    Frank Holl was one of the most successful and fashionable portraitists of his age, numbering Millais, Gladstone and Pierpont Morgan amongst his sitters. Success bought him a studio house in Hampstead designed by Richard Norman Shaw, and another, Burrow's Cross, near Gomshall in Surrey, later owned by the artist Benjamin Williams Leader.
