Margaret Epstein

Epstein married Margaret Dunlop in 1907 and they remained married until Margaret’s death in 1947. She tolerated Epstein’s infidelities, allowed his models and lovers to live in the family home and raised Epstein’s first child, Peggy Jean, who was the daughter of one of Epstein’s previous lovers. However, Margaret’s tolerance did not extend to Epstein’s relationship with Kathleen Garman, and in 1923 Margaret tried to shoot Kathleen.
