John Collier (1850- 1934) was a British Pre-Raphaelite painter, illustrator and published author. He was educated in London by Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Edward Poynter, before moving to Paris to study with Jean-Paul Laurens. Insisting upon extreme, sometimes workmanlike accuracy in his paintings of historical and mythological events, Collier also painted many portraits of kings, noblemen, actors and socialites, and was a founding member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
