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.
This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface.
