"We regret to announce the death of the Hon. Mrs Collier, daughter of Professor Huxley and wife of the Hon. John Collier, the well-known artist. Mrs Collier, who was only 27 years of age, died at Suresnes*, somewhat suddenly, of inflammation of the lungs, on Friday night last. She herself had remarkable talent as an artist. Her first picture, “The Sins of the Fathers” was favourably placed at the RA in 1879 [sic]. She was also an exhibitor in 1881, showing, in addition to a subject picture, a full-length portrait of her sister Miss Nettie Huxley. In another year her picture “By the Tideless Midland Sea” was one of the chief attractions at the Grosvenor Gallery, where Mrs Collier also exhibited some very charming child portraits."

* She died in the castle of Suresnes in the Dr Magnan's psychiatric hospital.
