About The Artist
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. These works are typical of Collier: very dramatic and emotional as well as intellectual and anecdotal.
Collier's paintings have been criticized for being dull and with a flat use of paint but his unexpected use of color created a juxtaposed mood and appearance. Sourcing Collier's writings on art he encourages the artist to strictly and realistically interpret nature for paintings a standard to which he also measured his own paintings.
