British Portrait Painters and Artists' Suppliers

Individual artists
This is a selective listing by artist, providing information under three headings, Supplier, Equipment and Literature. Under Supplier, the dates given are usually those of individual works by the artist rather than the supply dates of materials; they derive from the Directory of Artists' Suppliers and will rarely span the full range of dates that an artist was using a particular supplier. Testimonials from artists are excluded from this listing. Under Equipment, a note is sometimes given on surviving equipment associated with the artist. Under Literature, reference is made to studies on an artist's technique or work.
