FRANCIS COLLINS (179- -1833)


Francis Collins was Wilkie Collins's uncle, the younger brother of William Collins.  He was described as a sweet-natured man who was very popular with his nephews, Wilkie and Charles.  Francis Collins was knowledgeable about art and artists, though without worldly or artistic ambition.  He followed his father's occupation of art-dealer and picture restorer.  In 1833 he contracted typhus and after lapsing into violent delirium died on 5 October.
