Sir Oswald Walters Brierly (19 May 1817 - 14 December 1894) was an English marine painter born in Chester, England.

After studying art in Bloomsbury, he went to Plymouth to study naval architecture and rigging. He exhibited drawings at the Royal Academy in 1839, and then spent some time in the study of navigation.

In 1841 Brierly sailed to Australia with Benjamin Boyd in the yacht Wanderer. Brierly lived in southern New South Wales in a new settlement named Boydtown. Brierly Point on the coast of New South Wales commemorates his connection with that colony.

In 1848 Captain Owen Stanley invited Brierly to be his guest during an Admiralty survey of the north and east coast of Australia and the adjacent islands. Brierly accompanied the survey during two cruises and took not only sketches, but notes of considerable value. His name was given to an island in the Louisiade archipelago.

In 1850 Henry Keppel asked Brierly to join him on HMS Maeander, on which he visited New Zealand, crossed the Pacific to the coasts of Chile, Peru, and Mexico, returned by the Straits of Magellan and Rio de Janeiro to England at the end of 1851. Keppel's account of the voyage, published in 1853, was illustrated by eight lithographs by Brierly, who was made a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society on his return.

After the declaration of war with the Russian Empire in February 1854, Brierly was again Keppel's guest, on HMS St Jean d'Acre, the painter was present at all the operations of the allied fleets in the Baltic Sea, he sent home sketches for publication in the Illustrated London News. On his return Brierly had a series of large lithographs executed from his drawings, which were published in 1855 with the title “The English and French Fleets in the Baltic, 1854”.

After his return from The Baltic he was commanded by Queen Victoria to take sketches from the royal yacht of the great naval review which was held at Spithead at the end of the war. After this he received the constant patronage of the royal family, and he received the honour of knighthood in 1885. He died in London in December 1894.
