Rt. Hon. Jonathan Hogg was a businessman and collector. He married Margaret Pease in 1876.


Hogg was a merchant and chairman of the firm of William Hogg & Co., Dublin. He was Director of the Bank of Ireland from 1901-02. He is mentioned in a letter from JW on 19 December 1884 to William Booth Pearsall (#08108) as having been the purchaser of two watercolours, Nocturne in grey and gold - Piccadilly (M.862) and Sunrise; gold and grey (M.917). Apparently, Hogg was amused that after the exhibition, JW sent Hogg a receipt of the work, since he was notorious for neglecting business matters.
