    Obituary 1905 
    • The following Obituary appeared in "The Art Journal", in 1905.

      The death, on November 4th, of Mr. Valentine Cameron Prinsep, R.A., was no less unexpected than deeply deplored by hundreds who knew and respected him. Born in India, on February 14th, in the year 1838, he first exhibited at the Academy in 1862, was made an Associate in 1879, an Academician in 1894, and in 1900 became Professor of Painting; his predecessor and successor being respectively Professor von Herkomer and Mr. Clausen. Though he himself made no claims to greatness, Mr. Prinsep knew all the eminent British artists of his time, onward from Mulready - several of them intimately. In the eager days when, at Oxford, the Union was being decorated by those not yet called Pre-Raphaelites, he was happy with Rossetti and William Morris; at Gleyre's studio, in Paris, Sir Edward Poynter and Whistler were fellow-students; few, if any, knew Leighton so well as he; in old Little Holland House, as it was almost forty years ago, Watts lived with Mr. Prinsep's parents; he and Millais had much in common.

      Among the hundred treasures in the palatial red brick home of Mr. Prinsep in Holland Park Road - pictures, tapestries, objects of art, rare books - none was more highly prized than Millais' 'Eve of St Agnes,' 1863, which came third in the painter's own esteem, bought by Mr. Prinsep for 2,000 guineas at the Leyland dispersal, 1892. He married a daughter of Mr. Leyland, for whom Whistler painted the Peacock Room, and the purchase of the Leyland Boat Service by the Pierpont Morgan Trust is said to have considerably increased Mrs. Prinsep's fortune. Mr. Prinsep's fund of excellent stories, about all sorts of men and incidents and things, seemed quite inexhaustible. The Memorial Service in St. Paul's Cathedral was an outward mark of the esteem in which he was held.
