Victorian Art and Artists
Catalogue index of the McCulloch Collection of Modern Art, with
additional links to some of the paintings and artists
is a later version of this page which is cross referenced to the associated
Special Edition of the Art Journal
This page contains an annotated transcription of the
index at the back of the catalogue which listed the painters and sculptors
whose work was exhibited at the
Royal Academy Winter
Exhibition of 1909, which featured the 'McCulloch Collection of Modern Art'.
We have now associated the name of the work with its
catalogue number in the right hand column below, and in many cases added
links to the artists and paintings, which it is hoped will enable the reader
to gain an overview of the collection and possibly inspire further reading
about the world of Victorian art.
Many of the links were to the BBC Your Paintings website,
which has now been superceded by the
Art UK website;
click to read more about Art UK below.
In a few cases we have included a description of the work
from the RA catalogue.
Some of the painters are described as 'genre' painters,
means that they painted domestic scenes of everyday life, either indoors or
outdoors; often of poor people in an agricultural setting. Many also painted
portraits of the wealthy to supplement their income.
current whereabouts of the paintings is more problematic; a few paintings,
particularly the larger ones are in public galleries, some are now known by
a different name to that in the catalogue, while the majority we have
not been able to trace.
In the addendum at the bottom of
the page we have listed other artworks in the collection which were not
exhibited at the RA.
We would love to hear from you if you have any information,
about the artists, paintings and sculptures that could be added to this
page, particularly those for which we have no information.
