9.4: Study Photographs, circa 1882-1938

This subseries consists of photographs that were designated as study photographs. They depict a wide variety of works of art by other artists, ranging from ancient art to work created by Barnard's contemporaries. However photographs depicting medieval and Renaissance art and architecture, particularly details from Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel, form the bulk of this collection. Presumably this collection of reference photographs was assembled and retained by the artist and reflects his interests as well as sources for his own work.
Folders are grouped into five folders of Medieval Art and Architecture and 14 folders of Ancient to Modern Works of Art, designations that were retained from the previous arrangement. Within the Ancient to Modern Works of Art folders, images are arranged in loose chronological order by creation date of the object depicted.
This subseries has not been scanned.
