Product DescriptionBiography of Charles Burton Barber
Charles Burton Barber (1845~1894), was an English painter. Considered one of England's finest genre and animal painters, Charles Burton Barber was to achieve great success during his lifetime with his paintings of children and their pets.
Charles Burton Barber was born in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, and studied from the age of 18 at the Royal Academy School, London. In 1864 he obtained a silver medal for drawing from the antique and in 1866 he exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy (RA) while living in Notting Hill.
During his lifetime Barber was regarded as one of England's finest animal painters and received commissions from Queen Victoria to do paintings of her with grandchildren and dogs, and also the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) and his pets. A number of his portraits are in the Royal Collection. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1866 to 1893. In 1883 he was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters.
Charles Burton Barber became a very popular sporting and animal painter, specialising particularly in sentimental portraits of dogs, often with children. His work ranged from photographically realistic to quick sketches. Although some have regarded his work as overly sentimental, his work remains popular, largely because of his competent painting.
Charles Burton Barber received his final commission in 1894 to paint Queen Victoria, with her grandchildren, in her pony carriage. He died in London soon afterwards. His place as foremost painter of children and pets was taken by Arthur Elsley.
Many of Charles Burton Barber paintings were engraved. He exhibited at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Walker Art Gallery and Manchester City Art Gallery. Much of his art is at the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight.
