James Collinson

Speaking of James Collinson, some new images have popped up on the web the past few years. The most interesting is a supposed self-portrait and one of his wife Elizabeth. I hope these will be studied for authenticity because we do not have a portrait of Collinson. Jan Marsh mentions one self-portrait made in his youth but I have yet to see a reproduction of this.

By his subjects and style he is more closely related to Frank Stone and William Powell Frith than the Pre-Raphaelites. His Solice for an Invalid follows in the tradition of Frith’s Sherry, Sir.
