Charles D. Barraud

Barraud was born in England in 1822, and in 1849 he emigrated to New Zealand where he set up business as a chemist in Lambton Quay, Wellington. He sketched in all parts of New Zealand, and, when he returned to England in 1875, he prepared the publication New Zealand Graphic and Descriptive, which was published in 1877. He attempted some portraits of notable Maori chiefs, one of which is in the Wanganui Art Gallery. He died in 1897.
