John Callow was born in 1822. He was taught by his brother, the artist William Callow. He became a member of the New Watercolour Society, and an associate of the Old Watercolour Society.[1] He was junior professor of drawing at the Royal Military College, Addiscombe[2] from 1855 to 1861.[1] According to H.M. Vibart, writing in 1894, Callow "never became a favourite of the cadets, for he was a jaundiced, saturnine character with no good-humour or geniality about him."[2] He was master of landscape at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, 1861–1865, and professor at Queen's College, London, 1875–1878. He painted marine subjects and landscapes, mostly in watercolour.[1] He died in 1878 in New Cross, south-east London.
