John Noble Barlow was a prominent English artist at the turn of the twentieth century, well known for his large landscapes, seascapes, sunsets, moonrises and autumnal scenes. He was born in Manchester, England in 1861. He enrolled at the Académie Julian in Paris, and studied for two years under Jules Joseph Lefebvre, Paul Delance and Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant. Barlow also studied in Belgium, the Netherlands and New York. He later emigrated to the United States and became a U.S. citizen in 1887. Barlow lived in Providence, Rhode Island, was a member of the "Providence Art Club" and exhibited at the National Academy of Design and the Art Institute of Chicago.
Barlow returned to England in 1889, married Marie Elizabeth Johnson (an American Citizen) in London in 1891, and then settled in St. Ives, Cornwall in 1892. In 1896, Barlow was made a member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) and, in 1916, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI). He received medals at both the 1899 Paris Salon and the 1900 Paris Exposition. Many of his later scenes are from the Lamorna Valley, Cornwall, where he had a studio. Barlow's pupils at the John Noble Barlow school included well-known painters, such as Garstin Cox, William Cox, Donald Henry Floyd, Herbert George, Anna A. Hills, and Edgar Nye.
Three of Barlow's paintings are currently displayed at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum in Providence. Barlow's work is also on public display in Cheltenham, Plymouth and Truro in England. He often ssigned his works, "J. N. Barlow".
