John Collier (1850-1934)

English painter and writer John Collier worked in the Pre-Raphaelite style. Collier studied under the great masters of Europe and submitted portraits and subject paintings to the Royal Academy from 1870 until his death in 1934. Collier painted in a serious style, featuring the figures of military captains and statesman, as well as mythological female figures, which usually overthrew the faith and logic of men with their feminine beauty.

Collier was Vice President, as well as one of the founding members of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and he exhibited no fewer than 130 paintings at the Royal Academy. Collier's paintings featured a wide variety of subjects, finding inspiration in myth, legend and literature and painting themes that range from Lady Godiva to The Priestess of Delphi.
