9.5: Works of Art, circa 1882-1963

Photographs in this subseries document all of Barnard's major sculptures from his earliest recognized work
Sleeping Boy
to the plaster studies for his uncompleted opus,
Rainbow Arch
. Of particular note are prints of his sculptural commissions for the Pennsylvania State House and his many works depicting Abraham Lincoln. The bulk of the prints are vintage, some of which are mounted on board and inscribed. Several of the early photographs were taken in conjunction with a 1908 exhibition of Barnard's work at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston; the negatives for these images can be found in the Glass Plate Negatives subseries. This subseries also includes photographs that depict the work of other artists, particularly those who completed portraits of George Grey Barnard.
Folders in this subseries are arranged in chronological order by the creation date of the sculpture depicted. The creation date appears in parenthesis after the title of the work of art and is different from the dates that designate the presumed date of the photographic print. The chronological folders are followed by miscellaneous and unidentified works; works of art by other artists, and finally black and white transparencies and copy negatives.
