Thomas Mann Baynes

Canterbury Cathedral by Thomas Mann Baynes

Thomas Mann Baynes (1794–1876) was an English artist and lithographer. He is known for his drawings and watercolours of landscapes, buildings and outdoor events.


He was London born, and is probably the son of James Baynes, a noted watercolour artist. He produced views of Liverpool and Ireland, and appears to have made a successful living as a printer.
