Biography

Print collector, especially of caricatures and sporting prints. An exhibition of his collection of Carington Bowles mezzotints was held at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris in 1938 (typescript catalogue in Department of Prints and Drawings, P.6.23.3). Prints from his collection sold at a number of sales: 16 Jan 1926, 7 May 1928, 21 and 28 January and 25 February 1948. Prints also sold by Mrs Minto Wilson at Sotheby's on 17 and 18 July 1974 (it was probably at this sale that mezzotints were purchased by Christopher Lennox-Boyd, see 2010,7081.392-403).
