At present we have over 200 entries of medical figures, artists and art world figures, travellers and explorers, philanthropists and social reformers and some figures from the performing arts.

If you are having trouble locating a sitter, try searching just by the surname.

Alternatively you can review precisely who is featured on the View A-Z of all sitters in Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue link

If you are searching for a keyword, try avoiding abbreviations, such as R.A. in favour of the full name of Royal Academy.
