Marcus Stone Gallery

Marcus Stone (1840-1921) was a prominent Victorian painter of oil and watercolor, whose paintings and illustrations were popular during the late nineteenth century. A friend of Charles Dickens, he illustrated Our Mutual Friend. His father Frank Stone (1800-1859) was also a painter, and both artists exhibited their works at the Royal Academy. The younger Stone's romantic genre works earned him a fine reputation in England, and his works became expensive, prized items for wealthy Victorians.
