John Maler Collier OBE RP ROI (January 27, 1850–April 11, 1934) was a British writer and painter in the Pre-Raphaelite style. He was one of the most prominent portrait painters of his generation.

The range of Collier's portrait subjects can be seen from the fact that, in 1893 for example, his subjects included the Bishop of Shrewsbury (Sir Lovelace Stamer), A Glass of Wine with Caesar Borgia, Sir John Lubbock FRS, A N Hornby (Captain of the Lancashire Eleven), A Witch, A Tramp, and the Bishop of Hereford (Dr Atlee).

His commissioned portrait of King George V as Master of Trinity House in 1901 when Duke of Cornwall and York shows the extent of his fashionable reputation.

Other subjects included two Lord Chancellors (the Earl of Selborne in 1882 and the Earl of Halsbury in 1898), the Lord Chief Justice Lord Alverstone (1912), and the Master of the Rolls (Sir George Jessel, 1881); Rudyard Kipling (1891); the painter (Sir) Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1884); the actors J L Toole (1887) and Mrs Kendal, Miss Ellen Terry and Mr Tree (in "The Merry Wives of Windsor", 1904); heads of houses such as the Master of Balliol (Professor Caird, 1904), the Warden of Wadham College, Oxford (G E Thorley, 1889) and the Provost of Eton (1898); the Speaker of the House of Commons (1898, one of relatively few political subjects); soldiers such as Field Marshal Lord Kitchener of Khartoum (1911) and Field Marshall Sir Frederick Haines (1891); two Indian Maharajahs, including the Maharajah of Nepal (1910); and scientists including Charles Darwin (1882), Dr Joule FRS (1882) and the artist’s father-in-law Professor Huxley (1891).

A photocopy of John Collier's Sitters Book (made in 1962 from the original in the possession of the artist's son) can be consulted in the National Portrait Gallery Heinz Archive and Library. This is the artist's own handwritten record of all his portraits, including name of subject, date, fee charged, and details of any major exhibitions of the picture in question.

Awesome images Dawn...

Thank you dear

You have been instrumental in creating a place, that I could only dream of... A modern day web library with more photo references than can be found almost anywhere else. This is a wonderful hub of knowledge, the lifeblood of democracy... thank you, again dear.

it is a place where the worlds most unique and interesting people gather... a place where even the wildest of ideas is heard with an open mind... (well, I try to anyway).

You have helped create it, too, Unknown, as well as Bianca, Rockessence, and many, many others, far too numerous to name.  Don't sell yourselves short.

Here is a place where we can engage in all that our hearts desire, and all that we should ever like to contemplate - be it philosophy, history or artwork.

Glad you appreciate Hon John Collier.  Like Mr. Waterhouse & Mr. Dicksee, I consider them old friends. 

Cheers,

Dawn

I would just like to say Dawn,

that from the first time I read one of your topic starters at AR, I was hooked... you have a very honest and natural depth that comes through in your writing. For it is soulful and sad, with a clarity of voice and passion of a woman beyond your age; yet  your tone is somehow inspiring, uplifting.... even when you are not feeling that way yourself.
