About

There is a nostalgic mood to much of Albert Barker's work. He thought that "the old does not survive and the world is being made over of a thinner, poorer fabric". Some of his works are tinged with sadness for the inevitable march of time. This image is in the collection of the Brandywine Museum and is illustrated in the publication "A Visual Memoir, Prints and Drawings of Albert W. Barker". Albert Barker was born in Chicago where his parents were visiting on business, but his true home was Moylan, Pennsylvania. He was educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Haverford College and he eventually earned a Ph.D. in Greek from the University of Pennsylvania. He initially taught Greek at Haverford and served as assistant professor of fine art at Swarthmore. Later he served as director of art education for the public schools of Wilmington, Delaware for eight years . In 1926, Barker discovered lithography and an ability to do on stone what he had been doing with charcoal. In 1927, he met and studied with master lithographer, Bolton Brown, and became devoted to lithography. He was intent on recording the landscapes and farms of his native area. In 1934, he was given a solo show at the Smithsonian.
