In 1892 B C Collier countersigned a suggestion with several other artists concerning the lodging place of the Arts Club book of addresses for 'models' (Tovey 2009), and Whybrow had noted his presence in her 1883-1900 list. The figure painter's addresses had been consecutively in London (1880) and Canterbury (1887). This entry, therefore, extends his biography by some years that may have been spent, at least partly, in Cornwall.
He was the son of Thomas Frederick COLLIER (fl1850-1874) who was also a landscape and still-life painter and a sometime teacher at the Cork School of Design.
