The Herbert Percy Horne papers span the years 1891-1912 with the bulk of the material falling into the period 1896-1903. Horne,
during this time, was devoting his energies increasingly to art history and criticism, particularly his work on Botticelli;
and had begun to spend part of each year in italy, settling there permanently in 1900.
Herbert Percy Horne was borne in the Bedford Park section of London on February 18, 1864, the son of Henry or Horace Horne,
an architect and art collector, and Miss Porter of Russell Square, the daughter of a surveyor. He was educated at St. Paul's
in London, completing his formal schooling at a time when the aesthetic movement was in full flower.
