Table of contents What's This?
A collection of correspondence chiefly between Pre-Raphaelite painter William Holman Hunt and fellow artist and friend, John Lucas Tupper.
William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) was an English painter who, with Sir John Everett Millais (1829-1896), originated the Pre-Raphaelite movement. He married Frances Waugh, but she died as a result of complications giving birth to their son Cyril Benone Holman Hunt. Hunt later married Frances's sister, Marion Edith Waugh, and they had two children, Gladys Mulock Holman Hunt and Hilary Holman Hunt. John Lucas Tupper (approximately 1823-1879) was a sculptor and poet and an early member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He was a student at the Royal Academy in the 1840s, where he met Hunt and other Pre-Raphaelites. He married Annie Amelia French in 1871 and they had two children, John Holman Tupper and Mary Tupper.
