Victorian Art and Artists

Catalogue index of the McCulloch Collection of Modern Art, with additional links to some of the paintings and artists

There 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Many of the links were to the BBC Your Paintings website, which has now been superceded by the Art UK website; click to read more about Art UK below.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, which simply 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.

The 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.

(Note: reference 8 is in two parts. The first volume contains brief details of about 1,100 painters, and the second contains more about some of these painters with illustrations of some of their paintings; mostly these are black and white plates. The cover of the first volume shows the middle of a charming painting by George Earl 1824 - 1908 named Going North. It depicts an appealling group of Victorian travellers and their dogs, mostly Setters, at a railway station. An earlier version of Going North was painted in 1875 and a sister painting made named Coming South).
