Occupation Photographer

Herbert Rose Barraud (24 August 1845 - 1896) was a noted portrait photographer who had studios in London and Liverpool. He produced cabinet photographs of many famous Victorian statesmen, artists, and members of the aristocracy, many of which were published in his two-volume work, Men and Women of the Day, 1888-89. Most of Barraud's images were Woodburytypes, then a newly developed process which lent itself admirably to portraiture, being able to render middle tones accurately.

Barraud's studios were at 96 Gloucester Place, Portman Square in 1883, at 263 Oxford Street ("A few doors west of 'The Circus'") between 1883 and 1891, at 73 Piccadilly from 1893 to 1896, and at 126 Piccadilly in 1897.[3] Another studio was located at 92 Bold Street, Liverpool.

Herbert's brother was Francis James Barraud (1856-1924), an artist celebrated for having created "His Master's Voice", a painting used in advertising by the early HMV gramophone records.[4]
