Frederick Hollyer (1838-1933), Photographer and art publisher

Sitter associated with 6 portraits
Artist associated with 105 portraits
Hollyer took up photography in about 1860, and established a business in the photographic reproduction of works of art, notably the paintings of the pre-Raphaelites and the drawings of Burne-Jones. As a relaxation he photographed people, and at his studio on Pembroke Square, London, Mondays were reserved for portraiture. His portrait prints, with their limited range of tone and distinctive mounts, have a rare delicacy and beauty. His sitters are unselfconsciously posed and softly lit, their characters revealed with great sympathy and understanding. Hollyer was a member of the Photographic Society and the Linked Ring brotherhood.
