Like Louis Bosworth Hurt and avid Bates, Derbyshire-born landscape painter Thomas Stanley Barber probably trained with George Turner whose influence can be seen in much of Barber’s work. Although he exhibited at the Manchester Art Gallery and was associated with the Birmingham School, Thomas Barber spent much of his career living and working in London where his finely executed landscapes of the Peak District and North Wales were enthusiastically collected by late Victorian patrons.
