Francis Philip Barraud RA (1834-1901)
Magdalen College Oxford watercolour (19th century)
Signed lower right
Barraud came from a family of painters. William and Henry were brothers, born in 1810 and 1811 respectively, the former a painter of equine subjects and hounds, the latter a landscape painter, and unusually the two of them made a habit of painting joint commissions. Francis, born in 1824, was a noted topographical artist, being well known for his views of Oxford in particular. Here he handles the old stonework of the College very capably, impressionistic flowers enhancing the scene.
