Thomas Baker was mainly a landscape painter working in oil and watercolour. He exhibited in Birmingham and at the Royal Academy in London. He lived in Leamington between 1854 and 1862 and many of his landscapes show the local area. At this time Warwick Castle was a popular subject for artists. This painting belongs to a British tradition of romantic views of historic buildings and ruins.
