I can't tell you anything! I am looking at the portraits attributed to Thomas Barber, a man associated mainly with Nottingham and Derby and mainly as a portrait painter (his dates 1771-1843). He exhibited a few times at the RA and is often portrayed as a follower of Thomas Lawrence. I see that there was a contemporary Thomas Barber mainly known as an engraver of landscape scenes, eg in context of a book of Isle of Wight illustrations which I read was published in 1834, though I don't see the publication date printed in the book (only from copies available online, so perhaps I missed something.) I am simply wondering if anyone has any evidence as to whether this was indeed two men or if they could possibly be one and the same. I have lots of information about the portrait painter and would be happy to share what I do know.
There are occasions when we are unsure of the identity of a sitter or artist, their life dates, occupation or have not recorded their family relationships. Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
