The Hon John Collier (also known as John Collyer) was a successful painter of portraits and dramatic scenes, born in London in January 1850. His father was a distinguished lawyer and MP, later Lord Monkswell, and he was educated at Eton.
He began his artistic education with Edward Poynter at the Slade School before travelling to Paris, where he became a pupil of J-P Laurens. He also worked with Alma-Tadema and his work was exhibited in London at the Royal Academy, at Suffolk Street and at the Grosvenor Gallery between 1874 and 1893.
Collier was a Member of the Institute of Painters in Oil Colour and his work was also exhibited in both France and Australia. Examples of his work, generally portraits of statesmen and business leaders, are now held in museums around the world and many of his paintings and portraits won prestigious awards during his lifetime.
John Collier died in April 1934.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
