HENRY BARRAUD

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.

 

WILLIAM BARRAUD

1810 – London – 1850

 

William Barraud was born in Lambeth, London in 1810, one of the seventeen children of William Francis Barraud (1783-1833), a clerk in the Custom House, and his wife Sophia, daughter of the miniature painter Thomas Hull. Barraud’s paternal ancestors were French Huguenot watch- and clockmakers. William studied with Abraham Cooper and became known primarily for his pictures of horses and dogs. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy from 1829-1850 and at the British Institution from 1828-1849. William painted a portrait of the famous fox-hunter John Warde, which was twice engraved. He collaborated with the figure painter W Baily on Skirmish of Cavaliers and Roundheads, which was shown at the Royal Academy in 1831.

 

William’s younger brother Henry (1811-1874) studied with the portrait painter JJ Middleton. From 1835 until William’s death in 1850, the brothers shared a studio in Soho and collaborated on many paintings, 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. circa 1850. William collaborated with T Fairland and compiled The Book of Animals Drawn from Nature, published by Charles Tilt in 1864. In 1841 William married Mary Ratliff; their only child, Clement William, was born in 1843 and Mary died soon after. In 1850 William married Margaret Harrison, but died of typhoid in October of that year.
