Thomas Oldham Barlow was an English artist who specialized in mezzotint engraving. He was born in 1824 in Oldham, Lancashire. He received an education from the Oldham Hume Grammar School and was then apprenticed to an engraving firm in Manchester where he studied at the Manchester School of Design. Although he did many engravings throughout his career, Barlow is most noted for working with the artists John Phillip and Sir John Everett Millais. He also founded a small informal art club known as the “Kensington Life Academy”. Barlow was a longtime member and secretary of The Etching Club, and artist’s society in London, and an associate engraver, full associate, and finally academician of the Royal Academy. He died in 1889 at the age of 65.
