Henry Barraud Biography



1811 - London - 1874



Born into an unusually talented family whose accomplishments included medicine, horology, photography and painting, Henry Barraud distinguished himself as a portraitist and a sporting artist. He excelled in painting equestrian portraits and more general scenes, peopled with identifiable figures and numerous horses and hounds.


Henry was the younger brother of William (1810-1850), who was also an important sporting artist. He studied with JJ Middleton, a portrait painter, who influenced the figurative aspect of his work. The Barraud brothers shared a studio from 1835 until William’s death in 1850 and collaborated on many paintings. They also produced a book entitled Sketches of Figures and Animals published by H. Graves and Co. circa 1850. Henry exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy from 1833 to 1859 and at the British Institution from 1831 to 1864.
