Description

ABOUT THE ARTIST(1845–1894),See Image 10 / Last
CHARLES BURTON BARBER was an English painter who attained great success with his paintings of children and their pets.

Barber was born in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, and studied from the age of 18 at the Royal Academy, London - receiving a silver medal for drawing in 1864, and first exhibiting there in 1866.

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,[1] 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.

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.

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 Barber’s paintings were made into prints, usually in the medium of photogravure. He exhibited at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Walker Art Gallery and Manchester Art Gallery. Much of his art is at the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PAINTING
This extremely well executed painting is possibly by the artist or by a close follower of the artist.

Interestingly it is not a direct copy of his original as there should be a kitten sat on the bed by the young girls right elbow and a butter dish with flowers also on the bed lower down on the covers.

This could possibly be one of the artist practice pieces as a fore runner to his final version and original,but as the work is not signed or labelled verso,we shall never really know.

Many of the artists works are still very popular today,and have been reproduced as giclee prints by various companies.(See a copy giclee image 9)

An enjoyable oil painting on canvas of a young girl saying her prayers prior to having breakfast in bed with her loyal pet Jack Russell Terrior keen to join in the feast.

The painting depicts the child sitting up in bed to eagerly eat her breakfast which consists of an hard boiled egg with two slices of toast accompanied by a cup of tea,each item set out beautifuuly by the artist on a tray.

The young girls loyal terrier stands impatiently over the offerings and eagerly awaits any left over scraps.

The painting is tastefully painted full of charactor and really captures the innocent girl unaware her dog has her meal in mind for itself.

The girl has a warm glow to her face which illuminates the whole scene with warmth and charm.

Very well painted and set inside a later gilt moulded frame.
