Sir Claude Francis Barry, RBA (English, 1883–1970)
The Piazza, Venice, Night, 1961
Throughout Sir Claude Francis Barry’s career his style was constantly evolving, but his passion was always color. He said that color was to painting “what love is in a man’s life.” Later in life he reworked images from etchings, creating oil paintings in pure colors from a simplified palette.
