C.D. Barraud


Charles Decimus Barraud (1822-1897), one of a family of English artists, migrated to New Zealand in 1849. A noted watercolourist, he was a founder and later president of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts. Barraud's work reached a wide audience with the reproduction in 1877 of thirty paintings in his book New Zealand: Graphic and Descriptive.
