Artist-engraver, Barry Cottrell, was born in Bristol and graduated from Oxford University with an M.A. in Psychology and Philosophy. He then trained at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art.
He was a member of Oxford Printmakers Cooperative throughout the 1980s and took part in many group exhibitions. He has worked with the burin for over 25 years 'The steel tip of the burin, as it is driven into the copper plate, gives rise to the elastic tension and beauty of the engraved line, and sets fire to the imagination'.
His engraved work can be found in the print collections of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, the British Museum, London, the Hermitage, St Petersburg, the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, as well as in numerous private collections.
