Dates of existence


A W H Barnes was born in 1888. He studied drawing and painting at The Glasgow School of Art from 1911/12 to 1913/14, during which time he worked as a photographer's assistant (1911/12) and an art dealer's assistant (1912-1914). It is possible that he left in 1914/15 to join the forces, and was injured in the Battle of the Somme in 1916. In session 1916/17 he returned for afternoon classes in drawing and painting, and in 1919/20 he returned full-time to study drawing and painting until 1920/21. In the Dictionary of Scottish Art and Architecture by Peter J M McEwan, Barnes is described as a Glasgow artist in oil and watercolour and painter of landscapes and topographical subjects. He is said to have moved from Glasgow to London in 1930, then to Cambridge in 1932. Barnes is listed in the School's World War One Roll of Honour.
