Artworks and letters of William Thomas Horton

The collection contains paintings and drawings by the symbolist artist William Thomas Horton (1864-1919), together with transcripts of letters from H. Rider Haggard, W.B. Yeats and others.

He became involved in spiritualism in his graphic work, and was influenced by the French artist Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen. Horton's imagery was often powerful and original, and inspired, he believed, by some occult influence.
