Claude Francis Barry (1883 - 1970)

Much of Barry's early life has been pieced together from letters found in his briefcase after his death. Also in the briefcase – along with a very full passport and his battered old eye-shade – was an unpublished manuscript on painting. This is the source of his quoted pronouncements on life and art. 1883 Claude Francis Barry born in England to British parents1885 His mother dies when he is two years old1897 Goes to Harrow, leaves after two years due to a nervous breakdown1899 Travels to Italy with a doctor - a drawing and painting tour1900 Returns to England where Sir Alfred East R.A tutors Barry1906 First paintings accepted at Royal Academy.
