Francis Philip Barraud (1824 - 1900) was an English watercolurist, etcher and painter of stained-glass windows. In 1858, Barraud went into partnership with Nathaniel Wood Lavers in a company which produced stained-glass windows in the conventional Gothic Revival manner. Up until that point, Barraud had been a freelance designer and was renowned for his excellent draughtsmanship, which can be seen to manifest in his etching. In the 1880's, Barraud produced the watercolours for a series of thirty chromolithographs of English cathedrals. He also exhibited with the Fine Arts Association in 1884.
