Biography from Jim's Of Lambertville:
Joseph Barrett was born in Midland, North Carolina, in 1936 and studied at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Barrett, now of Lahaska, Pennsylvania, has been painting his entire adult life. His favorite subjects include the landscape surrounding New Hope and many local landmarks often encompassing figures into his compositions. 

Barrett utilizes a heavy impasto and his palette bears similarities to that of Fern Coppedge and George Sotter. Barrett's paintings are always found in unique and somewhat charming handmade frames designed by the artist and finished in metal leaf.

A living contemporary of the no longer living "New Hope School" impressionist painters, Joseph Barrett resides outside of New Hope above his old-fashioned antique shop and studio.  Entering Barrett's shop is like taking a step back in time.  Inside this cluttered and dusty haven of treasures from the past, is a studio spanning only four by eight feet. This little studio, containing cans of old brushes and hundreds of used paint tubes, is reminiscent of something found in a turn of the century photograph. It is here that the Pennsylvania Impressionist tradition is still being carried on.
