Historical Artist - William Collins (1788 - 1847)

William Collins was taught by Morland. He specialized in landscapes and genre scenes. He was also a close friend to Wilkie, after whom he named his oldest son. Collins was a highly successful artist, whose work was better known in his day than that of his rival John Constable. He studied art with George Morland, and began to exhibit work at the RA in 1807. He continued to do so almost every year from 1807 until 1846. He was elected an associate member of the Royal Academy in 1814 and became a full member in 1820. He exhibited regularly at the Academy Summer Exhibition.
