Louis John Steele's Te Ara biography is available online.
The middle name James is used erroneously for the artist Louis John Steele quite frequently. This error appears to originate in Una Platts, Nineteenth Century New Zealand Artists and, assuming this to be correct, it has subsequently been repeated in auction catalogues and other records. The name on Steele's birth certificate however is Louis John Steele. Due to the frequency with which the name is mistakenly used it is included here as a variant, but it should be noted that it is incorrect.
