George James Howard
Birth: Aug. 12, 1843
Death: Apr. 16, 1911

British Nobility. Active Liberal MP and an accomplished painter. His background dictated that he should be educated at Eton and Cambridge, but he wished only to become an artist. He was deeply involved in the artistic life of his day; Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris were among his many friends, and he trained under Alphonse Legros and Giovanni Costa. He married Rosalind Frances Stanley October 4, 1864, who descended from Charles II and James II, Kings of England and Scotland. With her influence and support, he was an active supporter of the Temperance Movement, and a dedicated Liberal. However the only role in public life he really cared for was that of National Gallery Trustee, a duty he performed for over thirty years. He travelled extensively for his art and health, to Italy, Germany, India, Egypt, Trinidad, Algiers, Amalfi and South Africa. (bio by: julia&keld)
