Description
This 62-piece collection chiefly contains correspondence to Pre-Raphaelite artist and art collector Charles Fairfax Murray (1849-1919), as well as a few manuscripts by Murray and seven unsigned pencil and ink sketches, some of which are by Murray.
Background
Artist Charles Fairfax Murray (1849-1919), was born in London but lived a significant portion of his adult life in Italy. He was an artist who did work for John Ruskin, Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris. Murray is sometimes identified as the "forgotten Pre-Raphaelite" but he was also an internationally known collector, art dealer, connoisseur, and buyer for private collectors and public museums.
Extent
