Om John Maler Collier: 105 Masterpieces
John Maler Collier was a leading English painter and writer. He painted in the Pre-Raphaelite style, and was one of the most prominent portrait painters of his generation. Collier was from a talented and successful family. After four years at Eton, and some time spent abroad studying French and German, Collier approached his father, and announced his change of intent, explaining his desire to become a painter. He was introduced to Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, studied at the Slade School of Art, London, under Edward Poynter, moved to Paris where he studied under Jean-Paul Laurens and then went to Munich. Collier sent a steady stream of portraits and subject pictures to the Royal Academy from 1870 until the end of his life. As a portrait painter he imitated the mature work of John Everett Millais, but today he is known most for his theatrical images of femme fatales or for his Pre- Rephaelite-based scenes of Greco-Roman and British mythology.
