1895

$25,015.33

About

A simply stunning oil on original canvas by the leading English Pre-Raphaelite painter and writer John Maler Collier. All Hallowe’en is a psychologically charged and mysterious composition, featuring a young woman clad in a nightgown who looks at her reflection in the haunting glow of a candle. Her expression is difficult to read, and the artist does not reveal what it is that has caught her eye behind her and what might be partially reflected in the glass. This work belongs to a series of “problem paintings” by the artist, which feature ambiguous and inconclusive dilemmas, many of which took place in domestic settings. Signature: Signed & dated lower left. Dimensions: Framed: 40"x56" Unframed: 34"x50" Provenance: Walter Herries Pollock, "The Hon. John Collier," The Art Annual, London, 1914, p. 6, illustrated John Collier began his artistic education with Sir Edward John Poynter before going to Paris and studying under J.P. Laurens. He also worked with Alma Tadema. He exhibited in London at the Royal Academy, at Suffolk Street and the Grosvenor Gallery between 1874 and 1893. He also exhibited at exhibitions in Sydney. He was a member of the Institute of Painters in Oil Colours. In 1932 he exhibited a Portrait of the Artist at the Salon des Artistes Français.
