William Barraud Biography


1810 - London - 1850


William Barraud was a leading sporting artist.  He is reputed to have worked in the Customs House for a short period, but he left to devote his time entirely to painting.  He studied with Abraham Cooper and became known primarily for his pictures of horses and dogs. William exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy from 1828-1850 and at the British Institution from 1828-1849.


William frequently collaborated with his younger brother Henry, who distinguished himself both as a portraitist and a sporting artist. From 1835 until William's death in 1850, the brothers shared a studio, exhibiting jointly at the Royal Academy as well as individually. They also produced a book entitled Sketches of Figures and Animals, published by H. Graves and Co., c.1850.  William collaborated with T Fairland and compiled The Book of Animals Drawn from Nature, published by C Tilt in 1864.
