More about Julian Barrow

Painter, adept at catching the spirit of a place, who travelled widely. He was born in Longtown, Cumberland in 1939, and studied at RWA and Signorina Simi’s Academy in Florence, Italy. Barrow was an inveterate traveler, painting views throughout the world, including in London, New York, the Middle East, India, and the Far East. For decades he lived, with his wife Serena, in a magnificent studio on Tite Street in Chelsea in the building formerly occupied at various times by Sargent, Whistler, Glyn Philpot and Augustus John. Barrow was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and was a long time President of the Chelsea Art Society. He died in 2013.

'Barrow was one of five brothers who spent much of the WW2 years, and afterwards up to the 1960s, with their Grandmother, Ruth Armine MacInnes who lived in Dacre.  This view is from his Uncle's house above Pooley Bridge'.
