EDWIN EDWARDS (English / 1823-1879)

Edwin Edwards was a wealthy lawyer who devoted most of his time to art rather than his practice. Edwards was an important collector, but also a painter and etcher of real skill. Edwin Edwards was close to Whistler (who for some private joke called him "Charles Price"), and it was Whistler who introduced Edwards to his closest artistic ally Fantin-Latour. Fantin-Latour's double portrait of Edwin Edwards and his wife is in the Tate Gallery.
