifer Box” because of her fiery temper. In many ways, Katey was ahead of her time; she refused to be eclipsed by her father and fought to establish herself as an artist.

Katey lived to be almost ninety and her artistic prestige, which flourished during her lifetime, still persists to this day.
