Barnard, William (1774-1849) (DNB00)

BARNARD, WILLIAM (1774–1849), mezzotint engraver, was born in 1774. He practised his art in London, and held for some years the office of keeper of the British Institution. He died 11 Nov. 1849. Among his most successful plates are ‘Summer’ and ‘Winter,’ after Morland, which are often found printed in colours, and no less than four portraits of Lord Nelson, after Abbott.
