George Barret Senior RA (1732-1784)

One of the most renowned Irish landscape artists of the 18th century, George Barret (Senior) succeeded in carving out a highly lucrative career as a painter in London, before succumbing to bankruptcy. All four of his children became artists, including George Barret Junior (1767-1842). Barret occupies an important position of one of the forerunners of romantic landscape.

Born in Dublin, the son of a clothier, he was initially apprenticed to a cors (showing 500 of 4070 characters).
