Claude Francis Barry

British 1884-1970 

Sir Claude Francis Barry, 3rd Baronet, later known as Francis Barry, was a prominent British etcher and oil painter celebrated for his innovative artistic styles. Born in Kensington, London, he received private education and traveled extensively in Italy. Studying under Sir Alfred East and Stanhope Forbes, he thrived in artist colonies in Newlyn and St Ives, exhibiting at renowned institutions such as the Royal Academy. Barry’s career extended to the Continent, with Milan as a significant hub, though his etching plates were tragically destroyed during a bombing raid in 1944. He settled in Jersey post-World War II, where he produced notable portraits and explored innovative artistic styles. His enduring legacy is marked by his groundbreaking contributions to art.
