John Sheepshanks (art collector)
Leeds, England, United Kingdom
|Known for||Leaving his art collection to the Victoria & Albert Museum|
Sheepshanks collected pictures, mainly by British artists, and in 1857 presented his notable collection to the nation. These are at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, which no longer observes all the conditions which he attached to the gift. He retired from business in 1833 and died a bachelor in 1863. His sister and brother were Anne Sheepshanks and Richard Sheepshanks.
