Biography   James Baylis Allan

James Baylis Allan (sometimes spelled ‘Allen’) was born in Birmingham on April 18, 1803 and died in London on January 10, 1876.  At the age of fifteen he decided to make his living as a steel engraver for one of many companies in Birmingham.  He attended drawing classes given by John Vincent Barber and became a talented print-maker specializing in landscape views after originals by Turner, Prout and Clarkson Stanfield. 

Allan's oil paintings are very rare and The Finishing Line of the Boat Race, Mortlake is his chef d’oeuvre.
