Charles Burton Barber

 

Charles Burton Barber (1845 - 1894), was a British painter who attained great success with his paintings of children and their pets. Barber became a very popular sporting and animal painter, specialising particularly in sentimental portraits of dogs, often with children. His work ranged from photographically realistic to quick sketches. Although some have regarded his work as overly sentimental, his work remains popular, largely because of his competent painting.
