James Baylis Allan (sometimes spelt ‘Allen’) was born in Birmingham on 18 April 1803 and died in London on 10 January 1876. At the age of fifteen he decided to make his living as a steel engraver for one of many companies in Birmingham. He attended drawing classes given by John Vincent Barber and became a talented print-maker specialising in landscape views after originals by Turner, Prout and Clarkson Stanfield. Primarily an engraver, Allan's oil paintings are very rare.
