This subseries consists of glass plate negatives and lantern slides of works of art and installation views of Barnard's second collection of medieval art known as the Abbaye. Plates of works of art are solely of Barnard's sculptures, including a large group photographed by Barnard Coolidge for a 1908 exhibition of Barnard's work at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Prints of most of these plates can be found in the Works of Art subseries of photographs. The glass plates of the Abbaye are installation views of the medieval sculptures and architectural elements that constitute the collection. Prints of some of these plates can be found in the subseries of photographs titled Medieval Art and Collections. Lantern slides include images of works of art as well as Barnard in his studio and Barnard working on "Lincoln in Thought" with Ida Tarbell.
