John Collier: Victorian Britain’s Darkest Artist

The horrors of the unconscious mind

Britain is not a country known for its great painters. In fact, I challenge my readers outside the UK to name one. J. M. W. Turner or John Constable are the likely choices for most people and that’s a fair claim. Both men are brilliant artists and Turner’s work especially comes alive when you stand before it. However, neither man is a patch on John Collier, one of my favourite painters, and I’m going to spend the next few minutes convincing you of his greatness.
