Biography from International Art Centre:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles Decimus Barraud was a New Zealand pharmacist and artist born in Camberwell, Surrey, England 1822.  He emigrated with his family to New Zealand, arriving in Wellington in August 1849.  His wife was a cousin of Judge Henry Samuel Chapman, and it was Chapman who encouraged the emigration, providing the Barrauds with a cottage until their own house had been built.

From 1850, Barraud won recognition for his landscapes which are of considerable historical value.  He painted portraits of the Maori chiefs Honiana Te Puni-kokopu and Te Rangihaeata.  Barraud's 1853, Baptism of the Maori chief Te Puni in Otaki Church is held in the National Library of Australia, Canberra.
