BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE: Thomas E. Barratt (c1814 - after 1854) came to the United States after 1833 and flourished in Philadelphia. He often exhibited between 1837 and 1849 at the Artists’ Fund Society and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. His work is similar to that of Rembrandt Peale. Examples of Barratt's miniatures are in the Metropolitan Museum and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
